Crochet Tip of the Week – Turning Chains

When you purchase through links on my site, I may earn an affiliate commission. Here’s how it works.

I created this coloured pinnable image for you – showing the crochet symbol, US Crochet Term, US Crochet Abbreviation and the recommended number of turning chains for some common crochet stitches.

I hope you find this helpful –

Recommended Turning Chains

Slip Stitch (sl st) = 0
Single Crochet (sc) = 1
Half Double Crochet (hdc) = 2
Double Crochet (dc) = 3
Triple (or treble) Crochet (tr) = 4
Double Triple Crochet (dtr) = 5

Remember: These are the recommended turning chains – they are not always used by Designers when writing patterns – you should always follow the specific instructions in the Designer’s Pattern as they are written.

  1. Thank you so much for this!!! I’m an experienced knitter, but still very new to crochet (and loving it!). Especially as a Lefty, I’m thankful for references like this which I can refer to!
