What was your inspiration?
I love snowflakes and try to incorporate them into designs whenever possible. Creating a snowflake angel is a project I had wanted to do for a long time.
What are you most proud of?
I am so pleased with the way this angel 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 can also be used as a centerpiece!
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 written in U.S. terms.
