3.5mm crochet hook
ch = chain
dc = double crochet
tr = treble
ss = slip stitch
sp = space
This is written in UK terminology. Instead of the standing treble and dc, you can join in the yarn and work 3 ch to count for first tr or 2 ch to count for first dc. You can either work in ends each time you change colour, or you can leave them all to the end.
