Crochet Bead Stopper for Clothes Hangers

by M. J. Joachim

Step 1:  Thread a yarn needle with a ball of yarn. Leave a very long tail. Sew through center and around bead, as many times as you possibly can. Make it extremely tight, until your needle simply can’t go through the center even one more time.

Step 2:  Tie a knot with the loose end. Make your knot large and keep it as close as possible to the top of your bead.

Step 3:  Place bead on tip of hanger and secure, with knot at very tip of hanger.

Step 4:  Pull knot tail down toward hanger, so you can crochet around it. Pull it tightly, which helps pull the bead more tightly over the tip of your hanger.

Step 5:  Single crochet around hanger. Join and finish off, when you get all the way around. Weave in loose ends.
Until next time, happy crocheting!
