Is there an online site to help with learning to crochet? I can do the basic type, which goes around in a circle. I've seen a lot of things like diaper covers I'd like to make that are crocheted.<br><br>
Thanks.

Well, there's <a href="http://www.crochetcabana.com/index.htm" target="_blank">http://www.crochetcabana.com/index.htm</a>. No videos but really excellent pictures and descriptions. That in conjunction with you tube are really good resources for newbie as well as experienced crocheters.

Can I ask what diaper covers you've been looking at? I learned to knit specifically because the selection of crocheted diaper covers was so limited.<br><br>
For crocheting in the round, crochetcabana has a basic tutorial that is pretty good. I suggest getting some acrylic or cotton (so you can rip it out easily) and just try it. It really seems a lot harder than it is.

Heh, that'll teach me for posting when I'm tired. I wrote that I can't crochet basic, but I can.<br><br>
Rootz, thanks for that link, I'll have a good lookee this morning. Cristeen, I have some links on my computer (I'm on my brother's at the moment), and I must have just found the few for some reason that are crocheted.<br><br>
II think this is my nesting thing, I suddenly have these urges to make things. My friend's nesting urge was baking, and she ended up with a ten and a half pound baby so I'd much prefer this! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

If someone started crochethelp.com, they'd make a fortune. Just a thought, if there's any aspiring WAHM crocheters out there... think about how many knitted things have crocheted borders.
