My great aunt's 80th birthday is coming up, so I decided to crochet something special for her. She collects angels, so I am sure an amigurumi one is the way to go! I looked online and couldn't find the perfect angel I pictured. That's when I decided to try and make up my own pattern (which was a scary move for me, seeing as this is my very first pattern!). I think she turned out great. Here's the pattern for anyone who would like their own angel!
(Please let me know if anything is weird or unclear. I'm new to pattern-writing. Smiley



By the way, I thought I'd add in that this is my first project I've posted on craftster. I love this place..


What you will need:
tan, white, and brown yarn & two colors of yarn for dress.
small amount of sport weight yarn for flowers
small amount of black yarn for eyes
size F crochet hook
size E crochet hook
fiberfill for stuffing
yarn needle
buttons


Head/Body:

Using tan yarn and F hook, sc6 into a magic ring
Sc twice into each st (12 st)
Sc1, sc twice into next st* around (18 sts)
Sc2, sc twice into next st* around (24 sts)
Sc3, sc twice into next st* around (30 sts)
Sc4, sc twice into next st* around (36 sts)
Sc around for 5 rounds
Sc4, sc2tog* around (30 sts)
Sc3, sc2tog* around (24 sts)
Sc2, sc2tog* around (18 sts)
Sc1, sc2tog* around (12 sts)
Stop here and stuff head. Switch to the main color of your dress.

Sc around (12 sts)
Sc twice into each st (24 sts)
Sc around (24 sts)
Sc1, sc twice into next st* around (36 sts)
Sc for 2 rounds
Sc2, sc twice into next st (48 sts)
Sc for 7 rounds
Now change to the second color of your dress.

Sc for 3 rounds (48 sts)
Sc into the back loop of each st
Sc5, sc2tog* around (40 sts)
Sc3, sc2tog* around (32 sts)
Sc2, sc2tog* around (24 sts)
Sc2, sc2tog* around (18 sts)
Stop here to stuff body.
Sc1, sc2tog* around (12 sts)
Sc2tog around (6 sts)
Break yarn and gather remaining stitches. Weave in ends.



Wings: (make two)

Using white yarn and F hook, ch12
Sc into 2nd ch from hook and every ch across. Ch2 and turn.
Sc for 3 rows
Sc1, sc twice into next st, sc6, sc twice into next st, sc 1. Ch2 and turn.
Sc1, sc twice into next st, sc8, sc twice into next st, sc 1. Ch2 and turn.
Sc for 2 rows
Ch3, dc 3 times into next st, skip one st, sl st* across
Break yarn and leave a long tail to sew with.



Arms: (make two)

Using tan yarn and F hook, ch13
Sc into 2nd ch from hook and every ch across. Ch2 and turn.
Sc 2 rows.
Break yarn and leave a long tail to sew with.



Halo:

Using white yarn and F hook, ch22
Join with a sl st to form a ring
Sc around
Join st on hook to first sc with a sl st
Break yarn and leave a long tail to sew with.


Flowers:
(make one using F hook and same yarn as used for main part of dress,
and make two using E hook and sport weight yarn)

Form a magic ring
Ch2, sc9 into ring
Join st on hook with the second ch of ch2
Ch2, dc and then sc in next st, sl st* across
Break yarn and weave in ends.



Assembly:
Sew arms to the sides of the body, right under the head. Stitch both arms together at the front, so it

looks like she's praying. Sew the wings onto the body right behind the arms. Cut lengths of yarn about 6

inches long and hook them onto the head like you would if you were rug hooking. Stich the halo to the

middle of the head. Hot glue (or you can sew if you wish!) a small button to the middle of each of the

small flowers. Glue one of the small flowers to the middle of the big flower. Glue the flowers onto the

angel's hair. Cut two tiny lengths of black yarn and glue them to the face, to make eyes (you can

embroider the eyes if you wish, but you will need to do this before stuffing the head). Glue various sizes

of buttons around the bottom of her dress (this step is optional, but I think it adds a nice touch).





Now you're done with your sweet little angel. Make sure you keep her somewhere where she can

always watch over you! Smiley

...Oh, and let's hope my aunts loves hers!

How could your great aunt not love her?!!  I'm sure my great granddaughter will love the angel. She is fascinated with buttons so this little angel is perfect.
Glad you discovered using the Magic Circle for your amigurumi. It revolutionized my crocheting when I discovered the technique.

Thank you so much for your sweet comments, everyone!
I'm so happy that I could share the pattern with you. And I'm glad it's being used Smiley

I'd love to see pictures if anyone makes one.

Thanks for the welcome! And it sounds like your learning fast. I crocheted for a few months before I tried crocheting in the round. lol. I'm sure you'll be writing your own patterns in no time! Smiley

Thanks Smiley I just found out about the magic ring/circle a few months ago. It truly is magical.

Great work!  She's really cute.  I imagine she'd be great for Christmas, too.  I love the buttons and the flowers in her hair.
