For those of you who may have missed my post back in July about the release of my very first crochet pattern here are a couple of photos of them.
And here’s a brief explanation from my Prosperity Angels page on the Blessing Angels site of the symbolism that is worked into the skirt and wings of the Angel:
“From ancient times to the present, wheat has been a symbol of abundance and prosperity.
A sheaf of wheat consisting of three heads of wheat makes up the skirt of the Angel. And each of the Angel’s wings is a single head of wheat.
Traditionally Angels are dressed all in white and as you can see they work up beautifully using #10 white crochet cotton. Gold is another symbol of abundance and prosperity that can be traced back to antiquity. When the Angel is worked in gold metallic crochet cotton, the symbolism of both the wheat and gold combine to make a gorgeous Angel that sparkles when touched by sunlight.”
If you or someone you know likes to crochet… these would make great Christmas gifts for family and friends. After all, it is now exactly two months until Christmas.
They would also be great items to sell at craft fairs or through your Etsy shop. Included in the pattern is a brief explanation of the symbolism of the Angels that could be printed out and attached to the angels when gifting or selling.
