Chastity A Crochet Angel Pattern

When you purchase through links on my site, I may earn an affiliate commission.
Here’s how it works.

Pop over to the Furls Blog Hop Post to see ALL the great free patterns that have been shared this year during our Blog Hop Event! My second contribution to the Hop is Chastity, a Crochet Angel Pattern.

Chastity is crocheted with Medium Weight Yarn and a 4 mm (G) hook. Like my other crochet Angels, she does not require stiffening to stand and can be crocheted in only a few short hours.

Furls sent me some luxurious Whims Merino Crochet Yarn to make Chastity. This yarn is a Z-Twist Yarn (you can read more about Z-Twist yarn here) and because of this special twist, my crochet stitches had AMAZING stitch definition!

Options for your Finished Angel

  • Easily stitch the hands together to make your angel ‘pray’ or give her something to hold in her hands.
  • Add hair to her head if you’d like!
  • Stitch a bell under her skirt, or add a ribbon to her back (above her wings) to make her an ornament for your tree.
  • Add a handmade paper (or plastic) cone under her skirt to help her stay in shape on the top of your Christmas Tree.

Add Chastity to your Ravelry Pattern Library here (coming soon!)

Supplies

Difficulty Level

EASY-INTERMEDIATE

Finished Size

6.25 inches tall (not including the halo), 3.5 inches wide when flattened and measuring the width of the skirt

Gauge

Not imperative but if your stitches have spaces between them that you can see through you need to go down a hook size (or two) until you are crocheting a more solid fabric.

You can substitute any yarn and hook for this stitch pattern – just remember when you substitute if your gauge is different, the finished size, and amount of yarn used for your project will also be different.

Notes

  • This project is worked in continuous rounds. You will need to use a stitch marker so you do not lose your place.
  • Do not slip stitch to join at the end of rounds unless specified.
  • When you work the sc2tog decreases work under the front loop only (it makes the stitch less thick).
  • Ch 3 at the beginning of a round counts as 1 dc.
  • Do not work into slip stitches unless specified.

Crocheted Angel – Chastity

Chastity a Crochet Angel Pattern

You are beginning at the top of the Angel’s head and working in continuous rounds to the base of the dress, all in one piece.

Using your 4 mm (G) hook (or size required for gauge) and leaving an 8-10 inch yarn tail:

R1: Work 6 sc in a DMR. [6 sc]

R2: 2 sc in each sc around. [12 sc]

R3: *2 sc in the next st, 1 sc in the next st**. Rep from * to ** around. [18 sc]

R4-R6: 1 sc in each st around. [18 sc]

R7: *Sc2tog over the next 2 sts, 1 sc in the next st**. Rep from * to ** around. [12 sc]

I recommend you firmly stuff the head at this point.

R8: Sc2tog around. [6 sc]

R9: 1 FPsc in each st around. [6 FPsc]

R10: 1 sc and 1 FPsc in each st around. [6 sc, 6 FPsc]

R11: 1 sc in the first st, 2 sc in the next st, 1 sc in each of the next 5 sts, 2 sc in the next st, 1 sc in each of the next 4 sts. [14 sc]

R12: 1 sc in the first st, ch 3, sk 2 sts, 1 sc in each of the next 5 sts, ch 3, sk 2 sts, 1 sc in each of the next 4 sts. [10 sc, 2 ch3sp]

R13: 1 sc in the first st, 1 sc in the bl of each of the next 3 chs, 1 sc in each of the next 5 sts, 1 sc in the bl of each of the next 3 chs, 1 sc in each of the next 4 sts [16 sc]

R14-R15: 1 sc in each st around [16 sc]

R16: 1 BPsc in each st around. [16 BPsc]

R17: *(1 sc and 1 dc) in the next st, 1 sc in the next st, 1 dc in the next st**. Rep from * to ** 5 times. (1 sc and 1 dc) in the last st.  [11 sc and 11 dc]

R18-R19: *1 sc in the next st, 1 dc in the next st**. Rep from * to ** around.  [11 sc and 11 dc]

R20: (1 sc and 1 dc) in each of the first 2 sts. *1 sc in the next st, 1 dc in the next st**. Rep from * to ** around. [12 sc and 12 dc]

R21-R22: *1 sc in the next st, 1 dc in the next st**. Rep from * to ** around. [12 sc and 12 dc]

R23: (1 sc and 1 dc) in each of the first 2 sts. *1 sc in the next st, 1 dc in the next st**. Rep from * to ** around. [13 sc and 13 dc]

R24-R25: *1 sc in the next st, 1 dc in the next st**. Rep from * to ** around. [13 sc and 13 dc]

R26: (1 sc and 1 dc) in each of the first 2 sts. *1 sc in the next st, 1 dc in the next st**. Rep from * to ** around. [14 sc and 14 dc]

R27-R28: *1 sc in the next st, 1 dc in the next st**. Rep from * to ** around. [14 sc and 14 dc]

R29: 1 FPsc in each st around. Finish off with an invisible join and weave in ends. [14 sc and 14 dc]

Arms

Make 1.

