Crochet 101 - Getting Started
Before you can really get started you must learn a few basics...
Holding the Hook
There really is no right or wrong way to hold your hook. You'll need to experiment a little & find which way feels the most comfortable to you. However, most folks hold their hooks one of two ways: Overhand or a like a pencil. I hold my hook like a pencil, so all of my pictures and tutorials will be taught that way.
Creating a Slip Knot
Before you can start any project, you must begin with a slip knot. This is basically an adjustable knot. There are many different ways to make a slip knot. Keep in mind there is no wrong or right method. As you long as you have a slip knot, then you're A-OK!
