Crochet Angel Tree Topper

You will need to know how to make a magic ring, how to single crochet (double crochet in British terms), and how to make invisible decreases. Don’t worry if you haven’t done any or all of these techniques before. You can learn them in my video tutorials:

Materials and tools

Aran/worsted weight cotton yarn in skin tone of choice for the face

Fluffy yarn in white or cream for the wings (I used Sirdar Creamy Snuggly Chunky Snowflake in creamy)

Yarn for the hair (I used Twilleys Goldfingering which is a 4-ply/sport weight)

1 pair of 4mm black safety eyes

Black embroidery thread

Toy stuffing (for the head only)

3.5mm/E crochet hook

Yarn needle

Stitch marker

Scissors

Abbreviations

Ch = chain

St(s) = stitch(es)

Sl st = slip stitch

Sc = single crochet

2sc = single crochet 2 in same st

Inv dec = invisible decrease: Insert hook in front loops of next 2 sts, yarn over, pull through both front loops, yarn over, pull through 2 remaining loops

C1 = skin tone of choice

C2 = white

C3 = fluffy yarn for wings

C4 = hair color of choice (I used Twilleys Goldfingering)

Rd = round

R = row

Gauge/Tension

4″ x 4″ (10.16 x 10.16 cm) = 19 sts x 20 rows of sc

Instructions

Start with the head in C1

Rd 1: sc 6 in magic ring

Rd 2: 2sc 6 (12)- [sc 1, 2sc 1]*6 (18)

Rd 3: [sc 2, 2sc 1]*6 (24)

Rd 4: [sc 3, 2sc 1]*6 (30)

Rd 5 to 8: Sc 30 (30)

Rd 9: [sc 3, inv dec 1]*6 (24)

Rd 10: [sc 2, inv dec 1]*6 (18)

Rd 11: [sc 1, inv dec1]*6 (12)

Secure your stitch with a stitch marker. Decide where you’d like the eyes to go. Embroider the eyelashes with black embroidery thread, attach the eyes.

Make the crochet angel’s hair with C4

Cut the yarn you chose for the hair in approx. 30cm/12″ long strings. Thread your yarn needle with 3 strings at a time and attach them to the head as shown in the picture below. I used 4ply/ sport weight yarn for the hair. If your yarn is thicker 1 to 2 strings at a time will be enough.

Of course you can attach and style the hair anyway you like. I gave my angel a middle parting and two ponytails.

Before you continue with the body, fill the head with plenty of toy stuffing.

Rd 1: Sc 12- [sc 1, 2sc 1]*6 (18)

Break yarn, pull through, sew in.

Crochet the angel’s wings in C2 and C4

Crochet the wings with your white cotton yarn and fluffy yarn together as shown in the picture. The cotton yarn will make it easier to see the stitches you made, and will make the wings more thick and sturdy.

Break yarn, pull through. Sew in the ends at the tips of the wings. Then sew in the long ends towards the upper, inner middle of each wing, so they peak out exactly where you want to sew them onto the angel’s back.

Positioning and attaching the wings to the back

Firmly attach the wings sewing downwards a few stitches, and sewing back upwards again. Weave in the ends and hide them inside the body/dress.
