This cover is worked over a wooden hanger that has been first covered in strips of stretch knit [t-shirt] material. The strip of material is wound around the wood [after having removed the hook], and secured with a needle and thread.
The lace trim is worked into the pattern, and the finished cover is sewn with a darning needle threaded with the same nylon yarn as you’ve been working in.
This knitted cover is designed to fit a smaller wooden holder suitable for baby or children’s clothes.
