I designed these knit angel wings for Project Robby’s Angel Wings Drive. During the month of July, they hope to raise 500 knit and crocheted angel wings for preemie babies. Check out their Facebook page for more information.

Their last drive was a huge success with well over 100(I think the total was actually over 400) angel wings!

Please note that I have listed the materials I used and my gauge and finished measurements, however you may use any size knitting needles or yarn weight for your desired size.

Slip 1 Purl wise: This just means to put your yarn in front, like you would with purling, and slip the stitch as if to purl. Then you would put the yarn in back and knit the rest of the round.
