      Crochet Sinister Catdigan

      I am delighted to announce that the Crochet Catdigan pattern is now available to download - on Ravelry or Payhip. click buttons below to see full details

      An intermediate pattern, the catdigan is a top down yoked cardigan with colourwork and ribbing, worked all in one with no sewing up required. The colourwork will be steeked (cut) and the button bands added after. There is an option to add pockets. Although using a lot of uncommon techniques there are photo and video tutorials to help.

      There are 17 sizes. Sizing is unconventional, because the cats colourwork dictates how many multiple of stitches you need. It is measured by cats!  From 73cm to 182cm, 28.4in to 71in

      Tunisian Crochet Kit available, book a 1:1 with Diana (or get a couple of friends together!)

      What My Customers Say

      I absolutely loved learning how to crochet with Diana. Her classes were so relaxed and informal but I learnt so much and have the crochet bug now! I have recommended her to family and friends already, and almost finished my son's new blanket, who was born in between classes with Diana! Thank you Diana for letting me turn up with my newborn in tow to finish off the course.  looking forward to some Christmas crochet makes now.

      About Diana The Designer

      Hi,  My name is Diana, I am a Primary teacher turned crochet addict

      I opened my shop – The Crochet Chain in 2010, it was open for 4 years, and during that time I honed my crochet skills, teaching crochet (and a bit of knitting) to many, many people.  I started designing, and found that I like to make patterns that are easy to follow, and that use a minimum of sewing up!

      I have designed for Women’s Weekly, DMC, King Cole and Lets Knit!  This experience has helped me to hone my designing skills, but I now prefer to sell my patterns directly to my lovely customers!

      I sell my designs and kits online on my own website, on Ravelry, and at Shows.  I run courses at Crates of Wool in Ware, and Missenden Abbey in Buckinghamshire, workshops at Shows with my favourite being Ally Pally.

      When not designing or podcasting, I can be found at many of the wool shows around the country, either exhibiting or visiting!

      Along with my friend Kate, I run the Waltham Abbey Wool Show
