My mom just bought me a new 2 new balls of yarn( my fave colors pink and black XD!) anyways, I want to makw something with it but I dont know what...and all i can do is single crochet and even that isn't that good either. Also no matter what I do it keeps getting narrower as I go but oh well Im woking on a scarf now its an ugly color but I like it.

Check out www.stitchguide.com - They have videos on how to do lots of stitches. Most stitches are a variation of a single crochet, and are very easy to do once you see the video.Try double crochet or triple crochet, but browse to see if theres anything else you can try.

Count the stitches as you go across the row so you dont lose track. If you are making a scarf, maybe start with 20 stitches.  Chain 1 stitch every time you turn your piece, (so for your starting chain, crochet 21 stitches, and count the 21st as the turning chain). Dont forget to crochet in the first stitch of your row, not the 2nd. the chain 1 doesnt count as the first stitch. it just gives the new row some height.  stitch into the first stitch AFTER the chain 1.
