How to Crochet Scrubbies Shaped Like Angel Wings

Sometimes, happy accidents (we call them serendipitous events) happen, and this new design is one of those! I started out designing something completely different and then saw that I'd made an angel wing! I loved it, and it has given me many ideas for new designs using these wings! This pattern is easy enough for a beginner, yet still fun for an expert.

They Make Useful, Pretty Gifts

At about 3.5 by 4.5 inches, it's a great size for a face scrubbie. Make a stack of them, crochet a foot-long chain, and run the chain through the center holes to tie them together with a bow as a pretty gift set (or to keep them together in the wash!). You can also include them in a greeting card for a sweet surprise.

What You'll Need

  • Sugar n' Cream or any other cotton worsted weight yarn, in your choice of color
  • Crochet hook size G or preferred hook

You can use different yarns, such as scrap yarns or threads, and get good results! Just make sure to keep them similar in weight and thickness to prevent throwing off the pattern.

I am making an afghan for a new great granddaughter. I will be using these as part of a granny square. As you can see by my name, I collect anything and everything with angels. Thank you.

I found your page today while looking for patterns and saw your Angel Wing Scrubbie Free Pattern. WOW...they are very nice and I'll be making some for gifts. I like them much better than the round ones as it looks like you can hold on to them better. I love angels so they naturally caught my eye. Thanks for sharing your pattern!
