Hi Mary. I have learned how to make jewelry by watching tutorials on You Tube. They have step-by-step tutorials on everything under the sun. Check them out. I'm sure you will find one that you love. Stay well Mary.
If you buy a book on Learning to crochet that will tell you all you need to know! If you already have some idea, then choose a pattern and they usually give full instructions how to do the stitches, Best wishes.
The Senior Center in my town has classes for Knitting, Crochet and various Crafts that Seniors enjoy. It is also a great place to meet people with similar interests. Good Luck!
I am partial to Crochet because my Grandmother & Mother Crocheted and Knitted. Using one instrument (a crochet hook) was easier than two (knitting needles), OH yes, JoAnn's or other Craft places that sell Yarn should have lessons available. (once you are 'HOOKED') everyone benefits. :) ENJOY!
missmustardseed.com has very beginner crochet lessons and a couple of easy projects.
