About

Catherine Crochets

I’m a crochet designer from south London, UK, and I’m particularly known for my love of modern tapestry crochet. However, I also enjoy many other crochet techniques, including mosaic and overlay crochet.

I crochet almost every day.   I find it relaxing and love the feel of making something with my hands.  I’m inspired by the people I make for, nature and beautiful textiles and objects from around the world. 

I learnt to crochet in 2014, a week or so before my second daughter arrived.  However, after she was born, I didn’t have time to do that much more (too sleep-deprived!) until 2017, when I picked up my hooks and yarn again, and haven’t really put them down since.

Pattern design

I started designing my own patterns in 2019, developing a passion for colour work, and tapestry crochet in particular. My designs are for blankets, cushions, and other home decor items, as well as accessories such as shawls, scarves and hats.

I’ve designed for SirdarHobbii, several issues of Crochet Now magazineWe CrochetCrochet Society, and for a new book called 100 Crochet tiles coming out in April 2022, published by David and Charles. I have also released many patterns independently.

My patterns are available on RavelryEtsy and LoveCrafts.
