Default Reading Crochet Patterns

I have been crocheting for almost a year now, and I only watch YouTube tutorials because i have a hard time reading the patterns. Any suggestions on how to make it easier?

When I teach someone how to read a pattern, I usually retype it for them. I try to break it down into "sub" steps. That way, you are reading then doing, and not trying to read several steps at once or trying to remember where you left off. Once you have had practice reading patterns, you won't need to rewrite them - you will be able to break them down step by step in your mind.

If you would like, you can post a pattern here and I will show you what I mean.

Life is a coin, you can spend it anyway you wish, but you can only spend it once.
