Crochet Angel Ornament Pattern

The pattern I have designed for you today is for a tabletop crochet angel ornament.

You can add a piece of ribbon easily to her back (above her wings) to make her into a Christmas Ornament for your tree and even add a bell beneath her skirt!

My Crochet Angel is crocheted in Red Heart Super Saver (medium weight) yarn; beginning at the top her head and worked in continuous rounds to the base of her skirt.

You will add the sleeves to the dress next and then make the wings, optional arms and halo.

This Angel stands on her own and she does not need to be ‘stiffened’.

Her halo is designed with a thin bow wire I found at Michaels (our local craft store) so it holds its shape and stays in place easily.

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).
  • Options – 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.

Now take one yarn end and feed it on a yarn needle. Weave the needle in and out of the inside stitches on the wing like this:

Pull the yarn needle through completely and pull snugly (to cinch the inside more tightly together) and weave back through again to secure the yarn end. Finish off. Repeat for the second wing.

Halo

The halo is the only part of this project to use a different hook and thread. Please use the 2.25 mm (B) hook and the Gold 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 it’s own which is why I like it – and it is much thinner than pipecleaner (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.

  1. What does the ‘bl’ stand for in the 4th row directions of the wing? Slip stitch in each bl.
    I love these angel patterns, thank you for sharing.

  2. Hi, I love this angel! It’s absolutely beautiful, however, I think I found a little mistake in the pattern. At the very end of the body/skirt it says to just FPSC, but if you do that without joining with a sl-st you end up with the skirt rolled inwards. It’s quite straight if you sl-st and then ch. 1, but the best effect and the closest to the one in the photo is when you slip stitch and do not chain one before doing a round of FPSC.
    Merry Christmas 🙂

  3. I’m so happy you like the pattern Karen! and that your daughter loves them too ♥ Best wishes, Rhondda

  4. Thanks for this super cute pattern, just made 2 angels in different sizes. My daughter is in love with them😊.

    Kind regards,

    Karen

  5. Hi Gloria 🙂 I’m so happy you love making my angels ♥ Thank you for leaving me such a wonderful comment on my blog too. Much love, Rhondda

  6. These angel patterns are so easy and beautiful! I did 24 for Christmas gifts and have already made another 12 and counting. I cannot thank you enough for sharing your gift with us. God bless you tremendously. Grace, Peace, Love, Fortitude, Joy, Guardian, Charity, Temperance, Patience, Christmas 2017 and little angel are the ones I’ve made so far. Will try them all…I particularly love Grace,Joy and Love but looovee them all.
    I’m from Jamaica!

  7. Your pattern for this angel is great! I crocheted her and she is beautiful!! Thank you so much for sharing!!

  8. Hi Cindy, I think maybe you are working around the inside of the skirt instead of around the outside. If you look at the Angel with her head down and her skirt up like a cup or a bowl, you will be working on the outside of the cup, not the inside of the cup where you put the liquid. If that makes sense? I’m thinking you may have put it down and picked it up and started working inside the ‘cup’ accidentally – which would make the post stitches who on the inside instead of the outside. I don’t have a video for this yet but plan to film one this year. I have been unwell since December so haven’t been doing any videos at the moment. Once I’m back on my feet I will get to them 🙂 All the best, Rhondda

  9. Hello,
    I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong. I’m when I do the FPDC the posts are on the inside. Mine doesn’t look at all like yours. Do you have a video tutorial? Or can you guess what I’m doing wrong?

  10. Hi Mary Lou, I’m so happy the angel turned out 🙂 thank you for trying the pattern and for letting me know it was easy to follow! I prefer the other wings too 🙂 Have a lovely New Year! Rhondda

  11. I just made this little angel. I added baby blue to complete the last round and a blue chain around the neck, hanging down the front on both sides. Needed to make it for a baby boy. Also used the wings from your other angels as a personal preference….HE turned out beautiful!
    Thank you so much for sharing your time and talent with us.

  12. Hi Jessica, I don’t have a video for this Angel yet. You will work the first dc in the same stitch as the one you slip stitched into. Hope this helps! Rhondda

  13. Hi Jessica, At the beginning of R1: Ch 7, work 1 dc in the 5th ch from the hook (the 4 skipped chs count as 1 dc, ch 1). At the end of the row 2, R1 is beneath it and that initial ch 7 is beneath it. You need to dc into the third chain in that initial chain 7 from Row 1. It means you need to count up to the 3rd chain you worked (at the beginning of the row – within that ch 7)and work the dc in that third chain. Hope this helps! I haven’t actually done a video for this angel yet. It is on my list to do this year 🙂 All the best, Rhondda

  14. Hi, i don’t know why but I can’t find the video to this Angel anymore and I don’t understand the wings part

    For the end of the R2 for the wings, how do I do the “1dc in the top of the 3rd ch?”
    I don’t understand which is the 3rd ch?

