I agree with Sunflowers - it's easier to watch someone do it - there are fantastic videos online - that is how I refreshed my memory and learned to do so much more with knitting, crocheting, and beading.
There is a terrific website called RAVELRY
for knitting and crocheting. They have forums just like here, for anything you can think of, and the people there are very helpful. There are TONS of patterns - most free, some for a fee, but I've made lots of things from patterns there. I'm not sure if you need to sign up and wait for an invitation to join that site anymore - I had to wait several weeks, a few years ago - but I think they are instant now? Not sure.
I am not always here, but will be glad to help with any questions, if I can.
