If a pattern reads "use RH SS" it is referring to Red Heart Super Saver? Right?  It would not mean RH super sport, would it?

Chances are it's referring to the Super Saver -- the most common cheap yarn. What is the pattern? Can you tell from the picture? The hook size should clue you in, I think.

Thanks homebunnyj.  The pattern is the Triangle Stroller Blankie on Crochetville.   I went back and checked what hook the designer used (6.00)  So it must be the worsted weight.  I used 4.00 as I am a very loose crocheter.  However, with one additional colour sequence left to be done, I thought it already might be large enough and started second guessing myself.  Now I think I will just keep going and see.

from my experience with crochetville most of them use and love red heart Super saver. However if the pattern uses a yarn that is worsted weight (like red heart) you can use any worsted weight yarn you like. the possibilities are endless!
I want to say I've seen a few patterns with the abbreviation that you mentioned and it typically means red heart super saver.

Also keep in mind that's a forum too and you can ask there. Smiley Not that we don't want you here but they're pretty friendly too. Smiley
