Angel Ornament

Angle Ornament

(I used a size E crochet needle for this pattern and 4-ply worsted weight acryllic yarn. Gauge isn’t terribly important.)

Wings – Make 2

Ch 2

R1 – sc 2 into 2nd chain from hook, turn (2sc)

R2 – Ch 1, 2sc in first sc, 2 sc in ext sc, turn (4sc)

R3-6 – Ch1, 2sc in first sc, sc in each sc until last, 2sc in last sc, turn (12sc)

Fasten off.

Body

Ch 2

R1 – sc 2 into 2nd chain from hook, turn (2sc)

R2 – Ch 1, 2sc in first sc, 2 sc in ext sc, turn (4sc)

R3-13 – Ch1, 2sc in first sc, sc in each sc until last, 2sc in last sc, turn (6sc)

R14 – Ch1, sc in each sc across, turn

R15 – Repeat R3 (28sc)

Fold edges of ‘triangle’ together and join with tapestry needle, keeping ends hidden inside, to make a ‘bell’ or ‘cone’ shape for the angel’s body.

Head

Ch 2

R1 – sc 6 into 2nd chain from hook, join to first sc with slip stitch

R2 – *sc 2 into first sc, 1 into next (Repeat * until 6th sc) (9sc)

R3 – sc in each stitch (9sc)

R4 – skip first sc and sc in second, skip third and sc in fourth, skip fifth and sc in sixth…

Continue decreasing in this manner until the bottom of the ball (head) is very small.

‘Close’ with a slip stitch and fasten off.

Weave ends into inside with tapestry needle.

Use a tapestry needle to attach wings to body and head to top of ‘cone’ body.

If you want to use this angel as an ornament, attach a loop at the top of the head.

Intro and Upcoming Patterns

Lately, I’m excited about crocheting. Soon I’ll start back to school and not have as much time to do it, but then it’s also a great way to spend time between classes when I have nothing else to do!

I want to use this blog to share observations, discoveries, patterns and tips about crocheting, and I always welcome input too! The way I do something may not be the way others would prefer to do it, or there might be an easier way I’d love to know about!

The first pattern I’m going to post will be a pattern for an angel ornament. I’m still learning proper crochet lingo, so bear with me!

After the angel pattern, I want to post a link to a great snowman pattern and show some modifications I made to it when I used it.

My next post after those two will be about crocheting in the round… just tips and tricks that I learned while doing and would have benefitted from knowing beforehand!
