You know how they say that England and America are two nations divided by a common language? Well let me show you that in the world of crocheting, that truism is rife and is a constant source of a headache for me. I’m sure I’m not alone
This is the result of reading a crochet pattern in English English instead of the American English that it was written in….
The pattern said to stitch in double crochet stitches (dc’s) which to the English is what would give you the result on the left. I must have had a total mind block last night because what an American dc means is an English treble. Not much difference is there….hahaha!! (The colour change is entirely a conscious decision by the way).
I’m going to finish the square on the right now by adding a flower. What’s the betting it is going to be done twice before I read the pattern right?!
