Little Angel



My favorite of our free crochet angel patterns, this crochet angel comes complete with glitter halo and button face. The crochet wings are quick and easy to make. Make an ornament, pin or fridge magnet with this angel crochet pattern. This pattern comes to from M.E.H. Designs.

This is absolutely the cutest angel. I loved making them. I gave for an ornament on gifts and packages. It turns out adorable and so easy. I make several at one time. So I would make 5 wings, 5 bodies etc.... works perfect. Thanks for sharing this pattern. I loved it !!

I know I'm a year too late but I love this pattern. It was so easy to make. I used gold cord for the wings instead of yarn and they were beautiful.

I made this angel last year for several people I work with. It was a big hit and so easy and fun to make. I am going to make some more this year for packages. Love it!

I've been looking for something to attach to wrapped presents for Christmas. This is perfect and would be less expensive than buying ornaments for packages. Thanks!
