Colour Crafter to Catona conversion

Have you found a pattern in Scheepjes Colour Crafter that you like, but do you want to make it in Scheepjes Catona? Then you're in luck! On multiple occasions I've created a design in both yarns - to make it easier on myself, I put together a master table that shows which colours match. You'll find the table below.

Please note that I've gone by the actual colour samples, instead of using only photos online. That being said, this table is just a guideline to help you pick the right colours for your project.

Catona and Colour Crafter

Catona

Catona is a fingering-weight cotton yarn. It's mercerized, which means that it has vibrant colours and a lustrous shine to the thread. It's a great choice for projects that need to be able to withstand some wear and tear, such as potholders, blankets and pillows (hello jeans buttock buttons).

The thread is tightly plied, so that means that it won't split easily. Perfect for beginning and advanced crocheters alike! Catona comes in 10g, 25g, 50g and in some cases even 100g balls. On a 50g ball, there's 125m of yarn - plenty for a colourful project.

Colour Crafter

Colour Crafter is a DK-weight, premium acrylic yarn. The premium acrylic means that it's soft to the touch, almost like a natural yarn. It's also anti-pilling, meaning that it won't form little pills as easily as its non-pilling counterparts. Acrylic is easy to care for as you can simply chuck it in the washer without any fears of shrinking or colour bleeds.

There is 300m of yarn on a 100g ball, making it an affordable and sensible choice for big projects such as blankets or home decor.

I use both yarns frequently. With so many shades to choose from and budget-friendly yardages, they are really my go-to choices for any project!

Conversion table

For this table, I used the Colour Crafter as base yarn and chose matching Catona shades. If you are looking for the other way around (Catona as base yarn and matching Colour Crafter shades), check out this table. Please note that there are more Catona shades (109) than Colour Crafter (93). Even so, you'll find that some Catona Colours match two or more shades of Colour Crafter.
