Free Pattern: Angel Pin


Many years’ ago, I sold finished crochet items and this was always a good seller. It was also big bang for your buck at craft shows. Unlike many crochet projects sold at craft shows, this one takes very little time and very little in expenses. It also gives people an opportunity to purchase a little something from your shop and bonus! You can attach the Angel Pin to a business card which they can have for later.

The Angel Pin makes a great quick little gift for family Christmas stockings, friends, co-workers. You can whip one of these up in 10 or 15 minutes. And, you can be creative with it. Put it inside Christmas cards or use as a hang tag decoration on gifts. Make it with teensy tiny metallic tencel and make dangle earrings. Or, make it in aran weight in several different colors to hang as a banner or streamer on a Christmas tree.

  9. I was looking for a pattern to make an angel. I could not find one so far which I could understand and manage to make. Your explanations are wonderful. You made me so happy. Thank you ever so much. Love and Regards

  10. I did not see you crochet row two in video, does that mean I should skip it. I love this and can’t wait to try it!!! Thank you .

  11. Thank you for this pattern. My son passed away 9 years ago and I make blankets and other things to take up to Seattle Children’s Hospital. I also make things for auctions to raise money for CHD research. This angle pin will be wonderful for me to make to send to those parents that have lost a child, to let them know they are thought of. Thank you for sharing your gift.

  15. Found this on a link with Fiber Flux which I’ve done a crochet cowl from. This was ideal for a friend at work who is retiring and I thought it would be a little something to keep as she does readings from the angel cards. Have made several and put them into a hanging for her. They were very easy to do and I think some of the other girls want them as well. X

  16. Thank you so much for creating these beautiful angels… they are super easy to make and beautiful to look at… can’t wait to give them to others to brighten their day as you have brighten mine… Bless you, Kathrine

  17. Dear Kim thank you so much for sharing this’ easy to do angel’ which I will be making for each child that I teach at the catechism classes. I’m sure they will love it. Keep up the good work!

  20. One of my News Years resolutions was to learn to crochet and follow a pattern. I have just made my first angel and I think I actually understand the pattern too.
    Many thanks for a lovely quick project.
