Crocheted Clothes Hangers

Stash bust plus repurpose crappy wire hangers from the dry cleaners by crocheting over them. They look cute and will keep your clothes from slipping to the floor.

  1. Attach the yarn to the hanger to one side of the hook by reaching under the hanger and drawing up a loop. Yarn over with both the loose and working and end and draw through.

  2. Continue single crocheting around the hanger, putting your crochet hook under the hanger like it was the loops of your crochet work. 
  3. Crochet up and around the hook, and fasten off.
  4. Use a bit of hot glue to secure the yarn from sliding off the end of the hook.
  5. Cut about eight inches of yarn, and tie a bow around the base of the hook.
