    I have been writing my own crochet patterns and have followed all of the abbreviations, but I have many of the abbreviations in caps, such as SC and DC. Should I go back and change my patterns to have them lower case, as you have listed? Does this make them incorrect for the standard or is it interchangeable? Thanks!

      No really. I don’t think that is a deal breaker. I have done that too. Usually when a sentence starts like “Dc in the first stitch.” the first letter is capitalized because it’s the first letter of the sentence. I think you are fine.

    I would like to see the Crochet Crowd Journal for 2016 this year. Last year’s journal was sooooooo helpful to me.

    Even though I have been crocheting for 48 years, I always like to refer back to the stitch glossary to make sure that I am reading the right ones. 🙂

    Thank you this is interesting, but may I ask if this is US or British stitiches? As know to my cost, the terms used by the US are different to those us by the UK
