How Do You Crochet An Easy Angel?
A crochet angel can be as simple or elaborate as you want. All angels have these common elements: A head that may or may not have facial features. A gown or dress. Wings. A halo is optional and remember that you can swap one out for another if a halo on a different pattern appeals to you or if your favorite pattern doesn’t have one and you want one.
Typically an angel is worked in the round in an amigurumi pattern style, but a few of the patterns are worked flat as appliqués. You will need to know how to chain stitch, slip stitch, single crochet and double crochet. Knowing how to work a magic ring and an invisible decrease is helpful, but gauge is usually not too important.
A crochet marker may come in handy for keeping track of the stitch count and you’ll likely need a yarn needle for attaching pieces and weaving in ends. Many of the patterns are worked in acrylic worsted weight yarn, like red heart super saver or another favorite yarn, but you could also use cotton or wool yarn. The crochet tutorial instructions will indicate any special stitches and hook size needed and in no time at all you will have a beautiful angel on your crochet hook.
