    When I got back into crocheting, about 4 years ago, I just bought a simple basic book that had a lot of differnent stiches in it and just kept working at it. I used a site too but don't have the link on this computer. I will post it when the other computer is back from being fixed.

    Learn to Crochet: Lion Brand Yarn

    It was something similar to this, might be the exact one I used. There are also a lot of videos on youtube.

    The nice thing about crocheting, is that there are pretty much only three diffrent stiches and then variations of those stichres, Chain stichers, single and double stiches, and unlike knitting you can pull it out and start again if need be or just pull out one piece and its easy enough to redo. reading a pattern is fairly simple, most books use short form, but have a list somewhere in teh book stating what each short form means and once you get the hang of it, its fairly simple... just remember to try and keep your yarn loose. I often pick up my crocheting again this time of year and I might be a bit rusty for the first few minutes and then I am flying again.... I can watch tv and not my work (unless its a super intericate pattern) which is nice... good luck with your projects. There are kits at places like micheals called “I taught myself to crochet“ I have one for knitting, and they are pretty simple in terms of teaching or reteaching the steps and how to hold your fingers etc.... ok now I have the urge to get out my hook and yarn lol
