How to read the written instructions

  • BS - Border Stitch – Single Crochet through both loops
  • SC - Single Crochet in back loop of the stitch in the current row 
  • DC - Double Crochet front loop of the stitch two rows below 
The table of written instructions for each pattern tells you which row you’re on and which colour to use on that row.

In the example below, row 1 is highlighted in white; therefore, you are crocheting the whole row in colour A.

Row 2 is highlighted in green; therefore, you are crocheting the whole row in colour B.

Once you have finished a row, you can use the checkbox to tick it off. So you remember which row you are currently working.