    R2: Ch 5 (counts as 1 dc, ch 2), 1 dc in the ch1sp, ch 2, 1 dc in the next ch1sp, ch 2, 1 dc in the final ch1sp, ch 2, 1 dc in the top of the 3rd ch [5 dc, 4 ch2sp]

  15. Hi, I was trying to make this Angel and when I got to round 15, I couldn’t understand where the 1st DC was (after the ch 3) so I watched your video but somehow, I think your video instruction is different from the written one?

  16. Hi Julie, I don’t have one yet but I think I can try to film one this week if you can wait to do the pattern for a couple days. Hope this helps, Rhondda

  17. Hello, I’m new to crochet and work better with hands on instructions. Do you have a video tutorial on this angel. I have had to pull mine out about 2 dozen times:(. Please help.

  18. Hi Alvina, They don’t take that much time really. You can have one complete in about 2 to 2.5 hours I think. I am not a very fast crocheter either. I have to really make myself focus to crochet quickly and I prefer to crochet while I watch tv and relax so it takes me a bit longer than most. Have a lovely day, Rhondda

  19. How long does it take to make one of these angels? I’m not a fast crocheter
    Thank you for the beautiful pattern

  20. I’m so happy you enjoyed making the angel 🙂 Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment too! Have a lovely weekend, Rhondda

  21. Great pattern. Loved making the angel and it worked out very well even though I am still a novice crocheter. Thanks very much for sharing and putting so many free patterns on your website, it is a pleasure to browse through and come up with ideas for gifts or projects.

  22. Thanks for making this pattern! It’s very cute, and the way you did the arms inside the sleeves was quite clever!

  23. Hi Julie, Thank you 🙂 It does do well in smaller yarn and hook variations – I actually tried making it in Cotton 10 Thread a month ago and it turns out super small and cute – I’m just not that ‘great’ with thread so I find it a bit more difficult to manage with my hands. Perhaps I just need more practise! I hope yours turns out exactly the way you want it to! All the best, Rhondda

  24. I happened on this looking for crochet angel patterns. I was looking for something to top my crocheted Christmas tree, and this looked perfect, except it would be too tall done in RHSS, so I have some white baby yarn and 2.50mm hook and I’m seeing if that will make it shorter.

    It’s a beautiful pattern,

  25. Thank you so much for this lovely little angel pattern. I have been having great fun adding little touches in various combinations (colored wings, a matching hem color and sleeve hem, different colored heads to reflect different ethnicities and gorgeous curly hair…). Truly, such a wonderful pattern to play with!

  26. thanks a lot for the pattern it realy works wonderfoul i will make some for christmas greetings from kos island greece dina

  27. Very welcome 🙂 Let me know if you have any questions when you are crocheting her! All the best, Rhondda

  28. Thanks for posting this beautiful angel pattern

  29. Hi Kimberley, Thank you 🙂 You may sell anything you crochet from any of my patterns. I only ask if someone asks for the pattern can you please refer them to my blog post for it? Checking you out at Instagram 🙂 Thank you again for your kind words and have a lovely weekend, Rhondda

  30. Hi! First off, your patterns have been so helpful to me while I was teaching myself to crochet. The way you write patterns is so easy to follow! I’ve now been crocheting for about 2 years and people have been telling me to start an etsy page. After much consideration I’m finally doing it! One of the all time favorite things that I’ve made is this angel. I’ve made a couple now and I wanted to put a finished product on my etsy. I didn’t see anything saying whether I could or could not, so I wanted to ask your permission first. I would say that it’s your design, of course. If not, that’s no problem at all! 🙂 Keep up the awesome work. I love seeing some of your creations! And if you’d like to see the finished product of the angel I made, find me on instagram #thecrochetbarista

  31. Thank you Doni! I’m so pleased you like her 🙂 I have a new one coming out this week for a little angel too 🙂 she is my children’s favorite so far (they keep trying to take her to play with lol have fun making some 🙂 All the best, Rhondda

  32. This is an adorable little angel. She is exactly what I was looking for to make some ornaments for my nephew’s little girls to hang on their tree. Excellent tutorial, so easy to follow and the pictures are great! Thanks a bunch!

  33. Hi Darlene, I whipstitched the wings to the back of the Angel. I will try to add a photo soon 🙂 Thank you for letting me know this was missing! Rhondda

  34. I started the angel but do not see any instructions for attaching the wings?!

  35. Is it to late for me to join the Christmas Cal? If not where do I go to to catch up? Thank you.

  36. I have to pin and make this my sister corner tree she LOVES Angels thanks for the pattern. I hope I’m skilled enough to make it for her.
