Thank you for your interest in the Christmas
Angels project. The angels first appeared in Fleet last year, when the shopping
area along Fleet Road and the Key at Elvetham Heath were found to be adorned
with hundreds of knitted angels with a label attached inviting the finder to
“Please take me, I’m free”. Over 1,100 angels were taken home and many positive
and touching comments were received, including offers of wool if it was going
to be done again. In response, the project is running again for 2017 and we are
aiming to have 4,000 angels to give away.
You are very welcome to join in, and you can
help in the following ways:
- By giving wool – you can drop this off at the shop, any type or colour
- By making angels – you can download the pattern
below to knit or crochet and also the labels to tie on. If you need wool, you
can ask at the shop.
Please download patterns and labels from below :-
PLEASE NOTE: if you print out the labels from
the PDF, you will need to set the printing to landscape. They need to be printed
double-sided and, if you use a duplex printer, you will need to set it to print
on both sides and flip on the short edge. This is to ensure that the writing on
the back lines up with the pictures on the front. The sheets then need to be
laminated and have a hole punched to fasten to the angel with a piece of wool. You
can also get prepared labels from the shop.
