Leens Tatted Angel
This sweet little angel was tatted with perle cotton size 8 and is about 3 inches tall.  I have done many different variations with this one pattern, including adding pearl beads to the halo, placing them on the needle so they appear between the double stitches with a bit of thread looping over the top of the bead.  The skirt can be done in many different ways, with double picots, or beads added. If adding beads to the joining picots of the skirt, increase the number of stitches from 8 to 10 in the joining chains between the rows of the skirt.

Tatted and Designed by Eileen Stafford
This angel is made with Cebelia size 20 and is about 3 inches tall. I used double picots on the last row of chains.
Here is an example of the beads in the skirt and also in the halo. I changed the stitch count in the connecting chains between the rows of the skirt, from 8 to 10.  She is made with Perle cotton,   size 8.
