Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I can't wait to make this for my sister.

Very cute! I like the ideas others have mentioned here, too.

cute and easy pattern! thanks!

Glad you liked it!

Hi, loisc93 7858686. How the pattern prints depends on how long the instructions are. If you would like to have more control over how it prints, I would recommend copying and pasting it into a Word document so you can adjust font size and line breaks as needed. Thanks! --editors of FaveCrafts

thanks for lovely angel, could the pattern be placed on one page though?

@A10aseegal, I'm sorry to hear of your trouble. I have two options for you: 1. You can contact the pattern designer directly for help. The designer is specified in the byline. 2. Try posting your question to our Facebook site; perhaps a fellow crafter can assist. Here is the link: --Editors of FaveCrafts

Can someone PLEASE help me!?? I have tried to crochet this angel 5 times and it never comes out like the picture! I finally just started changing the pattern so the holes would line up! Any help would be appreciated! I really LOVE this pattern and am running out of time to make MANY for a Christmas Angel tree to hang and put the childrens needs and wants attached to the angel! Thank you ALL so much!

Hi nanajean5 6066932, We do have a photo loaded for this pattern. If you do not see an image, it could be a problem with your browser settings. Please also make sure you are waiting for the page to load fully. Hope this helps! --Editor of FaveCrafts

need picture of angel

This is an great pattern. The angel looks beautiful. I Love It!

crocheterinfl How do you starch them. Can spray starch work? I would suppose making the liquid would be better. Do they still sell that? This is exactly what I thought too when I saw it. I have tons of a real light cream, red, and green. I think white would be the best, but if as an ornament for the tree, red, green, blue, etc. Let your imagination go wild. Does anyone know how long it takes to make. I better hurry for groups friends.

Wonderful pattern, very pretty, very quick and easy. I will be giving them as Christmas presents.

really cute and basic, great pattern

What a sweet craft! Ive got to make a few of these.

I am going to make some of these. I just found this site and it is fantastic.

I love Angels & I'll be making lots of these for my tree & to give as gifts. Thanks to all for your ideas. I love the idea of sending them to our military to have a "Guardian Angel in their pocket" while deployed & also for the hospital gowns. The doctors & nurses could wear them too. I'm going to take several of them & make a mobile.

When I saw this adorable Angel and saw how easy it is to make. The ideas came flowing. Here are a few I thought I would share with the all the Angel lovers out there and those who know and love them. 1. Make a few of them and sew them together then starch them and make a Christmas tree topper. By the way the Angel doesn't have to be dressed in White. crocheted She can be made of any color you desire. 2. For my next idea a thicker yarn would be needed. This is a potholder/ trivet for your table. you would have to expand on the body and wing part, but other wise it would be perfect for that was well 3. Gift decarations for on top of your gift, as part of your angel motif. Let's say you have made some of these cute little angels and to top off your gift. You put one on top. The receiver, will not suspect a thing that she will be getting more little darlings inside. 4. If you are going to have a surgery, major or minor, doesn't matter. Surgery is surgery. Crochet some of these angels and give one to each of the persons waiting for you to come out. Most of all put on in the pocket of your hospital gown. It's next to your heart. When I had a major surgery I did this with other sorts of angels that meant a great deal to me, and it meant a great deal to the folks waiting for me to come out. 5. Crochet one of these little angels & put it in each of your cars. You never know when you will need a little "Guardian Angel" over your shoulder. I happen to believe in the upmost real ones but as a reminder that we all can use an angel there as well. This is only a few of a handful of ideas I have had. Hope the crocheters out there find them useful... Crocheter- in- Fl

im a beginner and was able to do this thank you

I'm so glad everyone's been enjoying the pattern and sharing it! Just wanted to make a small correction RS = right side

I enjoyed making this little gift for my family and coworkers, they loved it some friends have asked for the pattern it its so beautiful and easy to make. Thanks, Margie57

Dian, I'm so glad to hear that you found the pattern easy to follow, and what a wonderful way to share the angels, thank you!

I will try it as I like to make it for my Christmas tree. but it would be better if it is published with crochet samples as chain is 0 in crochet magazines . if you do it please send it to me by mail as it will be easy for me to follow. thanks Merry Christmas sanaa

Instructions so easy even I was able to do it. I'll be making and sending these to soldiers so they can have an "angel in their pocket" while deployed!
