Nazareth Angel is a beaded Christmas ornament or tree topper. The body is worked in the round from the bottom up, with the beads added as you go with a crochet hook. The wings are worked flat and tied to the body. A tutorial for beading with a crochet hook is included.

Yarn: You will need approximately 70 yards of a fingering-weight wool or wool blend for best results. Yarns which are lofty and hold their shape well without sagging are recommended. Another weight of yarn may be substituted as long as it is thin enough to accommodate the beads.
