Crochet Angel Ornament
My mom was a fan of angel decorations for Christmas. Having a few extra angels around the house makes it feel like she is here with us for the holidays.
Cotton Vs. Acrylic Yarn
You will see that I used cotton yarn for this angel. Cotton is not shiny like acrylic yarn and has more of a natural look to it. You can absolutely use acrylic yarn for this angel. You can also use a larger yarn, hook, and bead to create a larger angel. It is all up to you.

Crochet Angel Ornament
-Written in US terms.
– I do not count my CH2, turning chain, as a stitch.
– Pattern is worked in joined rounds.
Angel Torso and Wings
With White (Ecru) yarn.
Round 1: Make a Magic Circle, CH 2, Work 20 DC into the Magic Circle. SLST to the first ST. (20 DC)
Round 2: CH2, Work 2 DC into each ST around. SLST to first DC. (40 DC)
Round 3: Step 1: Skip 14 STs, SLST to next ST. (This will cause the circle to fold in half.)
Round 3: Step 2: SLST in the next 5 STs.
Round 3: Step 3: Skip 14 STs, SLST to next ST. Fasten off.
The slip stitches from steps 1 and 3 will cause the circle to be folded in half and joined in two places.
Adding the Skirt and Head
With the skirt color yarn, cut 21 8-inch pieces of yarn and one 12-inch piece of yarn. Lay the 8-inch pieces of yarn out flat and use the 12-inch piece of yarn to knot them together in the middle.
Thread the two ends of the 12-inch piece of yarn onto a yarn needle. Pass this needle through the center hole of the torso piece and through the center of the circle (where the Magic circle should be.)
Thread the wooden bead on the needle. Knot the yarn ends together with an overhand knot just above the bead. Knot the yarn ends again about 3 inches above the bead. Clip off any excess yarn above the second knot. Use scissors to trim the bottom of the skirt.
Now your Crochet Angel Ornament is complete and ready to be enjoyed. They work up fast and make a great gift or holiday decoration.

I have made 14 of them and I put Halos on them. I wish I could put pictures on here I would show them to you
I am so happy you like them. You can send pictures to email@example.com .
What did you use for the halo?
Can you tell what you used for halos please?
I am not the one you asked, but I have seen people use wire to make a halo or you could glue a small bit of yarn in a circle on the head.
That is wonderful!
These are so cute. I tried one today. I know what this year’s package adornments will be. Thank you for sharing this❤️
You are very welcome. I wanted them to be something that worked up fast.
I just finished my first one. This was easy enough for even a beginner like me to complete. I have one quick question. I am having difficulty getting the knot at the top big enough to hold the bead on without looking big and bulky. Do you have any ideas on how to secure this to be sure the bead doesn’t come off? I know gravity will hold it while it is hung, but I am worried about it coming off once I take the ornaments off the tree. Thanks!!
Besides making a big knot I am not too sure. You could always put a small bead of hot glue at the top of the bead to keep it in place.
Love this pattern!!! It is something easy to make but it looks lovely. Thank you for sharing. Everyone on my Christmas list is getting one.☺️
That is wonderful!!!
