No Angel costume would be complete without a pair of angels wings!

You may add these pair of wings to any of the amigurumi animals of these similar size to Amigurumi Cat. Since we make it a wearable piece, it is easy to add it to the crochet doll. Anyway, if you prefer to attach it permanently to the doll, just put them on the back. Remember our famous Winged Unicorn that we shared a while ago? There is a crochet pattern of another type of wings, more like insect wings. You may replace her wings with these angel wings too.

About The Wings

The size of each wing is about 5″ wide. Depending on the way you style the wings; the spread ranges about 8″ to 10″ wide. It is perfect for dolls that are a foot (12″) to a foot and a quarter (15″) tall. These dimensions are for the crochet wings made from raffia yarn or light worsted yarn. If you plan to make them in different sizes, you can achieve it by using a different yarn weight. For barbie doll size, you can use crochet thread instead of yarn. For babies, kids, and adults, simply use bulkier sizes, ranging from medium to super bulky yarn.

About The Materials and Tools

As you may have noticed from the picture, we used gold raffia yarn to make the golden wings and acrylic yarn to make the white and beige wings. The yarn weight is light worsted (US) / DK (UK) / 8 ply (AUS), and we used a 2.5mm hook to crochet them. As mentioned before, you could use other yarn weights to make the sizes you want to achieve

Since we are making the wings a “wearable” piece, we added elastic cords at the back of the wings. You can see the picture of how we added the cord to the wings in the instruction section below.

About The Construction

This free crochet pattern uses five crochet stitches; chain stitch, single crochet, skip, and slip stitch. Any beginner should be able to crochet these wings without any problem. Moreover, we have detailed instructions and step by steps photos to illustration the process.

As you can see from the picture of the wings, each wing has 11 rows of “feathers”. Each “feather” is made up of 2 rounds of crocheting. To make the counting and tracking more manageable, our pattern is written so that each “feather” consists of a round of slst (A) and a round of sc st (B). Confused? Don’t worry; scroll down to the pattern and tutorial section to read the details on how to crochet angel wings. We have everything covered.

After you have finished with the crochet wings, block them with some water, adjust the shape and pin them on a padded surface. You may also iron them on low to medium heat. To make the wings stay in their shape, you may spray some fabric stiffener on them before blocking.

These Angel Wings are part of the Angel Costume, consisting of a Ruffle Dress, Angel Wings, Star Wand, and A Golden Halo.

Wings are the source of the Angels’ powers, but they symbolize protection and love to humans. As angels spread their wings, we often depict it as a sense of hope, as if telling us to stay strong and rise during stressful times.
