Many, many years ago, someone gave me a set of 3 crocheted hangers. I don't remember who gave them to me or why but they are the best hangers ever. Nothing ever falls off of them. I've always thought I'd make more but never did....(I'm slow like that.)
I decided it was nuts not to make more and started on this little summer project to pretty up my closet.
There are tons of "patterns" out there but they are all basically just crocheting around hangers so if you can crochet, you can do it.
I wanted mine a bit sturdier so I held 2 together before crocheting around them. If you do this, just make sure your hangers match up in size/shape.
Some people skip the hook end but the ones I were given went to the end and have lasted all these year so I decided to follow suit. To secure the tip, I slid the last stitch up, applied a teeny bit of E6000 and then slid the stitch back down and tapped the yarn together.
I added a little picot trim at the bottom and a flower at the neck. (I found the cute little flower pattern via creativejewishmom.com's blog here.)
By the end of the summer, I hope to have most of my mismatched hangers tossed and replaced with these pretty ones instead.
