    What about using the t-shirt yarn? Or one of the flat yarns like linguine?

    Thank you very much for this post. I inherited a few balls of Nylotex and couldn’t remember how to do the hangers. Now I can get right to it.

    Thanks again.

    Thank you so much for posting these directions. My late grandmother used to make these all the time and we have a bunch that are coming undone. I could not for the life of me figure out how to fix them and now I can! Now I can fix them all and keep her legacy going!

    I had the same problem as Maeko, with hangers coming undone, so I was grateful to discover your pattern and tidy them up. Once I had the 4 braids under control I merrily covered the hanger. Then I noticed it was a different pattern – the original had been stripes like a barber’s pole !!! I didn’t care, the hangers were tidy now, and could be used again. Thank you very much.

    My late grandmother and I would make these together. It’s so great to find this pattern again! I’ve been looking for more of this type of material but I have no idea what it’s called, anyone know?

    I always made these with my grandmother back in the 60’s we used 2 colors of rug yarn. Back then we used wire coat hangers but I’m going to try using the plastic ones we have now. Thanks for reminding me.
