Dc– double crochet

Htr– half treble

Tr– treble

Dc2tog– double crochet 2 together (decrease)

Dtr– double treble

Sl st– slip stitch

St– Stitch

Yrh– yarn round hook

Standing stitches– a standing stitch can only be used when beginning with a new yarn, for example if your next row will begin with a htr, instead of sl st to the first st and working 2 ch you can begin directly with a htr as follows: place a slip knot on your hook, yrh, then insert the hook into the first st, yrh, bring the working yarn through, yrh, draw through all 3 loops, you have now started your row with a htr stitch rather than chains, this can be applied to all stitches, but remember you can only use it when attaching a new yarn to your work.
