I have been working on this free crochet angel pattern for a couple of weeks now. Crochet and frog (unravel), crochet and frog. I have remade the head about 5 times before I was happy with the size and shape.
The wings on this angel were an even bigger challenge. The first set was too small. The second set, while a nicer size, were too plain. But the third try finally seemed right. Not too flashy, but not to plain.
I chose a sparkly acrylic yarn for this pattern, and while I am usually drawn to multiple vibrant colors in my creations, this one just seemed like it should be mostly one color. I did add a sweet crochet halo in gold yarn just for fun.
With the holidays sneaking up on us it is a good time to get those holiday projects done. This crochet angel pattern is intentionally simple and works up fairly quickly. Picture several of these as a table centerpiece, or add a hook or loop and hang them from your tree.
This little angel would also make a cute toy for your own little angels.
To change the size, use a lighter weight yarn and smaller hook for a smaller version of this crochet angel, or a heavier weight yarn and a larger hook to make a bigger one.
This pattern can be found as a free download in the Varmint Market.
