Now that you have everything you need to practice crochet you're going to need to learn all of the basic stitches used in any beginner project. Once you have your basic stitches down you will be able to look at any pattern and make all kinds of wonderful goodies. Learning stitches to a beginner can sometimes become confusing and frustrating, I've been there. The biggest tip I can give you is to be patient and to persevere. Don't give up if you mess up a few times, keep trying! Pause your video and go at your own pace. I started videos over and over again until I got the stitches down and practiced a ton until I gained confidence with them. This video from All Free Crochet was a savior for me, it's a pretty basic and it teaches you all about chain stitches, single crochet, double crochet, and triple crochet stitches. If you are more of a learn by reading and pictures type of person then this guide from Knit Simple Magazine is super helpful and it also includes a few stitches that are not included in the video above such as the slip stitch and half double crochet.
One thing that you'll notice when reading patterns, looking at tutorials, ect. is that some terms are different depending on your source. British and Australian terms are simply a little different then the American terms but the stitches are the same. This stitch term rundown from Aberrant Crochet gives you each stitch and the abbreviation in both English and European so you know how to read all kinds of patterns.
I always suggest starting off making a swatch of crochet stitches before starting off any project. This will get you practice and up your confidence level before you dive into a project. After you have made a swatch there are two key steps that you have to take with any crochet project for it to hold up and stay together, these are fastening off and weaving in ends. If you do not learn these two steps you will be bumming later on when you crochet a really cute granny square and then it completely unravels. These steps essentially keep your work together and make sure that during wear and tear they don't loosen in the future.
Now that you've learned the tools, the basics, and the crucial steps to keeping your project intact its time to pick a pattern and crochet something cute. I always suggest that beginners start with something like a scarf or a basic granny stripe blanket. These are both easy projects with few stitches to learn and will help you practice crocheting while you make something functional. If you're looking to make a simple scarf this tutorial from Make and Takes offers picture and video!
If you want to try a basic blanket project you should check out this granny stripe blanket from Attic24, it's best you you try the stripe-a-day method so you don't get overwhelmed just like Matt did (his blog is a glorious crochet wonderland)!
