1.Know your yarns. What’s a skein, and how many and in what weight or type do you need? If you aren’t familiar with all the types of yarn that are out there, take a trip to your local yarn or hobby store and check them out. Weight, type, color and softness all matter, depending on the project you decide to tackle.

    1992 Auntie Annies mile a minute is excellent for someone just learning. She has you doing five different stiches.
    You have some great tips also.

    This is an OK list, but I’d edit the hook information. A size G by one manufacturer is not the same as a size G by another. It would be more accurate to discuss actual size–3.75mm, or 5.0mm for example. Additionally, there is nothing in your list that speaks to the importance of guage. Gage is probably one of the most important things a new crocheter can learn to improve his/her projects.
