Crochet Angel Eden Pattern
Eden, is my nineteenth crochet Angel pattern. This Angel crochet pattern is available for free in my post below. I have added a full-length video tutorial on YouTube for Eden and updated her wing pattern to have a left and right wing. I hope you love these additions!
Crochet Angel Eden Pattern
Eden 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.
This crochet Angel should take about 1 hour and 30 minutes to make. You will need 40 g (89 yards) of Medium Weight Yarn  for this project.
You can see my other 18 free crochet Angel patterns here.
I hope you love Eden as much as I do!

- 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.

- 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.+

Crochet Angel Eden Arms
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.
Crochet Angel Eden Wings
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]

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:
Crochet Angel Eden 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 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.
Finishing Instructions for Angel Eden
- 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.

Hi. Do you sell printable versions of your patterns?
Most welcome Nancy 🙂
Love all of your angels. I have made each one and given several as gifts to friends and they all love them too. I look forward to your new ones each year. Thank you for the patterns.
Thank you so much Jill ♥
I just want to say that I absolutely LOVE all of your angel patterns. They are probably my favorite patterns of all. All so beautiful and well written. Thank you for sharing them with me. Jill Dupre
Hi Linda, Yeah! I’m happy to hear that she worked out ok ♥ Thank you for letting me know 🙂 Have a wonderful weekend, Rhondda
A special double thank you for all of your help, just fiinished Eden and she came out beautiful. Your instructions were perfect !
Thank you again
Thank you Rhondda,
I am going to start all over again and see how it comes out.
Hi Linda, When you work the bpsc it will push the previous round out and forward slightly which creates the tiered look and it makes the next round that you work into the bpsc round start a bit behind (sort of inside the previous skirt rounds) R26. Are you maybe working into R26 accidentally after you do R27? Try to find the top 2 loops of one of the bpsc stitches in R27, they should be slightly behind (towards the inside of the skirt). R28 is worked into those loops which is what creates the tiered look for the skirt. Hope this helps! Rhondda
Starting row 27 with the bpsc does it mean that you have to kinda roll up to work the following rows going forward? I don’t know if I am explaining it correctly but I had continued without rolling it up and does not seem to look right? Looks like just one long skirt?
You are very welcome Linda ♥
Thank you so much for getting me on track with that slip stitch problem that I was having. I am having no problem now at all. And thank you for all of these angel patterns ,everyone is beautiful.
Hi Linda, I’m so happy to hear this ♥ Happy New Year! Rhondda
Hi Linda, you make the first sc in the same stitch you just slip stitched into to join. That is why you need to make that slip stitch tightly because you will also be working the sc into it to begin the next round. Hope this helps, Rhondda
At then end of round 16 I did sl st to the first sc to join and did the ch 1. It is starting row 17 is where I am getting confused as to where to put the first sc in 17? .
Thank you Rhondda,
This helps and I just want to tell you that I made several of your angels for Christmas gifts. My family members loved them so much they are looking for more! So thank you again for your help and have a Happy New Year
Hi Linda, The slip stitch is a joining stitch and as such we will not be counting it as a stitch, nor will we be working into it. You can make it super tight (so it is small), or mark it with a stitch marker to remind yourself not to work into it. For Row 17 you will still work into that first stitch that you slip stitched to join into (so pretend the slip stitch is not there). Hope this helps! Rhondda
You are very welcome Anne ♥
On row 16 when you come to the end slip stitch in the first sc and chain 1. So starting row 17 do I work into that slip stitch that has the chain 1? ?
I have just finished making Eden, another beautiful Angel. I love that you create an Angel each year and share your patterns. Thank you so much, your kindness is greatly appreciated. Anne
Thank you for another lovely angel, and thank you for all your wonderful patterns. I wish you and your family a happy Christmas and a healthy, peaceful and enjoyable 2022. A special wish for your own health problems to be under control. Best wishes Rita
Thank you 🙂
I really love the tiered skirt of this angel, and that you give 4 wings option! I am hoping to make one your angels before the end of the year because they are all so pretty.
