Make your own crochet Christmas ornaments with this crochet angel ornament pattern in the style of amigurumi crochet patterns. DIY Christmas crafts are the best way to create personalized Christmas ornaments as gifts or to start new traditions.
Every December after the fresh cut tree is up, I set aside an evening to gather around and unpack our family ornaments. We take turns hanging them one at a time, sharing again the familiar story behind each one. A trio of brilliantly painted wooden angels always delights. Like a little chorus of seraphim in heaven, they sing out their song, “holy, holy, holy!” I wanted to share my family’s tradition with you by designing a simple pattern with just enough charming detail to earn a place on your family’s tree for years to come.
Your angel can be made with any yarn and the appropriate hook. I like a durable sport weight yarn in bright colors. For tidy looking stitches, consider going down a size from the recommended hook. The suggested materials make an angel about 4 inches tall. Gauge is not too important for this project: you’ll just get a bigger or smaller ornament.
Choose your favorite technique for the face and music. I used a fine-tip felt pen and a red pencil for the cheeks. You can embroider features, sew on beads, or glue on felt cutouts. To hang, simply thread a scrap of yarn through the head.
It's a perfect beginner’s pattern, using only slip stitches and single crochet, with no special skills. Each ornament takes about 2 hours, so you can finish a whole choir in a couple evenings.
