I am new here and I'm hoping someone can help me with my confusion. I decided to learn to crochet, bought myelf a book and began by making squares. The book I used was one originally published in the 60's and has been reissued several times. I then bought myself a Readers Digest book of knitting and crochet stitches and settled in to making myself a lacy tunic, so I thought. The 2 books I have have confused me, I hope my explanation doesn't confuse you! I thought I knew how to do a double crochet and a treble but have discovered that was is described in the 60's book as a double crochet is, in the readers digest book, a single. The half treble in the 60's book is a half double in the readers digest...............confused, I certainly am!
I an wondering if the names of stitches here in the UK are different to those in the US, the 60's book being a UK edition, the Readers Digest book has a printed price in $'s inside the cover.
Can someone shed some light on this?
Thankyou for your time
