Hi I just needed some help with some terminology. What does dc and dtr mean? I have never croched before and the instruction said that it is using australian terminiology. Please if anyone knows it would be really helpful. Thanks:mrgreen:

Ok, dc means double crochet and dtr means double treble.

On this site, there are videos of how the stitches are made, as well as written explication, but since your terms are australian (the same as british), you have to look at the "Single Crochet" video for "dc" and the "Treble Crochet" video for dtr.

You can refer to this chart for the names of stitches.
