    If you can Single crochet, increase and decrease you can crochet longies. Try Ravelry for good patterns, and dont hesitate to ask in the forums here for help.

    I can crochet a scarf, is that enough knowledge to try longies?

    Everyone's things look amazing!
    You can do it! I would start by buying a good pattern (There are several for crochet longies and Cristi might be able to help point you in the right direction. I have personally seen several of these patterns and they are adorable. . .) or if you want to learn to knit, try knittinghelp.com. I would start with just a basic dishcloth (cast on 25 stitches, knit every row or knit one row, turn over and purl the next.) I mostly use the thumb method for casting on and knit in 'continental' style. I think it feels the most natural after crocheting for years, but every person is different. Don't be intimidated and if you get stuck, feel free to ask for help. That is a lot of us got started.

    I am also a continental knitter. I can not knit the other way.

    I can single crochet, but I don't know what increase and decrease is! And I've looked at some free online patterns and they make my head spin! I have sort of figured some of it out, but it still confuses me! I don't know what a slip chain is, etc. I've tried looking it up, but I still find it confusing!

    I personally think I'd poke an eyeball out if I tried to learn how to knit! Maybe after I get the crochet thing down I can try!

    Increase - simply put 2 single crochets into the 1 stitch, now you have increased by 1.

    Decrease - put your yarn in the stitch, draw up your yarn, then before you pull your yarn through the 2 loops, draw up through the next stitch, then pull your yarn through all three loops on your hook. (you make 2 stitches into 1 this way)

    Now you have decreased. The thing is a lot of the time while you are doing it, the project will look funky, but once you finish it pulls together. try not to get frusterated. (my biggest problem with knitting)

    See, I knew Cristi would help! She has a good way of explaining things so they make sense.

    I second her statement that things look a little strange in the middle of the project. This happens to me sometimes, especially if there is any seaming to be done.

    It is my own pattern, I designed it from a combination of things I like and did not like about my brand name OS diapers.

    wow! They look great. Hmmm. . . I may have to try one. I am not usually a big one-size fan but those are super cute. Ian is just so skinny it is hard for me to get a good fit in a OS. . .
