Project Instructions

  1. Glue the end of one color yarn to any point on the hanger. Allow glue to dry.

  2. Wrap yarn once around the hanger from front to back to create a loop, then pass the yarn underneath the loop and pull to tighten; repeat this step 4 more times. Apply a small amount of glue to the hanger at the last loop made.
  3. Wrap a different color of yarn once around the hanger from front to back to create a loop, then pass the yarn underneath the loop to form a knot, pull to tighten; repeat this step 4 more times. Apply a small amount of glue to the hanger at the last loop made.
  4. Continue in this way, making 5 wraps with the first color and 5 wraps with the second color alternately until hanger, including hook, is covered.
