Making a Crochet Angel
February 11, 2012
With some yarn or thread, you can make some or all of these pretty angels.
Approximate Time: For all three, about 1 hour
- cool temp glue gun
- size H or G hook (depending on maker) and size "E" for smaller pin
- crochet yarn and/or thread (double strand)
- embellishments like ribbon, buttons, beads, feathers, pearls, or whatever you like
- pin backs, magnets, or ribbon to hang it with
Full Body Ornament:
- Head: for both full angels, ch 4. Make 11 DC in 4th ch from hook. Join. Continue work without breaking off.
- Body: Ch 4, make 2 TrC in same st. Ch 4, make 3 TrC in next st. Ch 3, turn.
Make 2 Dc's in same st and 1 Dc in each of 4 st. Ch 4, make 4 Dc's in next 4 st and 2 Dc's in last st. You should have 12 across.
- You can stop there. Or, for a ruffle effect on the bottom, you can ch 3, skip 1 and slst in next st across for 8 loops. Break off and weave in tail.
- Attach new yarn (this can be the same color or a different one) to the space between the head and the body. Ch 4, make 2 (3 if you want the wings a bit more pronounced), TrC in same st then a ch 4 and slst in same st. Break off and work in tails.
- Repeat for other wing.
- I wanted to keep this one simple, so I just used a looped ribbon and button glued to the neck. You can doll it up as simple or fancy as you like. You can make a ribbon hanger for this one, as it's a bit large for a pin or magnet.
Full Body Angel Pin:
Follow the same directions but "use Dc's and not TrC". This makes the pin a bit smaller and I think tighter.
Angel Head and Wings Pin:
Ch 4, make 11 Dc in 1st ch from hook. Break off and weave in tail.
Ch 4, make all st's in 1st ch. Make 3 TrC, 3 Dc, ch 1, 1 TrC, ch 1, 3 Dc, 3 TrC, ch 2 slip stitch to join.
- Glue head to wings, just below the arch. Embellish with your choice of ribbons, roses, buttons, etc.
- Glue pin back or magnet to two smaller angels.
NOTE: I didn't show the smaller angel being done, as it's the same pattern as the larger one.

These are some Christmas angels I make. There is no real pattern to them, no count, so they're each a little different.
