Written in UK crochet terminology. The difference between UK and US is only in the stitch names - the UK adds one to every US stitch, so a US single crochet is a UK double, a US double is a UK treble, etc. The stitches themselves are the same, just a difference in naming convention (the UK names the stitches after how many loops are on the hook's shaft, whereas the US names the stitches after how many times you 'pull through' to finish the stitch)
