the only problem with this; is that based of the books i learnt crochet from this is also called a treble stitch.
i don't know if its relevant to whether you learn european 'v' american or the timeline (60's, 70's, 80's, etc) but some of the books refer to this stitch as a treble.

the way i learnt was :
double crochet
half-treble
treble
double treble
etc

but some books :

single crochet
half double crochet
double crochet
treble

(just some FYI for those who end up with my problem Happy )

Yeah, I've had a few problems with this too when using American vs English patterns. I start crocheting and think I'm going crazy until I realise I'm doing the wrong stitch because it's an international pattern.
