Decorate your home with this beautiful Country Sun Catcher!
This Country Sun Catcher is easy to work and made with a simple granny circle. In fact, you may recognize this granny circle from the Granny Circle Shoulder Bag Crochet Pattern!
After working the two sides of the bag, I had held one up for my husband to see and we immediately thought to ourselves it would look gorgeous hanging on a wall!
All it took was a little modification and a 12 inch macrame ring.

After working the Granny circle, you will place it inside the macrame ring and then work a round of single crochet over the ring and into the granny circle. Sounds simple, doesn’t it?
I will show you exactly how to make the granny circle and attach the ring in the full video tutorial below
I worked this bag using a 100% cotton yarn by Lion Brand Yarns. Cotton holds its shape quite well, especially when it comes to wear and tear. I mentioned about that I used five different colours, but you may use more or less!
For a crochet hook, I used a 5 mm and you will see me using a Clover Armor hook in the full video tutorial below.
