Amigurumi Angel Wings With Halo



Angel wings and a halo for your amigurumi,
The wings fit perfectly this Bear pattern  that I released in 2014.  There's also a full video tutorial for the bear. 
Of course you can use the wings for anything you'd like, you don't have to use them on the bear. The wings are 5 inches across at the widest points.

The Angel Bear is now part of a project called the "Kayden Project" to help spread awareness for pregnancy and infant loss. Read more about this project and how you can be a part of it here.

Scroll down this page for the wing and halo pattern. Look for the green print friendly button at the bottom of this post and there you will also find the option to leave a

donation. Thank you so very much and enjoy!

(If you missed the link at the top  the Bear pattern is here)


Wings:
make 4
with white
1) ch11 *begin with a long starting tail on 2 wings only in case you need them for sewing later
2) starting with the 2nd ch from the hook, 1sc in each ch (10)

3) ch1 and turn, 1sc in next 8st,
ch3 and turn,
4) start in the 4th st from the hook, 1sc in next 6st then 2tog
5) ch1 and turn, 1sc in next 5st, 
ch3 and turn,
6)
start in the 4th st from the hook, 1sc in next 3st then 2tog
working now along the edge to the left of your last st, you'll have to push your hook through, 2tog then 2tog then 1sc in the outer loop of the corner. Next, working along the outer loops of the row, 1sc in each of the 11 outer loops.  f/o leaving a long tail for sewing. Weave this yarn tail back along the edge, pull the wing out straight if it got bunched up while weaving the yarn tail. Put 2 wings together and whip stitch along the outer edges.
Optional ~ outline the wings with gold thread by crocheting all the way around the edge. This part can be tricky as you will have to push through both side of the wing with your crochet hook. After getting halfway around the wings I switched to a smaller, steel hook which made it easier.




Halo: you can make a halo different ways, chose one that will be easiest for you. One is super easy, just use a pipe cleaner by itself, form a circle and push the ends into the head. You can also wrap wire with yellow yarn and use fabric glue one each end. Or crochet a tube or crochet 2 rows. On the bear pictured in this pattern I made the halo by crocheting the rows.

Halo using a tube: Use yellow yarn. For a sparkly halo hold metallic golden thread along side the yarn

1) magic circle or adjustable loop with 5st (5)
2-21) 1sc in each st for 20 rows

f/o leaving a tail for sewing. Inset a wire or pipe cleaner with about an inch or so hanging out the one end, sew the open end of the tube to the closed end. Insert the wire into the head then sew the halo to the head.

Halo using rows: With yellow yarn. You can also hold golden thread along with the yarn.
1) chain 27
2) starting with the 2nd ch from the hook, 1sc in each ch (26)
f/o leaving a long tail for sewing. Place a wire in the center leaving a bit hanging over on each end. Loop each end so they don't poke you while you are whip stitching the  piece closed. It's a bit awkward stitching it because it's almost too narrow to close but do your best, using you yarn needle just go through the outer loops on each side and pull tight. Then bend the piece into a loop and  sew the ends together forming a closed circle. Bend the wire ends, twist them together and trim. Leave about an inch or so that you can push into the head.

    1. for sure they would, might be a little small but they'd be cute still I think. You can make one piece out of the 4 first and see how they'd look that way. The one piece only takes a few minutes to make :)

    1. yes, it is linked in the description, at the top of the page just under the first photo.

      I am so very sorry for your loss. The bear you see in the photo is the one I made for my niece who also suffered a miscarriage earlier this year.

      Much love to you,
      Sharon

  7. Thanks for your patterns. The only one I've tried is your big foot turtle. It, and now that I've made four of them for my grandsons, was my first attempt at crocheting amigurumi. I'd love to send a picture but I don't know how. I still wanted you to know how much I appreciate your YouTube videos. Thanks again.
