Finishing Instructions:

Littlest Crochet Angel Body

  • Finish off.
  • With R2 (the arms) on the RS (front) of your project, fold the Angel in half vertically and sew the base of the skirt together (the first and last stitches of R4 of the Angel). Sew the edges of R3 and R1 together too.
  • Weave in ends.

Littlest Crochet Angel Wings

  • Finish off.
  • Attach the wings to the back of the Angel near the very top of R1 of the Angel with needle and thread or hot glue.
  • Weave in ends.

Littlest Crochet Angel Halo

  • Cut a small section of gold (or silver) pipecleaner (approximately 2 inches long).
  • Bend the small piece into a halo shape (I use a regular pen shaft to do this), leaving a small straight section for attaching to the Angel bead (head).

Littlest Crochet Angel Head (Bead) for Ornament

  • If you are making this into an ornament, cut a length of fishing line (10-inches) or clear thread (for bracelet making). Fold it in half and create a strong double knot at the base (to create a loop). Thread the looped end onto a yarn needle and through the inside of the skirt (starting at the base) up through the center of the Angel and through the very top of R1 of the Angel and through the center of the bead. The knot end stays inside the dress.
  • Slide the needle (with the line still in place) through the halo loop. You can now remove the needle.
  • Thread the straight section of the pipe cleaner into the open hole on the wooden bead.
  • Using your hot glue (or similar strong glue), place a dab of glue on the top of the Angel (R1) and a dab on the hole at the base of the bead. Holding the fishing line loop, slide the bead down until it touches R1. Stick the bead in place securely. Let this set for a few minutes.

Littlest Crochet Angel Head Bead for Brooch

  • Slide the straight section of the pipe cleaner into the open hole on the wooden bead.
  • Using your hot glue (or similar strong glue), place a dab of glue on the top of the Angel (R1) and a dab on the hole at the base of the bead. Stick the bead to R1 securely. Let this set for a few minutes.
  • Hot glue or hand sew the brooch back to the back of the Angel.

  1. I love all of the angels in your series. Your pattern writing is very clear at a glance. I still haven’t made any, but I do plan on making some in the future.
