My Eden Angel Pattern is crocheted in one piece from the top of her head to the base of her skirt. Her arm is crocheted separately and inserted through the armholes of her dress. Her wings are crocheted and added to the back of body and the halo is crocheted with bow wire before being inserted into the stitches at the back of her head. In total this project should take about an hour for you and it only uses 40 g (89 yards) of Medium Weight Yarn .

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.
I have chosen to use Wing Design 4 for Eden. Here are all four Wing Design Options which can be used interchangeably with my Angel Designs.
This Angel 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.

Single Crochet Two Together – I recommend you only go under the front loop while doing the sc2tog for this project|
- 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 a slip stitch is used to join at the end of a round, make the slip stitch tightly.
- When you work the sc2tog decreases work under the front loop only (it makes the stitch less thick).
- Do not work into slip stitches unless specified.
- The back bar (or third loop) of the stitch is the loop that falls immediately behind and below the back loop of the hdc stitch. Here is an example from my All Aflutter Afghan Square if you would like a visual.
- Ch 1 or Ch 2 at the end of the round does not count as a stitch unless specified. This means you do not work into it.+
- Make your Ravelry Project Pages here
- 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.

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 26, beg in 2nd ch from hook and work 1 sc in each across, ch 1, turn 
R2: 1 sc in each st across, ch 1, turn 
Fold the rectangle in half (along row 2) and seam the long edges using a slip stitch seam. Finish off.
R1: Work ch 3 (counts as 1 dc), 2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc in a DMR. Turn. [5 dc, ch2sp]

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 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: Ch 4, sk the first st, 1 sl st in the next st. *Ch 4, 1 sl st in the next st**. Work from * to ** across making your last sl st in the first sc of R3. Finish off. [10 ch4sp, 10 sl st]
Sew the wings in place. For Eden, I joined the base of the wings using a single stitch (before weaving in ends) and attached them to the stitch beneath her neck. Here is an image for placement:
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 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.
Weave in any remaining ends securely.
Insert the arm through the holes on each side of the dress.
Insert the halo through the back stitches of the head.
Decorate with glitter, bells or sequins or place a tea light under her skirt (or a bell) and add a hanging tie to make her an ornament.
