Gauge

Not imperative but if your stitches have big 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. Only a few rounds of the skirt are meant to have a more open appearance. All the top rounds are meant to be solid.

Finished Size

Approximately 7 inches tall and 5 inches wide (skirt diameter).

Notes

  • Find all my Angel Patterns here: Angel Crochet Patterns
  • 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 joining with a sl st the sl st will not be included as a stitch in the row-end stitch totals.
  • Do not work into slip stitches unless specified.
  • When you work the sc2tog decreases work under the front loop only (it makes the stitch less thick).
  • Ch 3 at the beginning of a round counts as 1 dc.
  • 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.
  • Add a handmade paper (or plastic) cone under her skirt to help her stay in shape on the top of your Christmas Tree.

Arms

Make 1.

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 [20]

R2: 1 sc in each st across, ch 1, turn [20]

R3: Rep R2, ch 1, turn [20]

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.

Wings

Make 2

R1: Ch 10, beg in the 2nd ch from the hook and work 1 sl st in the bl of each ch across, ch 1, turn [9]

R2: 1 sl st in the bl of each of the next 8 sts, sk the last st, ch 2, turn [8]

R3: 1 sl st in the bl of each st across, ch 1, turn [8]

R4: 1 sl st in the bl of each of the next 7 sts, sk the last st, ch 2, turn [7]

R5: 1 sl st in the bl of each st across, ch 1, turn [7]

R6: 1 sl st in the bl of each of the next 6 sts, sk the last st, ch 2, turn [6]

R7: 1 sl st in the bl of each st across, ch 1, turn [6]

R8: 1 sl st in the bl of each of the next 5 sts, sk the last st, ch 2, turn [5]

R9: 1 sl st in the bl of each st across, ch 1, turn [5]

R10: 1 sl st in the bl of each of the next 4 sts, sk the last st, ch 2, turn [4]

R11: 1 sl st in the bl of each st across, ch 1, turn [4]

R12: 1 sl st in the bl of each of the next 3 sts, sk the last st, ch 2, turn [3]

R13: 1 sl st in the bl of each st across, ch 1, turn to work along the row ends. [3]

You will be making a sc7tog. Insert hook in every other row end (there is a small space you will see) and pull up 1 loop in each. You will have 8 loops on your hook. Yarn over and pull through all 8 loops. Ch 1 and finish off leaving a long yarn tail to sew the wings in place.

To attach the wings use a whipstitch and secure them like this:

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.

The image below is for my Crochet Angels Pattern but the Halo design is the same:

  2. Your angels are absolutely wonderful and your patterns and videos are so helpful. I am a PSW and I gift them to my clts. They absolutely adore them. Thank you for sharing your amazing talent

  3. Hi Krystal, yes you can use the printer button at the top of my post to create a pdf or print the post. It uses PrintFriendly and this allows you to remove images and resize the text to make it more user friendly. All the best, Rhondda

  4. hi can these instructions be printed at all plz it would be great to keep a copy safe for future use x

  5. I will make a reminder for myself for the next one. Take out the stitch holder when you get to the part that doesn’t need it. (Smile) The person who gets this first one almost had a pink stitch holder along with the Angel! This worked up really fast. I haven’t done the halo yet but am going to make several and will wait to do all halos at one time. Thank you for some really beautiful and easy patterns. (And fast…)

  6. Thank you for this clear instruction video. I’m going to make some of these angels for my tree!!
