Spring Cleaning: Crochet Hangers!
As the weather gets warmer, I find that my closet and I are exchanging knowing glances. It’s time. The mess must be dealt with. That Spring cleaning just got sweeter, though with some stitched wire hangers.
I see you, dirty closet, and raise you some crochet cuteness! Stitch these, then hang on.
Size U.S. H (5 mm) Clover Amour Crochet Hook
Small amounts of 2 colors, worsted-weight yarn. I used Cascade 220 Superwash Effects
Clover Tapestry Needle
With main color, join yarn around hanger with a slip stitch.
Single crochet (sc) around entire hanger as shown in Instagram video below.
Take care to push stitches together firmly as you go, so that wire gets completely covered.
Join contrasting through the back loop of one of the stitches towards the end of the hanger bottom.
NOTE: Since the stitch count may vary, you;ll have to fudge this a bit. Just do what you can to make it even.
1st Row: Join yarn by pulling loop through top of 1st blanket stitch. Ch 3, sk 4, sc in next st, *ch 2, sk 4, sc; rep from * to end. Turn.
2nd Row: Ch 3, *dc in ch-2 sp, 3 dc around the post of dc just made (makes 3 dc group), sc in next ch-2 sp; rep from * ending with sc in same ch-2 sp as last 3 dc group.
Fasten off. Weave in ends.
