I've been crocheting since I was a little girl. Since then I've designed for magazines and offer free patterns at my site.

Crochet Angels

Crochet angels are a favorite of mine. The free angel patterns on this page are quick to crochet. Many people collect angels and use them at any season. The angels are crocheted with thread using anything from worsted weight cotton yarn to delicate angels using size 10 thread.

Here you'll find links for free angel patterns that include angel pins, an angel doll, tree ornaments, angel tree toppers, angel towel hangers, a crocheted dishcloth and more. They make a nice Christmas gift too. Don't forget to crochet a few for neighbors, friends and family. A nice gesture is crocheting the flat ones to put in Christmas cards.

It's not hard to see that angels are a popular item when you see all of the free patterns available online. Just click on the blue titles to find the free patterns.

For this pattern you will need a Fibercraft Air Freshener Doll. The pattern is crocheted with bedspread weight cotton.

The Angel Bell was designed in honor of Grandmothers. She used worsted weight yarn to design the bell and stuffed it with polyester stuffing.

The pretty crochet ornament is crocheted with worsted weight yarn, so should be quick to make. She suggests using your imagination and creating something other than an ornament.

This is a pretty dishcloth pattern, but is almost too pretty to use as a dishcloth. It is crocheted with cotton worsted weight yarn. The finished project is 11 1/2" tall. I'm tempted to use the pattern as a potholder that just hangs on the wall to add to my kitchen d├ęcor and never actually use it.

I like to add things like this with my Christmas cards for special people on my list. The bookmark would work well for any occasion though.

The angel towel holder is an extra quick and easy project. The free pattern used worsted weight cotton yarn.

The towel holder is a quick and easy project and you could make one for all of your friends and still have time to crochet your other Christmas projects. It is crocheted with worsted weight cotton thread and a size G crochet hook.

The Heavenly Angel is offered by the JPF Crochet Club. It is crocheted in 3 different parts that are later hot glued together. Crochet thread is used in the project.

Donna's Crochet Patterns presents the Icicle Angel Ornament. The angel is crocheted with South Maid thread and a size 7 crochet hook.

The Little Bobbles Angel needs to be downloaded as a PDF file or you can click on the HTML version and view it online and print. It is offered by the JPFun Crochet Club. The angel is crocheted with thread and is created from the head down. Wings are added later.

The cute little angels that hang from the tree are available as a free download at Ravelry. They were designed by Marike van Loo.

This cute lollipop angel cover was designed by A Handmade Gift is a Beautiful Thing. The angel slips over a Tootsie Roll pop. It is crocheted with white Super Saver yarn which is a worsted weight yarn. If you have scraps around, this pattern won't take very much yarn.

Pearl Knit-Cro-Sheen was used to crochet this pretty angel to place on your tree. The difficulty level is rated Easy/Medium, so most crocheters should be able to complete it.

This is a vintage pattern that is extra quick and easy. Also included on the page is a Santa.

The small angel pattern is offered by Around the Crochet Table. You will need #10 crochet thread and a size 7 steel crochet hook. This is another great project to make with just leftover thread.

There are no other words for this angel except beautiful. The angel is crocheted with crochet cotton and a size 6 crochet hook. You'll also need stuffing and glue to complete the project.

The pattern is for the advanced crocheter, so if you are a beginner you probably shouldn't attempt it. Southmaid cotton was used and a size 6 crochet hook. This pattern is really pretty.

      Each of these angels were created by different artist. You can use the vintage way of doing this by using starch or sugar water. There are improved products at the craft stores.

      Question : What was used to stiffen the angels? Thanks

      Lizzie, I think that may have been in an old Crochet World magazine. If I run across it, I'll share where to find it. I found the photo at Morgue Files. I wonder if you can contact the person that shared it and find out where to get the pattern.

      Hi, the angel tipping on the tree is the pattern I'm searching for. Any chance you were able to find it? Thanks. Love some of these others as well, but trying to match an angel my mom already has.

      Hi Barbara Kay! I found your site through my stats today while updating some tags - Just wanted to say thanks for the link!

      (I know it says no promoting, so I won't drop a link, but since you mentioned angels are a favorite, then you might want to stop by for the pattern I posted today!)

      Arlene, If you finish the towel holder, you should try to tackle a few more projects. Some of these aren't as hard as they look.

      I'm happy I was able to find something you are interested in trying. Thanks for commenting.

      Voted up, useful and interesting. I think I have enough skills and can manage to make the Angel Towel Holder. It would look great with the woven dishtowels I am making. Bookmarked! Thanks!
