So let’s get started…
3 Angel Patterns for Crochet, Cro-tat, and Tatting
It all started with this wrote out the pattern here, that I first saw on pinterest and then again on Facebook.
1.Tiny Tatting Angels Pattern
You can find the pattern here (along with many more) on my Pinterest FREE Tatting Patterns board to save and download for yourself. I wish I knew the source so I could link to the designer’s blog but I don’t unfortunately. This pattern can be needle tatted, shuttle tatted and cro-tatted using a double tatting hook so you can tat the chains. For more info on tatting chains check this post How To Cro-tat
2. Tiny Angel Crochet Pattern
This pattern is half inspired by the pattern above and half inspired by this crochet angel pattern Kaitlin’s Angels.
Materials and tools: Aunt Lydia’s Thread #10
9 size 8 seed beads per angel pre-strung onto the thread.
Size 7 thread hook.
Start Ch. 2
- 5 SC into the second chain, Before next SC *pull up a bead and then SC* repeat from * two more times. Slip Stitch into first SC and the second SC.
- Chain 3 and in the same add 2 DC and 1 HDC, Slip Stitch in the next 2 SC. Chain 2
- Turn and chain 2 more and in the same add 2 DC and 1 HDC, Slip Stitch into the center of the wings.
- Chain 3, pull up bead, chain 1. Then in the same center stitch in between the wings *TR , add bead* repeat from *4 more times.
- Fasten off, hide ends and block. I use a light stiffener. Then add earring hook and make another like I did here or add to a necklace.. so many possibilities.
3. Tiny Cro-Tat Angel Pattern
Materials and Tools: Lizbeth thread #10 (I tend to prefer Lizbeth threads for cro-tatting and aunt lydias for crochet)
8 size 8 seed beads per angel pre-strung.
I used a size 7 thread hook for the crochet and size 0 Takashima tatting hook to tat the rings.
Please note the * symbol used in the tatted ring patterns means add a bead between those DS.
- R, 2-3 * 1 * 1* 3-2 Close
- R, 2+3-1-1-3-2 Close
- R, 2+5 * 5-2 Close
- R, 2+3-1-1-5 Close
Now Using the thread hook slip stitch into the first picot on ring 1 and then in last picot made previously to join the head and wing and get into position to start the ‘crochet’ part.
The Crochet part
- Make *Eyelet Foundation Chain, pull up bead*, repeat from * again. Now make an eyelet foundation chain and join into lower body ring bead picot. Then you will repeat from * to * 2 times. Make eyelet foundation chain and slip stitch in body/wing picot join.
- Fasten off, hide threads and block/stiffen.
- Add tree hook, make more for jewelry set.. get creative! These are quick, cute and fun!
