Crochet Conversion Chart

I thought it would be a good reference to post a conversion chart for common crochet terms.  The UK & the US use the same stitches, but we each call them something different.  Here are the most common stitches.

 

                                 US

                           UK 

chain(ch)

chain(ch)

single crochet (sc)

double crochet (dc)

double crochet (dc)

treble (tr)

half double crochet (hdc)

half treble (htr)

triple crochet (trc)

double treble (dtr)

slip stitch (sl st)

slip stitch (sl st)

 

 

All of my patterns are written in US terms.  So, (for my UK crocheters) if my pattern states SC, you will crochet what you consider a DC.  Make sense?  If you have any questions, or need help, just ask.

 

Happy Crocheting!

WIP Wednesday

I love “Wordless Wednesday” but have found that I’m always in the middle of something. Hence, Work In Progress Wednesday.

 

 Here’s how it works: 

Show off what you’re making. Post a photo of a project you’re in the middle of….as much or as little of it as you want. Crochet, knit, sewing, quilting, you name it. Add the link to your project (using the Mr.Linky tool). Feel free to copy & paste my “WIP” button to add to your entry or blog. It’s a fun way to let us know what you’re up to. I hope you’ll join in.

New Patterns Coming Soon

I have quite a few projects that just need finishing touches and then they’ll be ready for purchase.  I just have to learn to finish my open projects before beginning new ones.  Here are 2 patterns that just need a little TLC and they’ll be done.  Hopefully they’ll both be ready this week.

 

  ”The Royal Bow”

 

The “Jackie O”

 

I’m also working on a free pattern for a guest blog post (super excited when they asked me!), a free dishcloth pattern with a pic tutorial of the stitch, and other good things!  I’ll keep you posted.  I’ve also been working on this pattern….it needs some rewording, and I’ve just been super busy, so I haven’t had a chance to rework it for my pattern testers….soon!  It doesn’t officially have a name yet, so if you have any suggestions let me know.  So far I have tons of “raspberry” name suggestions.  Even though the hat calls for pink I may go with one of those. 

 

 

Hopefully I’ll get all these caught up so I can start some new ideas that are floating around in my head.

On a side note….if you have my site on your blog roll, my new posts aren’t updating in the blog roll feed.  You need to go in and change my site because it seems as if that’s the one thing that didn’t go through when I switched from blogger.  I’m assuming it’s because blogger had it updating as ambassadorcrochet.blogspot.com.  My site is now www.ambassadorcrochet.com.  I’d love for all my older blogging friends to find me again :).  (by older I mean those that bookmarked me before I purchased my domain last year. lol)

 

Happy Crocheting!

W.I.P. Wednesday

Wow! I can’t believe its been a whole week since I posted. It’s been a crazy, busy summer. I’m not planning on disappearing permanently, but my posts the next two or three weeks may be a little sporadic.  I’m planning a big surprise for someone awesome……shhhhh! ;D

Here’s, Work In Progress Wednesday.

 

 Here’s how it works: 

Show off what you’re making. Post a photo of a project you’re in the middle of….as much or as little of it as you want. Crochet, knit, sewing, quilting, you name it. Add the link to your project (using the Mr.Linky tool). Feel free to copy & paste my “WIP” button to add to your entry or blog. It’s a fun way to let us know what you’re up to.
