Thanks for the Angel Bookmark pattern. This will be a perfect gift for a friend of mine who collects Angels.
Your crochet patterns are unbelievable and beautiful and fun. I am a beginner crocheter and also having problems with the angel. If I do the first twist, both wings end up on the same side, if not one wing is backwards. I have MUCH problems reading directions. Can you help?
Thank you for considering this request and for sharing your wonderful patterns.
thanks so much.

Hi wanted to say thank you for a lovely pattern. I have made two and as a beginner in crochet I managed no problem-even the twist :-) I have posted a picture on my facebook page with your name as designer. Many thanks x
Thank you! :-)
