Joy - Crochet Angel
"JOY is the fourth crochet angel in my Angel Series. She is the most detailed of the set (so far) - with a double layered skirt with ruffles. Photo support is included in the post. She stands by herself and you do not need to stiffen the finished fabric - she is crocheted with worsted weight/medium weight yarn. She makes a lovely tabletop decoration, you can add a length of ribbon (or a crochet chain) to use her as a tree ornament or decoration in your home. She will also work atop your Christmas Tree as a Tree Topper. If you are struggling to keep her in place try using a piece of paper towel roll or toilet paper roll inserted beneath her skirt to provide a sturdier base than the flimsy bendy tree wire. Or make a cone from paper or plastic to sit beneath her skirt on top of the tree (or even cut the base of a plastic water bottle and use the top bit without the cap under her skirt!). I’ve also considered sewing a small bell under her skirt to make her ‘chime’. I have used Bowdabra Bow Wire - Color Gold and 2.25 mm (B) crochet hook for her halo but you can easily substitute a pipe cleaner for this purpose."

This angel is crocheted with Red Heart super saver and stands on its own without any stiffner. The double layered dress gives it extra thickness which allows it to do this. It can be used as a table top decoration or for a tree topper. Add a bell or a light underneath for a special treat.
