For me, the easiest way was to watch a ridiculous amount of YouTube tutorials, find a channel that had videos that were easiest for me to understand, go out and grab the recommended yarn and needles/hook from those videos and just copy the presenter.
There will be messes, there will be failed patterns, and there will be frustration initially. But don't be discouraged, we all have to go through that phase, and you'll get there!
