I love to create small angel designs which can be completed in only a few hours of work. Delta, one of my earlier designs, seemed to really speak to me that she wanted a big brother. Del is a Romani (Gypsy) name meaning 'he gives', and this spunky little boy angel has sure been giving me a lot of smiles while working on him, and I hope he does the same for you! Worked all in white, or personalized with some favorite colors, your angel can be as traditional or modern as you wish. Made in size 10 thread, he stands under 5 inches tall. A heavier weight thread, such as size 5 or 3, or baby, sport, or sock weight yarn may also be used. Increase your hook size appropriately. Angel worked in size 3 thread, he would be about 7 inches tall or so. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Angel is approximately 5 inches tall PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Aunt Lydia's Classic Crochet Thread Size 10

~Heritage Heartcraft, heirloom quality thread crochet by Cara Louise Reitbauer~ I have been crocheting since about 1974 at age 8 when my mother taught me with regular yarn and larger crochet hooks. A year or so later, she found a bag that had been her mother's which contained some gorgeous doilies her mother had made, along with some skinny crochet thread and some impossibly small steel crochet hooks. I fell in love on the spot, created my very first doily without any pattern by copying one of hers, using her hooks and her thread. I have been designing and crafting small articles such as doilies, coasters, snowflakes and angels ever since! (Although I do confess to using patterns too!) Every time I make something I feel a kinship with the grandmother I was never able to meet, and so her spirit is alive in me- all these years later, and still use her hooks, which are now over 60 years old! I've got sites all over the web!
