American SC vs Australasian SC
I learned to crochet when I was very young. I was taught by my step mother. She told me what each stitch was called and why, but of course I forgot.
So when I picked up the art of crochet again this year, I taught myself using the book "Stitch N' Bitch Crochet - The Happy Hooker". I must add now that I was born and raised in the states but moved to New Zealand some 6-7 years ago. Anyway... this is an American book, so I'm assuming that it is the American terms for everything, right?
I know that my MIL (who lives here in NZ and also crochets) often has to clarify if I'm using "the American lingo" or "her lingo". So this leads me to my question. What IS the difference between the American sc and dc and the Australasian/European sc and dc? And I wonder which one I'm doing? LOL
