Special Stitches:

Reverse Sc – Reverse single crochet stitch is the same as a regular single crochet — except in reverse. Instead of working from right to left, you work from left to right.

Cesc – Centre Extended Single Crochet (Waistcoat Stitch) Formed the same way as a standard extended single crochet. Instead of working the usual way locate the inverted V-shape on the post of the stitch 1 row below. Insert your hook in the centre of that V.  Create loose stitches with a large hook to make it easier to insert hook into the V.
