Same way as anything else, break it into steps. Step 1, how to hold the yarn through your fingers. Show him, have him sit with you each with a hook and yarn. Step 2, how to move the right hand. Do each step till he gets it, no point in going forward till he knows. Eventually, he will make a short chain and then learn singles. A teddy's scarf is a good thing to start with. Just break it right down.

I have no idea how to teach DS - he's very keen to learn but I find it hard to explain. I've googled & demonstrated but does anyone know of a good way to teach a child how to crochet? Or any good websites or books? TIA
