With a larger heart for the body, and two smaller ones for wings, you can create this very cute angel wall hanging.
Approximate Time: 1 hour
These angels can be made with any colors, as I am sending one I made with reds and purples, but I don't like the wing placement so I am not submitting it. For instance, you can make one of someones fav' color or colors.
Spring angels can be made with any pastel colors, then Americana (my favorite, but you can use red/white/and blue if you want) for summer, then golds, browns, and burgundies for fall, and of course reds and greens, and any holiday colors you prefer. I have always loved blue and silver or red and gold, but just about any color of angel is still "Perfectly Heavenly".
I hope you enjoy this craft. Of all the shapes I love, I think hearts are my favorite.
So, show someone you care, even if they aren't a "significant other" with this quick and simple gift, that will cost you about .50.

Could you please be more specific as to the yarn/thread used? I get the gold lame thread, but the pink looks more like yarn. What kind, weight? The instructions look a little tricky for me, but I'll give it a go, because this is really cute.
I would be happy to. It's regular crochet thread like you would make a doily out of. I just double it for speed and being able to tie the tails in the back. The pink has gold lame' thread through it which you can get in other colors at craft supply stores. I use South Maid, Coats and Clark, and Aunt Lydias.
The pattern will be simple as soon as you get the hang of it. Just remember it has to increase by one stitch each row or it won't get wider. If you find it's too hard to get the hook through the last stitch (first stitch after you turn on previous row) don't worry. Simply make two in the same stitch you are in, so the number count is right. If you find that works best for you, you can do it that way all the time.
I hope this helps Rosebud55, and if anyone else has any questions, let me know. Sandi/PBP
I have been trying to post this all day...sorry. For some reason, it just kept loading without actually loading. My apologies.
Thanks for getting back to me. I get it now. I'll see what I can find at the crafts stores.
