Arms

Make 1.The arm is created in one piece; worked flat and then seamed on the long edges with a slip stitch seam. Once the arm is complete you thread it through the openings on either side of the angel’s body, being sure to keep an equal amount of “arm” on each side. You can whipstitch these in place if you wish – I did not. I simply used 2 small stitches to attach the hands together in a “prayer” pose.

Round 1: Chain 21, begin in 2nd chain from hook and work 1 single crochet in each across, chain 1, turn [20 single crochet]

Round 2: 1 single crochet in each stitch across, chain 1, turn [20 single crochet]

Round 3: Repeat Round 2, chain 1, turn [20 single crochet]Fold the rectangle in half (along row 2) and seam the long edges using a slip stitch seam. Finish off and weave in any remaining ends.

Wings

Round 2: 1 slip stitch in the back loop of each of the next 8 stitches, skip the last stitch, chain 2, turn [8 slip stitches]

Round 3: 1 slip stitch in the back loop of each stitch across, chain 1, turn [8 slip stitches]

Round 4: 1 slip stitch in the back loop of each of the next 7 stitches, skip the last stitch, chain 2, turn [7 slip stitches]

Round 12: 1 slip stitch in the back loop of each of the next 3 stitches, skip the last stitch, chain 2, turn [3 slip stitches]

Round 13: 1 slip stitch in the back loop of each stitch across, chain 1, turn to work along the row ends. [3 slip stitches]You will be making a single crochet 7 together. Insert hook in every other row end (there is a small space you will see) and pull up 1 loop in each. You will have 8 loops on your hook. Yarn over and pull through all 8 loops. Chain 1 and finish off leaving a long yarn tail to sew the wings in place.

Halo

The halo is the only part of this project to use a different hook and thread. Please use the 2.25 millimeter (B) hook and the Gold Bowdabra Bow Wire. This is a thin piece of wire wrapped in gold metallic thread. I found mine at Michael’s in the ribbon section. It can stand on its own which is why I like it – and it is much thinner than pipe-cleaner (which was what I had been considering).

Crochet the halo like this:Chain 20, finish off leaving a tail of the bow wire. Now take the tail and thread it through the 7th chain from the opposite end. This will create the halo loop. Now twist (like a twist-tie) the two remaining ends together to make it straight and stiff. Take that one end (since you twisted them together you have one wire now) and thread it through the back of the angel’s head and down to the base of the neck before cutting off any of the excess wire. If you want to dab a bit of fabric glue in there to keep it in place you can.
