I am pleased to be participating in the 12 Weeks of Christmas CAL organized by Maria of Pattern Paradise. For my free pattern, I decided to make a crochet angel. You can pick up the free pattern for my Peace on Earth Angel below!

Each of my Crochet Angel Designs is crocheted using Red Heart Super Saver Yarn, in white. This is a durable multi-purpose yarn with great stitch definition. The yarn used to create this free pattern was sent to me by Red Heart. One ball of Super Saver Yarn will allow you to make multiple crochet angels! This makes them very affordable projects for you to crochet and give as gifts each year.

Red Heart Super Saver White

Red Heart Super Saver Yarn is a medium weight yarn and it is available in more than 120 different colors. Red Heart Super Saver Yarn is machine washable and dryable and the solid colors are available in no-dye lots – which means if you run out – you can just buy more without worrying about matching up your dye lots!

For this year’s CAL I have designed the Peace on Earth Angel Pattern for you to crochet. This Christmas Angel is crocheted with Red Heart Super Saver (medium weight) yarn; beginning at the top her head and worked in continuous rounds to the base of her skirt. You will add the wings to the back of her dress using simple whip-stitches at the end, crochet the ‘arm’ and simply insert it through the small holes in her dress you created by following the crocheting instructions and slip the crocheted halo between the stitches at the back of her head.

This Angel stands on her own and she does not need to be ‘stiffened’. Her halo is designed with a thin bow wire I purchased at Michael’s (our local craft store) so it holds its shape and stays in place easily.

There are a few other little angel crochet patterns available from last year too and I have linked them here below:

Each of these patterns is available for FREE on my website. I also offer a full ad-free PDF version for purchase in my Ravelry Shop (Link to Ravelry) if you prefer a copy you can view offline.

Options:

  • add a ribbon above her wings at the base of her neck to hang her from your tree
  • add a bell under her skirt to create an angel bell
  • add yarn hair or embroidery to her simple white outfit
  • use some glue and glitter to accent her wings
  • use her as a table-top angel
  • use her as a tree-topper for your tree
  • you can create (or purchase) a paper, or plastic cone to insert under her skirt to help her maintain her shape or simply use your fingers to rearrange her skirt into position.
  • trouble getting her to stay on top of the tree? simply insert part of a paper towel roll (or toilet paper roll) beneath her dress and over the bendy bit on the tree (or use the cone mentioned in the point above)

Notes

  • 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).
  • Ch 3 at the beginning of a round counts as 1 dc.
  • Do not work into slip stitches unless specified.
  • 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:

  1. Hi Catherine, I’m sorry to hear of the passing of your mom. I’m happy that this pattern can be used for your charitable donations in memory of your Mom. Wishing you the very best, Rhondda

  2. I am making your angels in memory of my mom who nursed and cared very deeply for children. I am using different patterns of yours and combining them together, all of the money gained will be donated to the local hospital’s children floor. Thank you for sharing my mothers passion (the gift of crocheting).

  3. Absolutely fantastic. I am making your angels fir charity. They are so easy to make, but look complicated when finished. Thank you so much for sharing.

  4. Hi Ada, I’m so happy to hear you like the Angel patterns I write 🙂 Thank you for trying them and for letting me know you like them!! Have a lovely week, Rhondda

  5. I have been making angels for about 35. years and your angels are by far the most beautiful angels i have ever made with the most compliments. You are truly very creative in your patterns. Thank you so much for sharing them. Ada

  6. The wings on The Peace on Earth Angel are totally different than on the other beautiful Angels. I can’t find the instructions anywhere. I really would like to have it look like your photo. All the other Angels seem to use the same wing pattern..Please advise.
    ps
    I love them all

  7. Could give me all the names of your eight Angel I have some of them like Peace on Earth.

  8. Hi Jill, Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a comment to let me know you have tried the patterns 🙂 and that you like them! You totally made my day 🙂 Have a lovely week, Rhondda

  9. I truly love your angels! I have made nearly ten to give as gifts. Small and large ones.. I make them in colors but all one color for each. Everyone I have gifted to has been very pleased. Your patterns are easy to follow and very satisfying to complete. My thanks to you for sharing your expertise. I have four ready to give at this holiday. Best wishes to you!

  10. I know one of the crocheters who made the project put a tea light under her dress (the battery kind) to light it up in one of the Facebook groups 🙂

  11. I would like to know what you used for a single light to light up this angel inside the dress. Now I no longer see the lit up angel as i scan back. She is lovely either way, but i love the lit up look! Thank you for the free pattern!

  12. Hi Dee, It must be something on your end preventing you from copying or printing the file. I have print friendly set up (linked at the top and bottom of every post) and my site even allows you to use copy and paste yourself to a word document. If you have a pop up blocker installed and are trying to use printfriendly, check your url address bar on the right side there should be a little icon flashing up there to notify you that it is blocking Printfriendly. I’m sorry you are having such trouble 🙁 All the best, Rhondda

  13. I am UNABLE to copy your free pattern, “Peace Angel” no matter how hard I try?
    What is preventing me from copying your pattern? I can copy the picture but that is where it ends!
    Tried to get it from your website as well as Ravelry with the same results.
    I really would like to get this pattern and crochet it for a gift for my daughter this Christmas.
    Thanking you in advance for your assistance in this matter.
    Dee

  14. what happened to R16 in the Christmas Angel instructions?
    Thank you!
