Little Angel


Angels, little angels, our guardians and spiritual friends. They are with us at every moment of our lives, ready to protect, help, comfort and inspire. Belief in them is included in the world's greatest religions. They have become a symbol and a way to express feelings and emotions that everyone finds in themselves.


The angels we give to others often express our best intentions towards that person. We can give someone an angel for good health or for good luck. It works a bit like a talisman, or just like a tangible wish for health and happiness. The angel carries a simple message: I want you to always be healthy, safe and happy. The angels at home are a source of positive vibrations, they move and touch you.


The symbolism of angels is very rich and complex. For some, they are primarily guardians and patrons, for others, spiritual friends. They help us to express our own feelings and wishes for our loved ones, and that is why we, from the bottom of our soul and heart, give them the greatest importance.


How to make a small angel on the crochet? It's easier than you might think.


How to make a small Christmas Angel


To make an angel we will need:

- yarn

- crochet hook

- scissors

- needle with a large eye

- filling


Head

1. We make a magic circle, and 5 double crochet on it.

2. In the second round, we make 2 double crochet in each crochet stitch (we mark the first stitch in the row - for example, pink yarn).

3. In the next row we do:

- 2 double crochet in the first stitch then 1 double crochet in the next stitch (repeat the sequences 5 times).

4. In the fourth row we do the sequence:

- 2 double crochet in the first stitch then 1 double crochet in the next 2 stitches (repeat the sequences 5 times).

5. In rows 5 - 7 make a double crochet in each stitch.

7. Now we come to reduce.

We do sequences:

- decrease (2 double crochet remake in one stitch) then 1 double crochet in the next 2 stitches (repeat the sequences 5 times).

8. In the next row we do sequences:

- decrease (2 double crochet remake in one stitch) then 1 double crochet in the next stitch (repeat the sequences 5 times).

9. The time has come to fill the angel's head.

10. In the last row:

- we make only a decrease (2 double crochet remake in one stitch)(repeat the sequences 5 times)

- finish with a sleep stitch

- we leave a piece of yarn to sew the head to the body.


Wings

1. We make a magic circle and 8 stitches on it.

2. We make 2 half trebles in each stitch, in the first half treble, we mark the beginning of the row.

3. In the next row we do:

- 2 half trebles in the first stitch then 1 half treble in the next stitch (repeat the sequences 7 times).

4. In the fourth row we do the sequence:

- 2 half trebles in the first stitch then 1 half treble in the next 2 stitches (repeat the sequences 7 times).

5. In the next row we do the sequence:

- 2 half trebles in the first stitch then 1 half treble in the next 3 stitches (repeat the sequences 7 times).

6. We proceed to the colour change. We insert the crochet hook into the next stitch and make a double crochet, but we wrap the yarn with the new colour (pink in our case).

7. We make 3 chain stitches,

8. and slip stitch in the same stitch.

9. We make 3 chain stitches,

10. and slip stitch in the next stitch.

11. We repeat the sequence around the piece: 3 chain stitches and slip stitches in the next stitch.



Body


1. We make a magic circle and 8 stitches on it. Finish this encirclement with a slip stitch.



2. We make 2 chain stitches and treble in the first stitch then 2 trebles in the next stitches. Finish this encirclement with a slip stitch.

3. In the next row we do:

- 2 chain stitches and treble in the first stitch then 1 treble in the next stitch, then

- 2 trebles in the next stitch and 1 treble in the next stitch (repeat the sequences 7 times)

Finish this encirclement with a slip stitch.

4. In the fourth row we do the sequence:

- 2 chain stitches and treble in the first stitch then 1 treble in the next 2 stitches, then

- 2 trebles in the next stitch and 1 treble in the next 2 stitches (repeat the sequences 7 times)

Finish this encirclement with a slip stitch.

5. In the next row we do the sequence:

- 2 chain stitches and treble in the first stitch then 1 treble in the next 3 stitches, then

- 2 trebles in the next stitch and 1 treble in the next 3 stitches (repeat the sequences 7 times).

6. We proceed to the colour change. We insert the crochet hook into the next stitch and make a slip stitch, but we wrap the yarn with the new colour (pink in our case).

7. We make 3 chain stitches. Then we follow step by step as in the case of "wings" (from step 8 to 11).


Connecting elements


We have head, wings and body ready. We start connecting the elements.

We need a needle and thread to connect the elements.

We take the larger circle (body) and bend it in the place marked with a dashed line (see photo)

Then we connect the resulting corners with each other and sew them together.

Now we move on to connecting the body with the wings.

We take a smaller circle and bend it in half.

We proceed to connect the body with the wings (see photos). We sew them together.

Now is the time to attach the angel's head.

The little angel is ready. I hope you like it and it will be a lovely decoration for your Christmas tree. Let's create wonders to please our eyes and hearts.
