Angel Ornament

on December 30, 2011

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.
