Maybe you can get books from library or a fabric store, good luck.

The best project to learn with is a basic granny square. There are endless different projects you can make using granny squares. Plus once you are good and familiar with making it, you can very easily learn the other stitches, and can learn to make other projects as well.

Here is a very good site to learn from. http://crochet.about.com/

It has tutorials, pictures, as well as videos to guide you. And best of all it's free! Welcome to the wonderful world of crochet!

Go to YouTube and type in "beginner crochet" and you will find lots of lessons. Good for you for wanting to learn!

I've found that line drawings work much better for showing you where to insert the crochet hook than videos or photographs. Go to http://www.craftyarncouncil.com/?q=node/28 for single crochet instructions. You can click on the left for instructions for the other stitches. Once you learn, you'll love crochet. There's no end to what you can create!

The way I liked best was to watch a crocheter as she stitched.

For written directions with pictures, go to:


in top line under name of site, click Learn

under that click Getting Started

under that click Chain and Single Stitch

See below for pic of beginning a chain from this site. That will get you started. More types of crochet stitches are on site. There are also easy patterns. Happy crocheting!
