This is the LAST stitch in the #desertblossomstitchalong for 2019! I can hardly believe that this year is almost over. I hope we can end with a bang! I really love this stitch pattern. Read more to find out how to crochet the Angel Stitch!
Last year, I published a stitch called the Pansy Stitch, and everyone told me it looked like angels! I could see the resemblance a little bit, but I decided it still needed some more. This December, I decided to recreate the Pansy stitch to look even MORE like angels! 🙂
That being said, I hope you guys enjoy this stitch! It is really fun to see the angels emerge as you’re making it!

You can potentially use ANY yarn and hook for this stitch. However, here’s what I used:
- Sport Weight Yarn (I used Lion Brand Vanna’s Glamour)
- F/3.75mm hook
2-dc cluster: *YO, insert hook in ch indicated, YO and pull up a loop. YO, draw through 2 loops on hook; rep from * once more. YO, draw through all 3 loops on hook.
TR Cluster (tutorial for this stitch is included farther down): *YO twice, insert hook in next hdc, YO and pull up a loop, (YO, draw through 2 loops on hook) twice. Rep from * 2 times more, YO and draw through all 4 loops on hook.
NOTE: For a picture tutorial going along with these written instructions, be sure to view the video above! It will show you pictures to help with any tricky steps. You can pause it at any time if you need to focus in on a given step!
Fsc a multiple of 3+1 (to start with a chain stitch, you’ll need a multiple of 3+2, and then one row of single crochet).
Row 1: Ch 4, tr in next stitch. *Ch 4, work 2-dc cluster (see special sts) into 3rd ch from hook. Work TR Cluster into next three stitches (follow next five pictures for a full tutorial on this stitch). Rep from * until 2 fsc left. Ch 3, work 2-dc cluster into 3rd ch from hook, tr in last 2 fsc, turn. Note: this whole row simply alternates between 2-dc clusters and TR clusters.
Row 2: Ch 1, sc in first 2 tr. *Ch 3, sc in next TR cluster. Ch 5, sc in same tr cluster. Rep from * across all TR clusters. Ch 3, sc in last 2 tr, turn. Note: the ch-5 sps form the head of the angels!
