Turn square so that the corner with the tail is at the bottom, forming a diamond. Fold the opposing corner down to form a triangle. Putting fold at the top, place behind angel body so that the fold lines up with the top of the neckline. Using a small button of your choice, join wings to angel body.
Skipping stitches at the body’s neckline, join coordinating thread color (used for wings) with an sc in sc on ring, leaving a 4 inch tail. Ch 1, sc in next sc. Continue ch 1, sc in next sc around to where the ring meets the neckline on the other side. FO, leaving a 4 inch tail.
Working on back of angel, Using 4” tails and a needle, run thread through a couple stitches on back on wings and then up through a couple stitches on head. Do this on both sides. This will secure the stitches and also give the head and wing area a more finished look.
