hey everyone! I started crocheting a long time ago but I only got as far as crocheting a ball of yarn which in the end look like a really pretty rope, now im trying to improve on my skills (or lack of). I got a book today but I think its just to confusing or just doesnt help all that much. I made my first row with success but now im stuck and dont know how to go from there onto making the next row. I thought you would be doing the same thing but I'm not sure. Any suggestions (since its hard giving directions over the net....any good websites I could visit?)

Thanks a bunch!

What book are you using? I learned my basic stitches from Crocheting for Dummies - it's a good book with a lot of really easy to understand instructions, and good pictures that show you just where you need to insert the hook and everything.

About.com has a good guide to learning to crochet online, including some actual photos of the steps - check it out here:

I so completely agree with Crocheting for Dummies!! I learned using that book... and I still refer to it occasionally. It's got to be the best printed resource out there. Clear pictures, redone in reverse for lefties. Not that I need that, but it's nice that they included leftie stuff. :)
