Before Youtube era, the only tutorial you get is either from the shops who sells knitting stuffs, knitting starter packs or 2D pencil drawings on websites. Now that you can search Knitting for Beginners on YouTube, and get about 273 videos. So here I have linked videos for 4 most basic steps - casting on, knit, purl and casting off.
Casting on - all knitting begins when you cast yarn onto your knitting sticks.
Knit - The basics of basics
Purl - the reverse action of knitting.
Casting off - finish your knitting by knitting the yarn off the stick.
Knitting patterns are made of knits and purls. When you knit from start to end, you'll get garter stitch which looks something like this.

If you alternate one row knit and another row of purl, you'll get stockinette stitches like this

My friend made a scarf for her boyfriend, but it's so hot in Malaysia I doubt hubby will ever need one. So I'll be a bit more practical and knit a BAG. When completed I'll sure upload on my blog. (^_^)
