Hello, fellow crocheters and yarn lovers!

To me, crafting has always been an effective alternative to therapy.  After years working in a stressful, unfulfilling career, I decided it was time to give it up for the sake of my health and take up a therapeutic hobby to detox from the corporate grind. It’s been 6 years since I learnt to crochet, and now I’m taking the leap, sharing the knowledge I’ve gained and indulging my creative side by launching Catena!

A blog filled with crochet musings, inspiration, free crochet patterns and more, Catena is written, edited and run by me, craft-addict and self-confessed Crazy Cat Lady, from my cosy living room (a.k.a “studio”) in the UK.

As well as here at my blog, you can also follow my crafting experiments on Instagram and Pinterest.


Please don’t sell my patterns or claim them as your own. You may make items to sell (online or in person) from my patterns but please link back to my blog and provide credit for the pattern.
I encourage you to share my patterns on social media as long as you link back directly to my blog post. Please do not copy/paste any of my patterns under any circumstances.
