Wings Get the directions for working a double triple (or treble) crochet (if needed).
*chain 5, work 5 double triple crochet in the 1st chain of the chain 5, slip stitch in the same chain as the beginning of the chain 5, repeat from * end off leaving the thread long enough to feed through the angels head and be able to create the hanging loop.
If you want to have a bead in the middle between the wings thread it on now, and secure it there.
After that is done pull the end of the thread up through the angels head.Create the loop, secure. I just wound the thread around another stitch. It didn’t need a knot. Feed this end back through the head of the angel, cut it off so it does not show.
