Crochet Angel, My Free Pattern







Ta-dah! Here is my little crochet angel!

 I'm not sure if I like it or not! It is somewhat cute, but the wings look more like hands, and I think my angel lucks majesty! I've seen some 3-D crochet angels on Pinterest; those are truly majestic! But I couldn't find the patterns. 

Anyway, my little angel will have its place on my Christmas tree this year!


I used size ten crochet thread, and 1.25 mm crochet steel hook. The angle came out 5 inches in height.


Ch 5, join in ring with sl st.

Round 1: ch 3 (counts as 1stdc), 15 dc in ring; join with sl st to 3rd ch of beginning ch-3. (16 dc)

Round 2: ch 3, dc in same beginning space, *2 dc in next dc* around; join with sl st to 3rd ch of beginning ch-3. (32 dc)

Round 3: sl st in next 9 dc, ch 20, skip next 14 dc, sl st in next dc, sl st in next 8 dc. (halo is made)

Continue crocheting in rows.

Row 4: ch 3 (counts as 1st dc), 4 dc in same beginning space. (5 dc)

Row 5: ch 3, turn (counts as 1st dc), (dc, ch 1, 2 dc) all in same beginning space, *(2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) in next dc* across. (5 shells)

Row 6: turn, sl st to next ch-1 space, ch 3 (counts as 1st dc), (2 dc, ch 1, 3 dc) all in same ch-1 space, *(3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc) all in ch-1 space of next shell* across.

Row 7: turn, sl st to next ch-1 space, ch 3 (counts as 1st dc), (2 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) all in same ch-2 space, *(3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) all in ch-1 space of next shell* across.

Row 8: turn, sl st to next ch-2 space, ch 3 (counts as 1st dc), (2 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) all in same ch-2 space, *ch 2, (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) all in ch-2 space of next shell* across.

Row 9: turn, sl st to next ch-2 space, ch 3 (counts as 1st dc), (2 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) all in same ch-2 space, *ch 5, (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) all in ch-2 space of next shell* across.

Fasten off. Attach thread in ch-2 space of second shell.

Row 10: ch 3 (counts as 1st dc), (2 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) all in same ch-2 space, *ch 2, (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) all in 3rd ch of next ch-5, ch 2, (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) all in ch-2 space of next shell* across, but leave the last shell unworked.

Row 11: turn, sl st to next ch-2 space, ch 3 (counts as 1st dc), (2 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) all in same ch-2 space, *ch 2, (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) all in ch-2 space of next shell* across. (5 shells)

Row 12: turn, sl st to next ch-2 space, ch 3 (counts as 1st dc), (2 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) all in same ch-2 space, *ch 5, (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) all in ch-2 space of next shell* across.

Row 13: turn, sl st to next ch-2 space, ch 3 (counts as 1st dc), (2 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) all in same ch-2 space, *ch 3, sc in 3rd ch of next ch-5, ch 3, (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) all in ch-2 space of next shell* across. Fasten off.