The arm is created in one piece; worked flat and then seamed on the long edges with a slip stitch seam. Once the arm is complete you thread it through the openings on either side of the angel’s body, being sure to keep an equal amount of “arm” on each side. You can whipstitch these in place if you wish – I did not. I simply used 2 small stitches to attach the hands together in a “prayer” pose.

R1: Ch 21, beg in 2nd ch from hook and work 1 sc in each across, ch 1, turn [20]

R2: 1 sc in each st across, ch 1, turn [20]

Fold the rectangle in half and seam the long edges using a slip stitch seam. Finish off and weave in any remaining ends.

Wings

Make 2.

R1: Work ch 3 (counts as 1 dc), 2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc in a DMR. Turn. [5 dc, ch2sp]

R2: Ch 4 (counts as 1 tr) and 2 tr in the first st, 2 dc in the next st, 3 hdc in the ch2sp, 1 hdc in the next st, 1 sl st in each of the next 2 sts. Ch 1, turn. [3 tr, 2 dc, 4 hdc, 2 sl st]

R3: Sk the first sl st, 1 sc in each of the next 5 sts, 1 hdc in the next st, 1 dc in each of the next 2 sts, 2 tr in the next st and 1 dtr in the next st, (the ch 4 at the beg of R2). Ch 1, turn. [1 dtr, 2 tr, 2 dc, 1 hdc, 5 sc]

R4: 1 sl st in each st and around the row edge back to the DMR. Finish off. [15 sl st]

To attach the wings use a whip stitch and position them in the center at the base of her neck.

Halo

The Halo is made using a 2.25 mm (B) hook and Gold (or silver) Bowdabra Bow Wire.

What is Bowdabra Bow Wire?  This is a thin piece of wire wrapped in gold metallic thread. I found mine at Michael’s in the ribbon section. It can stand on its own which is why I like it – and it is much thinner than pipe-cleaner (which was what I had been considering).

I crocheted the halo like this:

Ch 20, finish off leaving a tail of the bow wire. Now take the tail and thread it through the 7th chain from the opposite end. This will create the halo loop. Now twist (like a twist-tie) the two remaining ends together to make it straight and stiff. Take that one end (since you twisted them together you have one wire now) and thread it through the back of the angel’s head and down to the base of the neck before cutting off any of the excess wire. If you want to dab a bit of fabric glue in there to keep it in place you can.

The image below is for my Crochet Angels Pattern but the Halo design is the same:

  1. Thanks for your wonderful angles. I am crocheting as I find them. Lovely work u do.

  2. I love your angel patterns. I have made them all. Look forward to each new one. Thank you so much

  3. Hi Kristy,

    You are very welcome 🙂 I’m happy it helped and has come in useful. It took me a couple tries to get it to work for me but once you get the ‘swing of it’ (I feel like I’m swinging my hook under the second stitch loop lol) it became easier to do. Have a lovely week, Rhondda

  4. BTW, I want to thank you for the hint about sc2tog. I use it all the time now. Works beautifully! (And if I’ve said it before, thanks again. LOL)

  5. Para terminar el año está muy bonito el ángel, gracias por compartir 💖

  6. Hi Kristy, This sounds like a great idea for rounding the hands 🙂 Thank you for sharing it. Wishing you the best, Rhondda

  7. Rhonda,
    I have a suggestion for you to try. I made the first row of the arm by sc into the back bump on the chain (because I hate trying to sc into it at the end or sl st into it), and on second and third rows stopped one short of the end, which made the ends rounder. I slip stitched into outside loops to sew it together. That seemed to make it somewhat rounder.

  8. Thank you Kristy! I’m so happy you like her 🙂 The yarn I used was a bit lighter weight than I usually work with so it could be why she ended up a little taller if you were using Medium Weight (Super Saver). Thank you for making my Angels 🙂 Best wishes, Rhondda

  9. Oh, my, this is absolutely one of my favorites! Oddly enough, mine turned out quite tall. Maybe I need to go down a hook size. But then I like having different sizes. Thank you for your sweet angel patterns.
