Things just don't slide off crocheted coat hangers, Bless 'em. A nice idea for anyone who is the soul of order.

MATERIALS:

CLARK'S O.N.T. or d. & P. COATS PEARL COTTON, size 5, 3 balls each of White and Red for a set of 4 hangers.

Milward's Steel Crochet Hook No. 7.

Starting at one short end, with White, ch 3. 

1st Row: 3 half d c in 3rd ch from hook. Ch 2, turn. Pick up the 2 back loops of each stitch throughout. 

2nd Row: 2 half d c in 1st st (l half d c increased), half d c in next st, 2 half d c in next st (another half d c increased). Do not work over turning ch. Drop White, draw a loop of Red through, thus completing a chain st, make another ch st in Red, turn. 

3rd Row: 2 half d c in 1st st, half d c in each st across, 2 half d c in last st. Ch 2, turn. 

4th Row: Repeat 3rd Row. Drop Red, pick up White, ch 2, turn. Work 2 rows of each color, increasing 1 st at both ends of each Row, until Row measures 2 inches across. 

Next Row: 2 half d c in 1st st, half d c in each st across to last 2 sts, dec. 1 half d c-to dec. a half d c, work off  2 sts as 1; ch 2, turn. 

Following Row: Dec. 1 half d c, half d c in each st across, 2 half d c in last st. Ch 2, turn. 

Repeat last 2 rows, keeping continuity of colors, until longer side of hanger-cover measures same as hanger. Now dec. 1 half d c at both ends of each Row, until 5 sts remain. Work off these 5 sts as 1 st. 

Fasten off. Draw hook of hanger through center of crocheted piece and sew edges together, thus covering hanger. Cover 3 more hangers same as this.
