Hi, my name is Julian. I just learn how to do a blanket stitch. :rofl:
Kidding aside, I'm new to knitting. I would like to learn how to make scarves.
I would also like to make cute animal crochet that I can sell online.

Hi and welcome to the forum. If you have not got one yet, I suggest getting an account with Ravelry. Its free and there are many patterns for scarves that are free also.
:cheers: Tony

Hi Julian welcome to the forum. Tony's suggestion of joining Ravelry is a good one. If you progress to making things to sell online just watch out that you stay within copyright and have the designers permission to sell an item you make. Unless of course you design it yourself and then you decide. Also if you're making toys check out any safety legislation, choking hazards etc. Sorry if I sound a bit of a kill joy, I do wish you well, it's lovely to have a hobby that can turn a profit.

Yes, Joy. I want something that is more of a how-to reference than what to do. I won't copy the design since I'm striving to draw each of mine but a little inspiration won't hurt right? I highly appreciate your advice and I'll make sure not to neglect safety and choking hazard especially when I decide to use materials such as beads. Thank you so much.

One of the best crochet teachers is a lady called Lucy who has a blog called Attic 24. She tends to make blankets rather than animals, so not ideal for you but she does excellent photo tutorials so that would help you learn the techniques needed.

A company called Toft alpacas make adorable little critters (birds animals dinosaurs etc) but they fall more into the toy category so again not exactly what you're after but good inspiration.

Little crochet creatures are often referred to as amigurumi, there's loads of patterns and ideas out there, it's not my forte so I can't give you a specific link.
