Life isn’t always cupcakes and rainbows, but you can sweeten up any day with this colorful and happy beanie.  This hat pattern provides a choice of rainbows or cupcakes on the band, or, if you’re feeling especially creative, you could do both!  So, brighten a day and celebrate life’s little joys with this Frosted Rainbow.

We are so excited about this fun pattern. It has so many colorful possibilities and it is so happy! This pattern comes with instructions in 6 sizes from infant to adult. It has charts, and photo tutorials, and pictures to make this pattern easy to work up. You can purchase this pattern from either Ravelry or Etsy.

We also have several of these hats ready to ship in our Etsy Shop. Stop by and take a look!

Special thanks to our testers who did a great job and showcase this pattern in a variety of fun colors.

Catching Rays Patterns

Hello everyone!
This post is all about Catching Rays. I don’t know about you, but I love spending time in the sun from spring through fall. In the winter, you can find me snuggled up with a good book with coffee or yarn in hand. Let me show you how you can keep on shining through all the seasons with some crochet fun and fashion. You can find all of the Catching Rays Collection in our Ravelry Shop!

We released the beautiful Catching Rays Circle Bag last month. This is a basic circle bag design that features the Catching Rays motif on the front. It can be worn comfortably on the shoulder or as a crossbody style.

This week we have 2 more patterns coming at you!

The Catching Rays Pumpkin Pattern releases Wednesday! It is an eye catching and unique design created by using the Catching Rays Granny square. This pattern works up quickly & easily. It is sure to add flair to any patch or fall decor.
The Catching Rays Vest pattern is releasing Friday in sizes XXS – 4X. This pattern is a sweet gesture toward days spent soaking up the sun. The use of the Catching Rays Granny square and open stitching creates a whimsical appearance. This lightweight style can be worn casually or dressed up. Try it with or without fringe.

Should you choose to try any of these patterns, please remember to tag us on Facebook or Instagram, record a project on Ravelry, or leave a review on Etsy! Please follow and use the #catchingrayscollection hashtag. We appreciate your feedback and love seeing your version of our designs.

Catching Rays Granny Square

April 29, 2021
by

Throwing it back to last Thursday to when I introduced y’all to my freestyle beachy top project. Several crocheters asked if there was a pattern or if I would create a pattern for the top. Well, I researched and have only found the top for sale, but no pattern. 

I decided to take you all up on the request for a pattern and have begun by creating my own square (to make it even more original). I’ve named it the Catching Rays square. It is super easy and is only 5 rounds. 👏

I hope you’ll enjoy incorporating it into any of your granny square projects. Please tag me if you do! Stay tuned for more details to come on the top pattern.

Xoxo, Rachel
