Are you asking about information on skill levels such as beginner, intermediate, and advanced? Or are you asking for instructions on how to begin to crochet?

If the former, different designers and groups may have different requirements. I do not find such designations very helpful -- I prefer to review the pattern to see if I know how to do the stitches called for, as well as decreasing/increasing. Even if there are one or two things that would be new to me, I consider it a learning experience.

If you are asking about the latter, if looking at the second site that Jane R. suggested doesn't help you, try googling for crochet instructions. You could also try searching on YouTube for videos people may have put up. When beginning a craft, it sometimes takes reading/watching a couple of different approaches to get the idea.
