Anyway, I used DK yarn and a 3.5mm hook and this is how I made my covered hangers (written in UK terms):
- Make 13 ch in your main colour
- Row 1: 1 dc into second ch from hook, then 1 dc into each st to end, 1 ch and turn
- Row 2: 1 dc into each stitch to end, 1 ch and turn
- Continue as for Row 2 until you have 86 rows
- Work 1 row of dc all the way around to neaten the edges
- Find the centre of your crochet and thread the hanger hook through
- Dc the two long sides together and stitch the two short sides
- For the white picot edge, join yarn to the first dc, ch 1 then dc into the same st
- Ch 4 and ss into the first of these four ch *1 dc into each of the next three sts, ch 4 and ss into the first of these four ch*
- Repeat from * to * to the last picot
- Work the last picot as you have all the others, anchoring it with a ss at the end. Sew in ends.
I'm pleased with how these turned out and they're a great way to use up odd bits of yarn. I used Sublime extra fine merino dk in powderpuff (304), holiday (350) and salty (010) and for the white picot edge I used Debbie Bliss rialto dk in white (001). The hangers I bought in Ikea.
Hope all is well out there ...
