Covered Crochet Clothes Hangar

Covered hangers are a fun and inexpensive way to add color to your closet.  They are practical, too.  They will keep your clothes from slipping off the hangers.

You will need:

1. Heavy cotton thread

2.  2.75 mm crochet hook

3.  A wire hanger

4.  1 1/2 -2 feet of 1/4 in. ribbon

5.  Clear nail polish or glue

For a finishing touch, ribbon is woven through the trim
A red chain lies next to a hanger 1.  Crochet a chain that is long enough to wrap loosely around the hanger.  Chain three more and turn.
 The double crocheted section is measured against the hanger 2.  Double crochet all the way across.  Measure off the section that will cover between the hook and the lower corner of the hanger.
 The crocheted section is positioned over the hanger 3.  Slip the hook between the stiches of the appropriate area.
 The hanger is now wrapped around by red crochet 4.  Slide your hook through the outer loop of the first double crochet and the first chain.  Slip stich then together.  Continue, forming a tube all the way around the hanger.  This step will take some patience.  The fit is quite tight, and manuevering your hook will be awkward in places.
The trim is added  5.  When you get back, join the edges of your tube together.  Now chain four.  Skip the first stitch and double crochet in the next stich.  *Chain one.  Skip a stitch and double crochet in the next stitch.  Repeat from * all the way across the bottom of the hanger, forming a mesh like trim.  Fasten off.
 

 6.  Weave the ribbon through the mesh.  Wrap the ends twice, and glue in place.
