Let’s talk about the elephant in the room…UK vs US crochet terms. For a new crocheter it can be extremely confusing. How do you know if a pattern is using US or UK terms? At Bella Coco, I will always state in the notes section whether a crochet pattern is using UK or US abbreviations. So, no worries there! It can be confusing knowing your half treble crochet from your half double crochet (spoiler: they’re EXACTLY the same!) So, my tip?

Unsure of the differences between UK and US terms? Need a refresher on how to do your stitches? In my ‘How to crochet: A handy reference guide’ EBook I help you with all of these terms and you can always have them to hand! You will also get exclusive access to free video instructions. Learn more about the eBook here.
All of this aside, I have a BEAUTIFUL stitch to share with you today. The half treble crochet (UK) or half double crochet (US) stitch is a neat little stitch that’s ideal for blankets and cushions. For the rest of the post I’ll be calling it the half treble stitch as this is a UK blog! But don’t worry if you’re used to US terms, while the names differ, the stitch is exactly the same.
