Stitches and Terms

CH = Chain

SC = Single Crochet

HDC = Half Double Crochet

DC = Double Crochet

FP = Front Post

BP = Back Post

Y/O = Yarn over hook

CSDC = Chainless Starting Double Crochet

CSTC = Chainless Starting Treble Crochet

BLOSC = Back Loop Only SC

of work

Cluster = keeping last loop of each stitch on the hook, make all stitches in the same stitch or chain space indicated, then Y/O and pull through all loops on hook to finish the cluster
