Crochet Baby Hangers

Over the weekend I was in need for a quick crocheted gift to send off to a friend who just had a baby. I’ve made a whole bunch of these hangers for my own clothes using the pattern on Dottie Angel’s website but I obviously needed a smaller one for the wooden baby hangers I’ve bought at HEMA.

After some puzzling, I’ve made an alternative pattern for the smaller hangers.

Click here to download the pattern.

You basically make a front and a back and you crochet them around the hanger using a slip stitch in a different colour. It looks complicated but it’s really simple, trust me.

They make such good presents as we all need to have hangers for our clothes.

These are all bundled up and off to their new owner.

    I love these hangers Yvonne, the colours are gorgeous. When my children were little, now 18 & 12, I collected vintage & retro coat hangers and used some to display their clothes around their bedrooms. Instant styling trick!

    Very cute! These will be my next project. What size needle and what yarn did you use to make these fit the hema hangers?

        Thanks! I’ve got some left over that I bought from you for a baby blanket, I think you just gave me the perfect idea for what to do with that. Off to hema today – any excuse 🙂

    One of the first things I learnt to crochet were coat hanger covers. I made some for a friend while staying at her place a couple of years back and she has recently told me that her husband keeps knicking the coat hangers for his clothes as they dont leave an indentation in the sholders. Looks like I will have to make some more.
    You are right though, everyone needs coat hangers 🙂
