Crochet Angels

Back home after a wonderful holiday, as I showed previously I had took my crochet with me, I need something to send me off to sleep and find the concentration of crochet does the trick for me.

This was the first Angel I have made and I used Patons 100% Cotton 4ply yarn and a 1.75 crochet hook.

She stands at approx 9” tall.

I hadn’t realised that I had her leaning back when I took the image but at least you can see the finished piece. Surprisingly easy to make comprising of half double crochet, double crochet and single crochet.

Although the yarn was thinner than I usually work with she still made up quite quickly.

Her hair was the trickiest part and although I don’t thick I did it correctly it looks similar to the pattern which I found at Annie's Crochet store here

My Next angel |I made to use up the yarn I had left and I made it for my dear friend Ruth as she keeps me sane, It stands approx 4” and I had to learn a new crochet stitch to make her, the frill is made with a Love Knot.

She’s just cute.

I have one more to make up and i think it will get a home at my Mams house.
