So I'm trying to convert a pattern written in UK terms to US terms, but I cannot find this anywhere. I even messaged the designer on Insta and so far no reply. htrm is what the instructions say, and I'm starting to think maybe it was a typo?

I consider myself a pretty good beginner crocheter! How hard is the raglan baby sweater? I love it!

please can you tell me what is the US abbreviation tc mean in the UK. I know the usual ones but have not met this one before?

I am assuming it is triple crochet, what you call double treble crochet(dtr) in the UK or it could be turning chain.
