Make it, love it, share it!
A few months back, my friend Courtney asked me if I could crochet her some hangers. You know, the kind from Yesteryear. The kind that keep your tank tops from slipping down into the shoe abyss below.
Well, after researching a bit, I've decided this is the best method for crocheting a hanger. And, I forgot to mention: I LOVE these hangers. I'm keeping them for myself. Sorry, Courtney!
Here's how to do it:
Worsted weight yarn
You will use a double strand of yarn for this project. Pull from 2 skeins at once, or pull from both ends of the same skein as I did.
Use a small piece of duct tape to secure the ends of the yarn to the end of the hanger hook as shown.
Wrap yarn around hook and begin to single crochet around the wire.
It's a bit awkward at first, but you will get the hang of it. Pun intended.
To complete each single crochet:
Place your hook under the wire, hook the yarn, then pull it under the wire to the front. Yarn over and pull through both loops.
Continue to single crochet down one side of the hanger.
Make sure you are keeping your stitches pushed close together so you won't see the wire.
When you get around to the top again, cut your yarn, leaving an 8-inch tail. Pull loops out.
Wrap one strand around the neck of the hanger to meet the other strand. Tie a bow in a double-knot.
