I know that when you convert from UK to US that you change TR to DC and DC to SC.  Do you change any other information in the pattern?  For example:

 

Row 1 ::

work 1dc in 2nd chain from hook. Continue working dc's into each chain till the end. You should have worked 19 stitches in total. Turn the work.

Row 2 ::

Chain 3, then work 1tr into first stitch. *Skip 2 stitches, then work 3tr's (I call this a "tr cluster") into next stitch*. Repeat between ** 4 more times, skip 2 stitches, then work 2tr's into last stitch on row.

 

In Row 1, would I still start my pattern in the 2nd chain?  Or in Row 2, would I still chain 3?  I am not sure if other things need to change in the pattern or just the type of stitch itself?

yes

Just the names are different. They call US slip stitch= UK Sc, Us sc =UK Dc,  US Dc=UK tr etc.

So, you just change the name and keep going.

If it looks confusing, I would write the US symbols on my pattern so it is more understandable.
