This Angel is very easy and quick to make.
The pattern uses only basic crochet stitches - double crochets and chains.
The pattern was made with YarnArt Begonia: 100% cotton, mercerized cotton, 50g/1.76oz = 169m/185yrds

Crochet hook 2.5 mm.


Difficulty Level: Level 1 – Easy, for beginners

US crochet term:
SlSt – slip stitch
CH/s – chain/s
DC - double crochet
SK - skip
T - turn
ST/s - stitch(es)
REP - repeat

Special stitches used: Picot Stitch

Picot stitch directions: Create three chain stitches from the point in your row where you want to add the picot stitch. Insert your hook in the third chain from the hook. Yarn over and pull the yarn through the stitch and through the loop on the hook. This is one completed picot stitch.


1) A ch3 at beg of the row counts as a dc throughout.
2) The project started as a circle, the circle is finished by a slip stitch. Then the project is crocheted in rows. Finish each row with a dc placed in the 3rd ch from the previous row.
3) This Sweet Little Angel measures 3.14 inches by 3.0 inches, 8 cm by 7.6 cm.
4) You can make the Sweet Little Angel bigger with a thicker yarn or a larger hook size.


Make a magic ring.
R1: ch3 (counts as a dc), work 11 dc into the magic ring, sl st to the 3rd ch from beg  (12dc)
You will have 12 dc placed in the magic ring. It will be the head of your sweet little angel ornament.

R2: ch3 and place 1dc into the same st as ch3, 2dc in next 3 st, turn (8dc)

R3: ch3 and place 2dc into the same st as ch3, 2dc in next 6 st, 3dc in the last st, turn (18dc)

R4: ch3, rep *ch1, dc between 2 dc from previous row* rep from * to * 17 more time, place 1 dc into the last st from R3 (work a dc into the 3rd ch from the R3), turn (19dc)

R5: sl st into each next 12 st (to move to the 7th dc from the beg of the previous row)
ch3, 1dc into the ch1 sp, ch1, 2dc into the next ch1 sp,
rep *2dc into the next ch1 sp, ch1, 2dc into the next ch1 sp* from * to * one more time. Turn
You will have 6 groups of 2dc (12dc)

R6: ch3, rep *2dc into the next ch1 sp, ch1, 2dc into the same ch1 sp* from * to * two more times, place 1dc into the last st from R5 (to the 3rd ch from the previous row). Turn
You will have 3 groups of "2dc,ch1,2dc"

R7: ch3, rep *3dc into the next ch1 sp, ch2, 3dc into the same ch1 sp* from * to * two more times, 1dc into the last st from R6 (to the 3rd ch from the previous row). Turn
You will have 3 groups of "3dc,ch2,3dc"

R8: ch3, rep *7dc into the next ch2 sp* from * to * two more times, 1dc into the last st from R7 (to the 3rd ch from the previous row). 
You will have 3 groups of "7dc"

Cut the yarn. Fasten off.

Create a loop on top of the Angels head by sewing a loop to hang it.

Or create a chain on the top of the Angel, work 14 chains and the slip stitch into the stitch you started the chain.


Make the last row with picots.
R9: Make a picot (see the Special stitch section above), 3 slip stitches to move into the middle of the first groups of dc, make a picot into the 4th dc in this fist group, 3 slip stitches to move to the end of this group of dc, make a picot there.
Rep: *3 sl st, picot, 3 sl st* four more times across till you reach the end of this row.
Cut the yarn. Fasten off.
