I think this one looks good
(you have to select the different points of the tutorial in the list to the left.).
It also has instructions on what I find is the hardest part of knitting: Starting. I am so lucky and have a mother who can knit (a few years ago she went manic and knitted tons of socks for us. They're lovely in the winter. She's calmed down with the socks knitting since then, but will still knit new ones if asked to.), so when I decided I want to give my sister a Doctor Who scarf (as worn as Tom Baker as Doctor Who, namely the fourth incarnation of the Doctor.) for Christmas, I knew who to ask. She actually did the start for me, so I couldn't explain it, but that tutorial made sense to me, and *it has pictures* (with one huge knitting needle, so it's easier to see). The knitting itself is pretty easy once you got the hang of it, which happens pretty fast.
The tutorial I linked to has different techniques and types, and tells you what they are used for too, so it shouldn't be too confusing.
I hope this will be of help to you.
