If you look at the Glossary, most of the abbreviations used in pattern are there, many of them have videos. When a pattern says to k6, k2tog, YO, k2 p2, k2, YO, ssk, k6 for example, you would knit the first 6 sts, knit the next 2 together, make a yarnover, knit 2 sts, purl 2 sts, knit 2 stitches, yarn over again and end with knit 6 sts.

If there's something you'd like to try, let us know what it is and what you don't understand about it. It's not legal to copy and paste a whole pattern here, but a couple of rows or a link to the pattern is okay.

I have been knitting now for two years and found that I was able to benefit tremendously from the book 'Knitting for Dummies'.
And the videos on this site are fantastic!
And the moderators and other members are so friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.
If you have a particular pattern/project in mind, I'd be happy to go over some of it with you too.

I learned a lot from watching videos, reading the forum and practicing things I learned.

Sometime videos and and book aren't enough and if you're like me (knitting books complicate the life out of me) I would look for a knitting group in your area. check with your LYS about stitch-n-bitch groups in your area or maybe they even host one,they're usually held once a week. I swear to bob, I would've been stuck on scarves if it weren't for my stitch-n-bitch ladies. Best of luck

For help with basics, people at the LYS may be good sources. I read a post from someone who went to hers and asked about a not so basic technique and they told her it was too advanced for her and to use a simpler pattern. Of course she got several helpful responses at ravelry, and it wasn't all that advanced. Not everyone at a LYS may be helpful.
