On Kitewife's behalf:

The best way to learn to crochet is to be taught it in person. If you don't have a friend or relative who can already crochet (grandmother? elderly aunt?), then visit a locally-run wool (yarn) shop and ask for a quick lesson - they will happily help create a new customer.

Alternatively, look out for posters or notices advertising Knit'n'natter or Stitch'n'bitch events - the regulars are often keen to share their skills.

Hi! Lion Brand Yarn's site (http://lionbrand.com) actually has a really good set of tutorials for earning to knit and to crochet. I managed to finally learn to knit via their instructions after struggling with it for years. I'm actually a self-taught crocheter--I first learned by studying my grandmother's old crochet books. I did find one book some years ago called Crochet Your Way. Best crochet instruction book ever. It includes illustrations for each of the stitches for both left and right hand crocheters. Also included are the international stitch symbols and how to interpret charts using said symbols. The book has a lot of really helpful information. I highly recommend it. Good luck!

Do you know anyone who knows how to crochet? That's the best way to learn. But, there are plenty of Instructables and videos elsewhere on the web that you can view for free. You could also borrow books from the library.
