I love them all–from the simple to the grand and I can’t wait to dive into all the details, let’s get into some fun holiday crocheting projects!
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, and a halo that is totally optional. 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.
These patterns can be altered to fit a variety of purposes, so if you’re looking for an angel tree topper or a lovely angel ornament, you have come to the right place! Plus, these handmade pieces make a lovely gift. Make sure to check the description of each of the crocheted angels to ensure that you find a pattern that will have this sweet angel at the perfect size for you.
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 the gauge is usually not too important.
A stitch 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 worsted weight acrylic yarn, like red heart super saver, lion brand yarn, 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.
