Free Crochet Mini Angel Pattern



I'm so excited to share our 4th and last pattern in our Christmas in July series! 

Meet Anna the Angel, she measures about 7 inches tall and works up just as quickly as our previous patterns.

For this pattern you will want to be familiar with changing colors, working in a magic circle, and using invisible decreases. You can find a mini tutorial with helpful photos for each of these in our Tips to Amigurumi page!

Anna has a few more parts to sew than the other patterns in this series but she's definitely worth the extra steps! Her body and head are made as one piece (yes!) and we will be sewing her arms, wings and hair.

Feel free to change the colors to your liking or even to resemble the little girl you'd like to make her for! Exclude the bun in her hair and eyelashes for a great boy version too!

While designing this series of patterns I took your requests from the group to keep them small. They all range from 6-8 inches tall (Anna measures about 7 inches). Difference in tension may result in slightly taller or shorter animals but they should still be the perfect size for stuffing stockings this Winter!

Materials - 

  • Size 4 worsted weight yarn (50g of white, 25g of skin color; small amount of accent color for the dress and color of choice for hair)
  • 3.5 mm crochet hook (Here are the hooks I use!)
  • 9mm safety eyes
  • Crochet/embroidery thread for eyelashes and smile
  • Scissors
  • Tapestry needle (Bent tips work great for amigurumi!)
  • Stuffing

Abbreviations - US terminology

MC- Magic circle

SC- Single crochet

SC INC- Single crochet increase

INV DEC- Invisible decrease

DC – Double crochet

BLO – Back loops only

Sl st – Slip stitch

St(s)- Stitch(es)

NOTES -

- Slowly stuff as you go, you want it to be firm but not stretched. You will be working in the round; I like to use a stitch marker at the beginning of each round.

- The body and head will be made as one piece.



Nose –
We will be adding the facial features just before closing the head. You will want to cut a strand of about 6 inches of your skin color and set aside.

Note: Here is where we will add the facial features before we start closing the head. Insert your safety eyes between rounds 34 and 35; 4 stitches apart. Optional: Add eyelashes before securing the backs of the eyes.

Using the piece of yarn set aside earlier, pass through 2 stitches centered between the eyes to form the nose.

Assembly –

1. First, sew your arms onto the body centered with your facial features at round 22. I angled mine slightly forward and sewed the hands together.

2. Next, we will attach the hair cap and bun piece. Sew on the hair cap first. Center the bun onto the top/back portion of the hair cap adding stuffing as you go. Hair Tie - With color of choice make a chain to fit around the bun piece. Our tension may differ resulting in a higher or lower number of chains, for reference my chain was 22.

3. Lastly, sew your wings centered onto the back of your angel. I sewed along the bottom and up each side by half an inch.



Your mini angel is complete! I hope you had a blast making this pattern. Let me know if you have any questions with this pattern or any of my other patterns, I would be happy to help!

  1. Hi Stephanie, These are all adorable. Our crochet/knit group makes afghans and toys for Christmas for Miller's Children's Hospital in Long Beach, California. I was wondering if you'd give us permission to share these patterns with our group of about 20 woman who all crochet for charity. If you would permit it, I could send it via email to all of them and put it on our private FB page. Thanks so much for creating these lovelies!!
