About Diana The Author

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

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.
