US and UK crochet terms are different, but they use the same terms to describe different stitches. Confused? So were we. Here is a conversion chart. Now all you have to do is determine whether your pattern is a US or UK pattern, and then you can make sure you are using the correct stitches. Most patterns have a notice on them to say who made the patterns, and where it was printed. This should be an indication of the terminology used.
