|Here are some details about my project:|
|Style||Retro / Vintage, Holiday, Cute, Traditional, Classic|
What materials did you use? 200 yds. (183 m) White cotton crochet thread, size 10; a size 7 (1.65 mm) steel crochet hook; and stitch markers. Additional materials for stiffening include: manila file folders, clear contact paper, foam-core board, small amount of stuffing, fabric stiffener, paper towel, plastic wrap, and straight pins. Optional materials for table stand include: 3/16" diameter dowel rod, 4" circular wooden plaque, 2 16 mm wooden beads with 3/16" hole in center, glue, and white paint.
What are you most proud of? I am so pleased with the way this turned out. The angel has wings and a halo made of snowflakes; and the skirt is created using a snowflake-like design. I am also very happy with the table stand I created so the angel could be used as a centerpiece, too!
What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you love thread crochet, this is a great project for the intermediate crocheter. Instructions are also included to make the form to stiffen the angel and to create the optional table stand. The finished height is 11-1/2" tall. The pattern is available for $3.50 and is written in U.S. terms.
