I checked out the Lion Brand site and just got confused.  Crochet isn't intuitive for me like knitting is.

Can anyone recommend some simple sites on "How to Crochet" for the crocheting impaired? ;)

Thanks in advance!!

I'd be interested in any sites too. I'm also crochet impaired. I know how to do double crochet and that's it. Pitiful.

Just yesterday I went to youtube and did a search for crochet videos. some of them are really fantastic, some are bad.  But I got help with stitches that I couldn't figure out. 


I'm trying to find a pattern to knit a stocking cap with just two needles.  My MIL got me started on one a long long time ago and then took it from me and just finished it.  (boy if I would have known then what I later found out...... that was just the beginning................)   hm. i should write a book!


I stopped at the local yarn store and it looks like I'm going to have to be brave and try knitting a hat on 4 needles...eeegads.... I was hoping to avoid that.
