Well, it happened. I graduated. Lucky for you guys I have time to blog!
I promised you guys a couple of posts before and one of them was about how to read a pattern.
What I’m going to do is explain all the different types of abbreviations that there are when it comes to reading a pattern, and hopefully y’all will be reading patterns in no time!
Every crocheter knows that starting a project requires you to chain, or CH
When working on a circular project, most patterns are written in rounds (RND(S)), if the pattern is just straight, the pattern will be written as Rows.
The main stitches are Single Crochet (SC), half double crochet (HDC), double crochet (DC), treble crochet (TC).
If the pattern requires you to skip three spaces and double crochet in the next stitch, that would look something like this – sk 3 sp, dc in next sp.
If there are other stitches that you I haven’t mentioned, or that you need to look up this is a great site to use. If that doesn’t help, then check out some YouTube videos! Isn’t the internet great?!
I hope this helps you guys, keep on crocheting!
