I started off wanting to learn to make amigurmi. I couldn't get the hang of it so started off with simple solid blocks in different stitches. Then I went over to You Tube and could handle the amigurumi tutes more easily Smiley

Hooked on Crochet is a good site too.  It's got lots of great patterns and how to's.

I really like Ravely for patterns, and the Lion Brand website has a lot of tutes and patterns as well.

I started with this crocheted grocery tote from purl bee. http://www.purlbee.com/crocheted-linen-grocery-tote/

I'm the sort that hates repetition just for the sake of mastery, so this was perfect.  Interesting enough to not be boring, easy enough to not be overwhelming.  The toughest part for me was learning to turn the hook through stitches.  Once I got that, it was all easy-peasy.

Purl bee also has step by step photos of crochet basics here: http://www.purlbee.com/crochet-basics/
I used them to learn each stitch as it appeared in the grocery tote pattern.

Now if only they had the same thing for knitting, I'd be capable of doing both!

I am still fairly new to crocheting but I started out with scarves and dish cloths.
