    I think you could use any kind of yarn for this pattern and adjust by using the proper size hook. What a great way to use up left over skeins of yarn!

    I really like your pattern for a covered coathanger. I’m going to give it a try. I have a pattern as well, not my original pattern, but one that was passed on to me. Yours will make a nice variation. Thanks for sharing.
