Pattern

Angel is crochet from the head downwards. Halo is crochet separately and sewn on.
All dc rounds begin with a ch 3 (1st dc) and end with a sl st in the first st of the round.

Begin by making a magic ring and crochet 6 sc. Close the ring tightly.

Rnd 1: 2 sc in each sc (= 12 sc)

Rnd 2: *1 sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc* , repeat between ** all around (= 18 sc)

Rnd 3: *1 sc in each of the next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc* , repeat between ** all around (= 24 sc)

Rnd 4-6: 1 sc in each sc

Rnd 7:*1 sc in each of the next 2 sc, sc2tog* , repeat between ** all around (= 18 sc)

Rnd 8: *1 sc in the next sc, sc2tog* , repeat between ** all around (= 12 sc)

Rnd 9: *1 sc in each of the next 2 sc, sc2tog* , repeat between ** all around (= 9 sc)

Rnd 10: 1 sc in each sc

Rnd 11: 2 sc in each sc (= 18 sc), end with a sl st

This is where I stop to put the stuffing in the head, I find it easier to do this now rather than when it's finished.
But it's optional, you can do it once the entire angel is done if you prefer that.

Rnd 12: *1 dc, ch 2* , repeat between ** all around (= 18 chain spaces)

Rnd 13: Sl st into the next chain space.
*2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc in each chain space* , repeat between ** 6 times (= one wing).
3 sc in each of the next 3 chain spaces (= body front).
Sl st into the next chain space.
*2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc in each chain space* , repeat between ** 6 times (= other wing).
3 sc in each of the next 3 chain spaces (= body back).

Rnd 14: Skip the first 6 chain spaces and make a sl st in the first sc on the front of the body.
*1 dc, ch 2, 1 dc in same stitch, skip one st* , repeat between ** until the end of the body front.
Then skip 6 chain spaces and make a sl st in the first sc on the back of the body.
*1 dc, ch 2, 1 dc in same stitch, skip one st* , repeat between ** until the end of the body back.

Rnd 15-17: Sl st into the next chain space.
*2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc in each chain space* , repeat between ** all around

Rnd 18: 2 sc in each chain space, 1 sc in each dc. Repeat all around. End with a sl st and sew in the end.

Rnd 19: Change to silver or gold yarn and crochet 1 sc in each sc all around. End with a sl st and sew in the end.

Crochet with silver or gold yarn along the wings like this:
Start with a sc in the first dc. Then crochet 1 sc in each dc and 2 sc in each chain space all they way around. Finish with a sl st in first sc and sew in the end.

Halo: Make a foundation single crochet of 18 sc and join with a sl st. Change to silver or gold yarn and crochet 2 sc in each sc all around. Sew it onto the back of the head.
