Collect a little plastic hanger (mine was 25cm long and 4cm high, not considering the hook)
and grab some yarn to start with and a hook
attach the yarn with the hitch called "Lark's head"(check on the official boy scout handbook....eh!eh!eh!)
now you can start to crochet, using a simple stitch : single crochet!
As you go on with your work, remember to push your stitches closer one to another, so that you don't leave any space in the between, ok? Perfect!
Maybe you would like to know how to do a single crochet in this situation....well, I'll show you right now!
You have the working yarn in the back of your hanger
with your hook in the front, wrap the yarn around it
so, pass the wrapped yarn through the loop that you have on the hook
then, pass the hook in the back of the hanger and wrap the yarn around it
pull the yarn through the loop on your hook
You have just to repeat this pattern all the way around the hanger!
Now, if you want to weave in the ends during your crocheting, put the tail in a tapestry needle
then pass the needle under the stitches (in the back of your work)
and pull out the needle with the thread at the point you prefer and cut
You can change colour whenever you like
and go on as I told you before!
to add a new colour, join the new one to the last loop of the previous one, wrapping your hook with the new colour and pull it trough the loop
restart to follow the pattern as before!
and go on and on.....!!!
at a certain point you'll reach the hook of the hanger
where you'll change the direction of your work!
and you'll arrive to the tip of the hanger hook
weave in all the tails : TA-DAH!!!
not finished yet....not for me!!!
So, I collected some embellishments ....
and I've attached them to the hanger....
you can use your hanger as a decoration for your room or any other place that suites you!!!
See you soon, xxxx
