American terminology used in the description!
There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English.

Only basic crocheting skills will be needed to make this crochet bear pattern: slip stitch, chain, single crochet, increasing, decreasing and double crochet. More difficult skill (crochet jacquard), I show in details in the video of this pattern. But you can crochet with one color and don’t change colors in the body.
