EZ’s angels have a colour pattern around the hem, but I felt that with fluffy white yarn I didn’t need to have colourwork as well. I used the same number of stitches and didn’t really have any idea what size she would turn out to be, but she’s just under 6 inches high. She isn’t big enough to become a hat after Twelfth Night. Perhaps I should knit her big sister and I could wear her as a hat.
Her little arms are i-cord and worked perfectly. I made up the wings because I thought she ought to have some, and I only needed to add blue eyes to her face because the yarn obligingly placed a pink bit at her mouth (that wouldn’t have happened if I’d tried, I promise).
Her hair can be smoothed down but I like her best with it a bit wild – in some of the dimly lit photos she looked more like the Corpse Bride than a Christmas Tree Fairy.
