As I mentioned previously, I got started with crochet through watching YouTube videos. The ones that I found Most helpful were those posted by the crochet crowd (http://www.thecrochetcrowd.com/en/). The tutorials were really well constructed and with the ability to re-watch the same section of video multiple times was invaluable.
Here’s a link directly to the playlist that got me started http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL69F5A7FE3F95232F. If you are at all interested in starting to crochet I can’t recommend another starting off point more highly.
