Little Bobbles Angel

Image of Little Bobbles Angel Designed By Julie A. Bolduc

This little angel ornament is fun to make and would make a great addition to your angel collection. It starts at the head then goes to the bottom of the skirt. Then the wings are added on some skipped stitches on round 11. The halo is made last to top it off.

Stiffening: optional: I used Southmaid Crochet cotton which is somewhat stiff to work with anyway so I did not stiffen this at all but you can if you want to. I like a soft and supple angel on my tree when I make this style of Angel ornament. I did hair spray on the halo a bit though so it would keep it shape without being too stiff.

*Poker Stick: Use some sort of poker stick to help stuff the cotton ball into the head of the angel. I have one that was actually in my bag of polyester fiberfill. It has a narrow end that fits perfectly inside the little hole at the neck of the angel. Any poker stick will do though. You can Sharpen the end of a ¼"e; dowel down so it has a blunt point.
