cro angel 1 0314



I am hoping that my readers can help me and a friend discover the pattern origin for these three cute little angels.  They are probably fairly old, but I’m sure someone will recognize them.

cro angel 2 0314

To make it worth your while, I’ll send a fantastic new crochet book to the first person to identify each of them and send a link to a book, pattern, or magazine so that we can obtain the pattern(s).  This giveaway must be open only to those within the United States of America due to potentially large mailing cost of three books to possible foreign winners.  Sorry ;-(

cro angel 3 0314

This ‘contest’ will be open until Midnight CDT, Tuesday, April 15, 2014.  That’s tax day in the US so everyone can remember it easily.

So, be an Angel and help us find the patterns for these angels.  One entry per person.  If one person is the first to identify more than one of the angel patterns, that winner will receive only one book.  The book will be given to the second person posting the origin of the pattern.  Make sense?  I hope so!  Only one book per winner.

To more easily identify which angel you are attempting to identify, I am designating them like this:

The one at the top on the card is #1;

Tthe one in the middle with the red ribbon is #2;

Aand the bottom two with the pink ribbons are #3.

Be sure to indicate in your entry which of the angels (by #) you are attempting to identify the pattern source for.

For verification purposes, please post your ZIP CODE alone with your entry.

    #1 – This vendor sells the pattern for this pin here: http://www.etsy.com/listing/88618281/crochet-angel-lapel-pin-pattern

    #2 – The picture was originally posted in 2007 but her last post was in 2009. However, the OP mentions that her online crochet group (scroll halfway down the page), through their Busy Crocheting Angel Project, sent her this angel. Perhaps the OP can still be contacted for further information about her crochet group and the angel project:


    #3 – Eludes my Google searches for the original source image.

    #3 – I did not find your pattern but did find the Angel at this link :
    and hopefully from there you can obtain further information the information is from 2007.
    Also this link could be it but the picture is not real clear to my eyes???
    Hope these help out

    I believe I have pinned all three of these angels to my board titled “angels crocheted and such”. #1) I believe is titled Angel Ornament by Beth Parsons, http://www.heartfeltangels.com/AngelOrnaments.html
    #2) I believe is by Irene Duquette 10/2001
    #3) Robbie’s Angel Pin by Freddie Short copyright 2001

    This pattern seems the closest to #2 after a pretty extensive search using many different search engines. Hope this helps, but I do like to collect angel patterns and in my search have collected a few, lol. Here is the pattern I found: http://www.crochetnmore.com/littleangelornament.htm

    Don’t have the exact pattern for #1 but have a very similar pattern from a old book, probably from the 70′s. Willing to share.


  10. Beth Walsh on March 24, 2014 9:13 am

    I found all three on my Pinterest site Elizabeth Walsh, board “crochet angels and such”.
    Angel #1) I believe to be Angel Ornament by Beth Parsons – website
    Angel #2) I believe to be by Irene Duquette @ 19/2001 – website
    Angel #3) I believe is by Freddie Short titled “Robbie’s Angel” – website
    I hope this helps. My zip code is 38572

    #2 still not found. Tried the Tricotine blog, but no pattern there. Tried going to the busy crocheting group, but have to join and it’s a reserved group. Sorry. Still looking.

    This is Robbie’s Angel pattern, copyrighted in 2001. A large pearl has been added for the head. I found it on Pintrest, I saved the pattern. http://www.heartmadeblessings.org/patterns/robbiesangel.asp. I couldn’t get it to come up from this site, that’s why I saved it!
