Silly little Angel!

Hope you all remember little angry Angel I posted photo of few weeks ago. Dear Debi B. asked to try the pattern out. And am glad she has helped me with it. Thank you Debi!

I came out with an Angel pattern after Bonnie B. asked me to create and Angel she could make and donate to cancer ill patients in local hospital, to cheer them up and brighten their day.

That is how silly little attitude Angel came to life.

Here is a photo of two of them. Angels-AmigurumiBB

Wing pattern is not mine. Found it long time ago and used it here. If one knows the original designer and owner of the wing pattern, let me know so can give her deserved credit.

Think I better get on with pattern, as I have one (two) more patterns to share today.

Angel is made in No.10 thread and 1,50 mm crochet hook. FInished size measures 13 cm (5″).

Debi has made her angel in worsted wight yarn and F hook and her angel measures 11″. Here is the photo of her Angel.

Debi B's Angel made out Angel pattern-AmigurumiBBFrom materials you will need to make angle is thread or yarn in flash color of your choice, white yarn or thread, little bit of black embroidery thread for the eyes, stuffing, and fabric starch to block and model wings.

Abbreviations:

st(s) – stitches

Sc – single crochet

dc – double crochet

hdc – half double corchet

ch – chain

R – round when worked in continuous rounds or row if work requires turns and straight line following.

Skirt

there are two different skirt patterns. I couldn’t decide which one so giving you both of them. If you look at the photo, you can see there are two different skirts. Make one you like better.

When it comes to describing patterns with dc and different stitches used I am no expert at all, so forgive me if there are mistakes or misunderstandings. If you will have difficulties, please let me know so can help you so me more with it.

Slip stitch to any front loop stitch of the upper body part R29 and work

R1 *inc1, sc1* around

R2 ch3 counts as 1st dc, dc1 in same stitch, ch1, dc2 in same stitch,*skip2, dc2, ch1, dc2 in same stitch* repeat around  slip stitch last to first 3chain made and continue with next round

R3  *dc2 in chain of shell made in R2, ch1 2dc in same loop* around

R4-R5 repeat R3

Second skirt pattern I used

Slip stitch to any front loop stitch of the upper body part R29 and work

R1 *inc1, sc1* around , slip stitch last to first

R2 working in back loops only, *hdc, sc, hdc over next three stitches, long dc (inserting the hook in the base of sc made previous round)* work this pattern 1 round

R3 ch3, turn, working in both loops (will work every second stitch this round) in each long dc of previous round sc1, skip one, and sc3 in one stitch, skip one- sc1 in long dc….continue this way around

R4 repeat R2

R5 repeat R3

R6 repeat R2

R7 repeat R3

R8 repeat R2

R9 5dc in sc made previous round, sc in long dc made previous round – repeat this around

Tie off hide ends

Halo (star)

Sc5 in magic ring

R1 ch3, *dc1, ch1, dc1 in same stitch* x4, dc1, ch1 slip stitch to chain made at start

You will create 5 petals or five points of the star

R2 ch3, *dc to chain between two dc (dc-ch-dc at previous round), ch3, slip stitch in between petals, ch3* x4 ch3 and slip stitch to the base of first chain made in this round.

Tie of leaving long end for sewing

Sew the star on top of angel’s head.

Hair

In white color thread/yarn

Sc4 in magic ring (do not close the ring) ch1, turn

Making rows here, so chain nad turn ater aech row is done

R1 inc4 (8 sts)

R2 *inc1, sc1* x4 (12 sts)

R3 *inc1, sc2* x4 (16 sts)

R4 *inc1, sc3* x4 (20 sts)

R5 *inc1, sc4* x4 (24 sts)

R6 *inc1, sc5* x4 (28 sts)

R7-R11 sc28

R12 do not turn, ch1, and work on sides (edges), sc around until you reach magic ring,

 

In magic ring sc1, ch9, starting at second ch from hook, slip stitch 8

Repeat this two more time (making 3 bangs)

When finished with bangs, continue with single crochet stitches around next side of the hair. Reaching end, tie off.

You can either make braids, pony tails, curls

Make them on the side of the head, using last row to slip stitch and continue work

I made braids, waving the thread to first three stitches on each side, then making

braids and folding them beneath the hair. Added wool bows on top of them.

Same way you can make curls. Slip stitch to side stitch, chain desired length for curl to be and either double or triple stitch to one chain stitch in order to reach curly look.

Repeat that for two or three stitches one each side.

For pony tails, make little tassels and sew on sides.

Angel Wing Pattern

Ch7

R1 Dc to 3rd ch from hook, dc1 to next, dc2 in next, dc1, next, dc2 next (8dcs)

R2 Ch3 (counts as 1st dc) , dc to next dc on previous row, *ch2, dc*  across this row (last dc will be in the place of chain3 of previous row-to achieve this skip last “normal dc from previous row and stitch dc into chain (7dcs+1ch3)

R3 Ch2 turn, 2dc-ch2-2dc in second ch2 made previous row, skip one chain and repeat 2dc-ch2-2dc two more times (same way, skipping one chain and making cluster to next),to finish this row, make last dc to beginning chain of previous row

R4 Ch2, turn, 3dc-ch2-3dc repeat three times making them in place of chains of each cluster made previous row. Finish of with dc made in last chain of previous row

R5 Ch2, turn,  3dc-ch2-3dc clusters make again in chains of each cluster made previous row. Exception this time is ch2 between each cluster made. Finish with dc in chain of previous row

R6 Ch2, turn, 3dc-ch2-3dc-ch2-sc to next chain of previous row

R7 Ch4, turn, 4dc-ch2-4dc made in chain of cluster made previous row, finish row with dc to chain of previous row

Here is photo of both wings made (not blocked yet). Just to give you idea on how they should look like.Angel Wings

To finish – the pattern uses picots and single crochet around the wing.

Picots are made: ch3 on last working sc and then slip stitch to the base of the stitch (or you can slip stitch to 3rd chain from hook)

If picot is difficult, you can single crochet around wing, just to make it firmer, or you can leave it as it is.

After both wings are finished, sew them together over beginning 5 chain stitches.

Use some fabric starch to harden and model the wings nicely.

And that is it! Angel done in no time!

Hope you have enjoyed and will even more when your Angel will be finished.

It is really fun little one to have near. Makes me smile whenever I see it!

Thank you everyone!

Love,

Vanja

  4. A few years ago, one of our local residents, Mac Vorce, who is also a bicycle enthusiast petitioned for the development of bicycle paths and trails.
    “Arsenio was a big hit way back when, he exited prematurely,
    and aren’t we all just plain tired with Jay Leno and Letterman.
    Whether these are taken live – while you are doing a real gig – or whether you have them done on
    a false stage, will depend on you.
