    I’ve just bought the Nana CAL pack & the yarn is fantastic. I have a query – is there a chart or written instructions to go with it? Being new to crochet, I find the videos are a little quick for me.
    Can anyone help??

      Hi Deborah, please, download the pattern here: https://www.katia.com/EN/kits-9678.html
      Here you are some tips to follow the videos:

      1) Lower the volume and activate the subtitles in your language: First, click on the subtitles button (C) and then, in Settings / Subtitles / Select Language
      2) Slow down the video: click Settings / Playback speed / 0.5 – 0.75
      3) Increase the size of the subtitles: click on Settings / Subtitles / Options / Font size 150% – 200%
