Happy work in progress Wednesday everyone. How are you? You okay?
I wanted to share with you today something I’ve recently finished. In collaboration with the lovely folks from Anchor Yarns, I’ve got a brand new FREE angel pattern for you.
Please allow me to introduce the Anchor Angel Amigurumi which is available to download for FREE from the Anchor website (see link below).
I used Creativa Fino 4ply, with a 3mm hook (approx US size D/3), for this project. I’ve used Creativa Fino for several projects now and really enjoy working with it. If you are not familiar with the yarn it’s 100% twisted mercerised cotton which comes in 50g balls (125m) and is perfect for making crochet toys. I also combined it with some of Anchors metallic yarn for the halo and the wings, which just added that perfect bit of sparkle!
When I finished making the angel it was actually unseasonably bright and sunny! I wanted to create a bit of a hygge type of cosy season Christmas scene to have a photo shoot with. Then I remembered that I’d bought some awesome tiny LED fairy lights from Amazon. They worked just how I wanted them too when I added them to an old coffee jar, just adding a nice bit of twinkly light.
The Anchor Angel Amigurumi pattern uses simple stitches throughout making it a great amigurumi project for a beginner. You can pick it up as a free download available directly from the Anchor Yarns website where you can just download the pattern or register for an account. It doesn’t cost anything for an account, but by signing up you’ll gain access to loads of other free patterns by other talented designers too.
The pattern is written in UK crochet terminology and I’ve linked it up on Ravelry too if you’d like to save it to your favourites on there (at the link below).
Apart from a beautiful tree topper I think she would make a great holiday gift or maybe even a table top decoration.
