Single Crochet (s c): Having a stitch on needle, insert hook in work, take up thread and draw through work and stitch on needle at the same time. This is often called slip-stitch, for which it is frequently used, and also close chain stitch.
Double Crochet (d c): Having a stitch on needle (as will be understood in following directions), insert hook in work, take up thread and draw through, thread over again and draw through the two stitches on needle. USA – (Sc)

Half Treble or Short Treble Crochet (h tr c): Like treble, until you have the three stitches on needle; thread over and draw through all at once, instead of, working them off two at a time. USA – (Hdc)
Long Treble Crochet (1 tr): Like treble until you have the three stitches on needle; thread over and draw through one (thread over, draw through two) twice.
Double Treble Crochet (d tr): Thread over twice, hook in work, draw through, making four stitches on needle; (over and draw through two) three times. USA – (Tr)
Triple Treble Crochet (t tr): Thread over three times, hook in work and draw through, making five stitches on the needle; work off the stitches two at a time, as before directed.
