Grace features a brand-new wing design! If you prefer one of the other wing designs you can access the patterns here:
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.
Grace has a streamlined and simple skirt with a ruffled hem.
This skirt design is like a blank canvas. You can easily add embroidered stitches or cross stitches to her skirt if you would like to add some color or personal touches.
For the next 36 hours you can get a PDF copy of Grace from my Ravelry Shop, for free

- HALO: Bowdabra Bow Wire – Color Gold and 2.25 mm (B) crochet hook
6 inches tall (not including the halo), 5.25 inches wide when standing and measuring the diameter of the skirt
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.

Helpful Video Tutorials
I demonstrated how to make one of my other Crochet Angel Patterns (Patience) in a full length YouTube Video Pattern Tutorial. You can view the video tutorial for the arms, wings pattern 2 and halo here:
- 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).
- The arm, wings and halo are worked in rows.
- 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.

Save this Pattern to your Ravelry Favorites here
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):
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-R16: 1 sc in each st around. [16 sc]
R17: 1 sc in the back loop of each st around. [16 sc]
R18: *2 sc in the next st, 1 sc in each of the next 3 sts**. Rep from * to ** around. [20 sc]
R19: 1 sc in each st around. [20 sc]
R20: *2 sc in the next st, 1 sc in each of the next 4 sts**. Rep from * to ** around. [24 sc]
R21: 1 sc in each st around. [24 sc]
R22: *2 sc in the next st, 1 sc in each of the next 5 sts**. Rep from * to ** around. [28 sc]
R23: 1 sc in each st around. [28 sc]
R24: *2 sc in the next st, 1 sc in each of the next 6 sts**. Rep from * to ** around. [32 sc]
R25: 1 sc in each st around. [32 sc]
R26: *2 sc in the next st, 1 sc in each of the next 7 sts**. Rep from * to ** around. [36 sc]
R27: 1 sc in each st around. [36 sc]
R28: *2 sc in the next st, 1 sc in each of the next 8 sts**. Rep from * to ** around. [40 sc]
R29: 1 sc in each st around. [40 sc]
R30: 1 hdc in the back loop of each st around. [40 hdc]
R31: 1 BPsc in each st around. Finish off. [40 BPsc]
R32: Rejoin your yarn in any rem front loop from R29 with a sl st. Ch 3 (counts as 1 dc) and 2 more dc in the same front loop. 3 dc in each rem front loop around. Finish off. [120 dc]
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 
R2: 1 sc in each st across, ch 1, turn 
R3: Rep R2, ch 1, turn 
Fold the rectangle in half (along row 2) and seam the long edges using a slip stitch seam. Finish off and weave in any remaining ends.
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, sk the last 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 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.
The image below is for my Crochet Angels Pattern but the Halo design is the same:
Hi Kendal, You can find all my available Angel Patterns here: https://oombawkadesigncrochet.com/category/crochet-patterns-angels/
I think the next closest one to her (with the streamlined skirt and wings) is Chastity. My Little Crochet Angel is tinier and has a streamlined skirt but different wings.
Hi, Rhondda I was wondering if you have another angel that you did that is close to this one? i took a picture of one i did and i am so sure it was by you. i have been searching all over for it and can not find it. can you help me please? thank you so much, i love making your angels, i add colors to the bottom for people with a colored heart as well in rememberance of a loved one. looking forward to hearing from you thanks Beth
Thank you for the iinfo, I was going to order the chunky yarn but I cannot find it , most sites say unavailable. If in the future I do though I will let you know how it comes out. I am going to start another pattern this time it will be Holly and I will give this one to my sister who loves your angels. Take care and thank you again
Hi Linda, you can go up to a heavier weight yarn – it will make her bigger and heavier. I’m not sure how that will effect her ability to stand though. If her weight will pull her down and make the skirt fold. I’d have to redesign the pattern to make it larger with more stitches as there isn’t a simple math way to do it without starting from the beginning and making her larger. If you do try the heavier weight please let me know how it goes 🙂 I’m happy you have enjoyed my Angel patterns ♥ thank you for telling me 🙂 R
Is there any way to enlarge this pattern to make this angel bigger? I know red heart has a 5 weight but I love this pattern and didn’t know if I could add stitiches?
I made 20 angels this past Christmas and gave away as gifts. They are all beautiful and a joy to make. Thank you for these patterns , they are so beautiful.
