Crochet hangers for yourself and your friends, and for babies and children’s clothes.
No more shoulder straps sliding off and allowing your dresses or tops to fall to the floor of your cupboard and lay in a crumpled heap. No threads pulled in fine garments from being caught on a rough edge of the hanger holding them.
These covered garment holders are very functional as well as attractive, and an inexpensive gift to make. They are one of the few things that everyone, no matter what their age or lifestyle, has a use for.
They can be created from wool, synthetic yarn, nylon ribbon, or even fine crochet cotton if you prefer.
This is another excellent way to use up left over yarn. Join all the little pieces together and create a rainbow design. Decorate your designs with rosettes, bows, or crochet flowers.
There are patterns in sizes and designs to suit babies and small children as well as full size designs like the pink and purple ones shown at the top of this page, to hold adult’s clothing.
Knitted hangers are just as popular and easy to make as crochet hangers, and the patterns are just as varied. The smaller white design in the photograph is an example of knitting with a lace trim.
The smaller design worked in lemon and white is suitable for a baby. So is the knitted lace trimmed hanger, and both are fast and easy to make.
My free patterns list all instructions and materials required to get you started.
