  4. Just watched your video of your angel air-freshener cover. In your written instructions you forgot to mention that you were supposed to skip loops on round 4 of the dress. I am in the middle of trying to make the angel as I think she is cute. Darlene

  8. Kristen,
    Thank you very much. I will share your link on my FaceBook page.

  9. Just wondering why this, crochet dress titled as air freshener.. know why???

  10. Makepurple, that is what I named it. I made it to fit an air freshener cover. The video shows the measurements in the first few minutes.

  11. I made one yesterday for my grandmother in honor of my late grandfather. It was simply beautiful! I used an "I" hook for worsted weight thread.

    I'm making one right now with your pattern, but with double crochet and she's turning out beautiful as well.

    Thank you so much for this pattern.

  12. Love this! It works up so easy and so pretty! I made mine bigger and she is going to top our Christmas tree this year. I liked it so well, I made my parents one too. Thanks for the great pattern! You taught me how to crochet! Thanks!

  13. In round one of the wings, in the video you are DC, Ch1, DC, but in the written it's all just 11 DC.
    love this pattern
