CO

 

Cut the tail 3” and tie around middle of wings, this creates the shape.

 

Sew onto back of your angel, making sure the curved part of the wing is at the top.

 

Arms:

 

I cast on 3 stitches and knitted for about 4” or until it was a decent length to make arms for the angel.

 

Sew onto your angel, once sewn on, sew the 2 edges of the arms at the front of the angel together or just leave. Add a halo, either a yellow circle of yarn or a bead garland. You can sew on a decoration between the angel’s hands. I chose a button but a star or flower would look lovely too.

New month, new cause!

A new month means a new cause to knit for! this month’s cause is Angel Memories (found on Facebook), the lovely Shelly is donating tiny items to a specific hospital each month, no matter how many groups there are who supply hospitals with donations, they are always sadly in need at some point.

The first item I am knitting for Angel Memories is a little purple hat (as decided by my husband). Tiny hats are, to me, the simplest item to knit, I love knitting them! Each one can be made so different by following the same pattern, the possibilities are endless!

Welcome to the Miss Lizzy’s Knits Blog!

Hi everyone!

Welcome to the Miss Lizzy’s Knits blog. I’ve set up the blog to go alongside my facebook page in order to share patterns and links easily. Knitting is a passion of mine and I’m always in awe of the beautiful creations that I come across, it’s amazing how a length of yarn can be transformed into something amazing!

I’ve recently discovered the wonderful creation “knit-in-lace” or “eyelet lace” as it is also known as it’s such a gorgeous finishing touch that I don’t know why I’ve never tried it out before. It made a gorgeous addition to a knitted crib (measuring 5 inches long) which I made as a donation to Upon Butterfly Wings. I have created a pattern for it which will be up once I know it is suitable and that there’s no mistakes in pattern!

Happy knitting!
