t-ch = turning chain

Chain used when starting a new row (or “line”).  We rotate our work around and start a new chain before the called out stitch.  For example:  We come to the end of a row for double crochet.  We have 1 loop on our hook and turn the crocheted fabric around to work in the correct direction.  Now we chain 3 and then start our double crochet.
