Researching Crochet Abbreviations and Definitions - Crochet Tip #61

What are some crochet terms and definitions that you need help understanding?

You will find pattern authors that have their own terms and abbreviations. You may be new to crochet and not understand any of the language. We are global crocheters, so some terms will be different around the world, depending on the country you are in. When you stumble across something that you do not understand, I always recommend you ask the pattern author first, since they are the best resource. Sometimes it is difficult to reach the author, so you must do alternative research. That will be posting on different message forums exposing your question to a variety of people. There is usually someone who will be able to answer the question.

I am including a link to a chart, with many of the common crochet terms.

Transcription Audio - Closed Captioning

Voice Recognition(Transcribed Audio), Close Captioning is available on many of my crochet videos. It is not a perfect technology but is being fine tuned by Google and YouTube. I wanted those of you who may need it to to know that it is available on the videos.

I was able to pull the transcribed text from my video, edit some of the words and then re-upload the text. This is something that I am learning along the way as well.
