Basic Crochet Term Abreviations | Posh Pooch Designs

I have had a lot of People ask me,
 "What do all the Crochet Abbreviations mean"?

Most crochet patterns and pattern designers include a 
"Stitches and Terms" section at the top of the pattern
that include the abbreviations used and what they mean.

This is so you can refer back to them when ever needed.
The basic United States terms and abbreviations
 are as follows:

There are more terms then these I have listed,
 but these are the ones most used.

Do not get frustrated.

If you see an abbreviation that you don't 
know what it is, 
you can always ask the designer of the Pattern
or Google it.
Most Patterns designers list their email address
 right in the pattern.
