    This pattern confuses double crochet with single crochet

      I should add, in the US. Not sure what it is elsewhere, just adding for awareness of US crocheters.

        I get that it can be confusing, however the post does state that it’s written in UK terms x

      Hi Kristin
      This pattern is written using UK crochet terms. A double crochet in the UK is equivalent to a single crochet in US terms. Hope this makes things a little clearer
