Leen's Tatted Angel by Eileen Stafford

Update: Yorkie Sue has identified the designer!  Her name is Eileen Stafford, and the pattern is also available on Georgia Sitez's site at  Thank you Yorkie Sue!!

Leen published this lovely angel on the now-defunct geocities in 2000, but did not give her full name - if you know it, or a current website for her, please let me know so I can update this post (and my printout of the pattern).

It's a simple but graceful angel, and lends itself to variation (she shows several in the pattern writeup).  It can easily be worked continuously by ending with the bodice instead of starting there, and using a short split chain and split ring to climb down into the skirt.

Thankfully, the pattern can still be accessed via the internet archive/wayback machine here.
