    Jora Hael,
    I looked yesterday at every list of symbols and crochet terminology in 6 languages and I didn't see anything that started with a pr (ps is puff stitch) I also looked on line for the picture that was posted to see if I could find the pattern. I can't tell if they are cats or tigers. I didn't find anything. Usualy the pattern will state what stitches will be used and some sort of description in making them. (if they are a unique stitch). There is a lady(Imalefty) that replied to one of my post that has made several amigurumis maybe she will know what that term is.

    I copied this off a link in how to make amigurumis and the stitches are the basic crochet stitches so I can't help with your question but there are others on this forum that may be able to help you.

    prs might mean pairs. I'm not sure. Maybe they want 6 pairs of whatever D is. Again, I'm not sure if this is right.

    Hi jean Marie,
    You may be right about the pairs part the picture she attached look like cats and they each have four legs.
    I don't think it is the crochet stitches she has an issue with but the instructions part.
    It would help if she could attach the pattern or list the instruction where she is having a problem.

    Well, I dug up the free pattern but it is not in any crochet terminology I recognized. It's probably translated from another language. It is an adorable kitty.
