Crochet Hanger

Hello. Here's a little 'how to' for the crochet hangers I've designed after being inspired by the ones in Lucy's Japanese craft book.

Firstly you need a wooden coat hanger. You then need to crochet a rectangle as long as the hanger and wide enough to cover the front and back joining at the top. Mine was 12 chain wide and 75 rows long in double crochet (UK) using double knitting yarn and size 3.50mm hook.

Then crochet down the centre, 6 chain and then a double crochet to join into the base fabric.

I folded it in half longways and held it like this.


When you have completed the first row, chain 4 and turn, attach with a double crochet through the first chain space.
Then crochet 3 chain then slip stitch through a flower petal, chain 3 and then double crochet through the next chain space.

I alternated a flower loop with a plain loop.

When the trim is finished fold the cover in half length ways and start to join the two sides together from one end using slip stitches on the short ends and changing to double crochet across the long top edge.

When you get half way stop and slot the hanger into the cover and then carry on joining.

Nice neat edge.

The leaf was made by making 8 chain and then working along one side and then back down the other. Each leaf I made was slightly different so just do what you feel using tall treble stitches at the fat end and small double crochet down to slip stitches at the pointy end. (I did say it wouldn't be an exact pattern!)

For the flowers make a loop around your finger and draw the yarn through with your hook ready for your first chain.

For the flowers on the trim chain 4 and then slip stitch back into the loop to create a petal. Do this 4 or 5 times. To finish pull the little end of yarn and this will draw the centre of the flower up tightly.

I made the three flowers on the front decoration a little larger by making the petal chains a little longer.

Sorry it's not an exact pattern, but I'm sure you'll be able to follow it. Any questions, just leave a comment or email me and I'll do my best to try and make it clearer.
.
I have to say, I liked the look of Lucy's Japanese crochet book so much that I had a little look on the interweb and chose one for myself. My first ever eBay purchase... and it's luuuverly!
I just hope I can follow the instruction diagrams!
Maybe we'll take a little peek next time.

Till then

I've been wanting to making some lovelies just like this for sometime now.
Thank you so much for thinking of us. I'll remember every time I use my beautiful crocheted hangers.

Thank you so much MarmaladeRose! I have been trying to figure out how to crochet all the wooden hangers I inherited from my great uncle for my children for Christmas, but can not read patterns -- must see it. Your tutorial is excellent!! Got it from a friend at work who actually teaches knitting in classes. I have all I can do to handle 1 tool at a time =D

Tea with Prudence said...

Hi Fi, (from another Fi)

Ive just been rummaging through your blogworld while I drank my morning cup of tea (well, two cups actually....)

It was such an inspirational pleasant time.

I have found this tutorial for the coat hangers, and, I am going to try and make one this afternoon (first, I have to earn the time by doing some washing and a bit of cleaning)

Cheers
Fi

Campfire said...

I bookmarked this post and have just crocheted two rectangles. Couldn't remember how to do the lacework on the bottom so have just had another look. Too late for tonight but will have another go tomorrow.

Yours look so pretty. I don't have a blog so can't post when I've finished them.

Wooden Coat Hangers

Grandma Sue said...

I have been crocheting covers for hangers for decades and love them. Am having trouble finding a source for hangers like the one you covered, the old fashioned wood ones that are about 1/4 inch thick. Do you have a source? Thanks much.

Grandma Sue said...

I just located an online source for the old fashioned wood hangers for anyone that is looking for a source. Try nahanco.com. Happy crocheting!