Hi Sharon, Sometimes this has happened when I’m designing and trying a new kind of white yarn for them too. If the yarn is too soft then the post stitches aren’t as stiff and the neck wobbles a bit. I have cut a piece of a plastic drinking straw and filled it with a bit of stuffing and inserted it into the neck to stiffen it on one project (because I didn’t want to redo the whole Angel and it and was being given as a gift the next day). It worked for me that time but I didn’t use that yarn again because of that softness problem I had experienced. You could also use a bit of clear fishing line and crochet over it for the neck section to thicken up that area if you don’t want to switch up the yarn – or make the Angel with a smaller hook size (but that would need to be done for the whole project to make the shape and size consistent). I hope this helps a bit. A smaller hook might be the simplest option if you are just starting one 🙂 Wishing you the very best, Rhondda
I love your angel patterns! I’m attempting to make several different angels as gifts for family and friends. I am struggling with their heads bobbling and wonder if there’s something I need to do to differently with the neck section?
Hi Linda, Yes, you close the ring after you complete R1 of the wing, but you do not join the edges of R1 you turn and work back across as a row.
On the dmr are you suppose to close up the loop after row 1? Getting a little confused on the wing?
Hi Carolyn 🙂 Actually I do have one that I am working on that I am hoping will be suitable as a tree-top Angel. I have a deadline this weekend so I have to finish that first but I hope to have her finished next week. Hopefully earlier rather than later in the week 🙂 I’m really happy you like my Angel patterns 🙂 Wishing you the best, Rhondda
I love your angel patterns. I would like to know if you could make one larger for a tree topper. I did make grace for my tree topper and she is beautiful, but wondered if you have one that is larger all over for a larger tree. thank you for your patterns.
Thank you Freda ♥ I hope you stay safe too and are able to enjoy a happy holiday. Wishing you the very best, Rhondda PS I just released a new Angel Pattern tonight – Fortitude – here’s the link: https://oombawkadesigncrochet.com/fortitude-a-crochet-angel-pattern/ *Virtual Hug*
Thank you for your patterns, It’s hard not sharing with family & I send pictures after I make one. It maybe little early but Happy Holidays & stay safe.
Hi Carolyn, I’m so happy you want to make the Angels ! I’m hoping to release a couple new ones this fall so stay tuned! Best wishes for a wonderful fall and winter. Rhondda
Every Christmas I see your beautiful angel patterns and think I’m going to have time to get them done for gifts. Well, this year I am going to make it happen! So thankful that you are generous enough to share All of your wonderful patterns! Have a few close friends that I would like to get some small items made for besides a purchased gift, and these will be perfect!
Hi Deanna, There was a mistake! I apologize! It should read: 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, sk the last st (the ch 4 at the beg of R2). Ch 1, turn. [1 dtr, 2 tr, 2 dc, 1 hdc, 5 sc]
Thank you for contacting me to let me know! All the best, Rhondda
hello I’m really loving the angel patterns this will be my third one 🙂
I’m a beginner so for the wings ROW3 is the part I’m stuck in, i feel like I’m missing something
am i suppose to repeat (2 tr and 1 dtr) in the next st, in more than one stitch? before i sk the last st (the ch 4 at the beg of R2)
or any instructions before that
im sorry i can not explain myself well :/
thank you for any help if you can understand this haha
Upon closer inspection of the pictures, I think it just depends upon how the ruffle lays. Kind of reminds me of the dress debate, “blue and black or white and gold”? Haha! Thanks, Rhonda.
Hi Mary Lou, The Angel in the photos should be Grace. I did have a different set of wings displayed in the one image but I don’t think I had another Angel skirt pictured. You can see all my Angels here: https://oombawkadesigncrochet.com/category/crochet-patterns-angels/ I’m happy you like making them! Have a lovely week, Rhondda
Another beautiful angel! I’ve made her twice so far…. I noticed that the pictures show an alternate ruffle on the bottom. Very striking. How is that one made?
Thank you for sharing your talents with us. I get so excited whenever you publish a new angel!
Thank you 🙂 I am really happy you like my Angel design! All the best, Rhondda
Absolutely adorable. Will check out your other angels also. God bless & keep designing.
Hi I’m new, so I just wanted to say the angel is so beautiful and I am checking out the rest of the family
Thank you for letting me know Kristy ♥ That indeed will make them even more special!!
I love your angels! I made several last year and gave them all away! I have one almost finished from then and will finish that one for me this year and make Grace for my sisters and mother this year. I am making the halos with my Grandmother McKennon’s crochet hooks so that makes them extra special.
Thank you so much Tina ♥
Thank you so much Coreen ♥ Have a wonderful week, Rhondda
Very welcome Linda 🙂 Wishing you happy holidays too!! Rhondda
Thank you so much Karen – I’m so happy you like the design and the pattern 🙂 Have a lovely week, Rhondda
