Crochet Abbreviations

This is not a complete list of crochet abbreviations, but it is a good list for beginners.  These are the abbreviations that I find that I use the most in my patterns.  I will be adding to this list as I list free crochet patterns with new abbreviations in them.

ch: chain
st: stitch
sl st: slip stitch
sc: single crochet
hdc: half double crochet
dc: double crochet
trc: triple crochet
tr: treble crochet
dtr: double triple crochet
yo: yarn over
sp: space
sk: skip
fpdc: front post double crochet
bpdc: back post double crochet
sc2tog: single crochet two together (decrease)
bl: back loop
blo: back loop only

Crochet abbreviations are an important part of reading a crochet pattern.  You can always come back to this as much as you need to!
