Crochet Hanger Free Pattern.


Crochet Hanger Free Pattern by AnnooCrochet Designs

Some historians believe President Thomas Jefferson invented a forerunner[1] of the wooden clothes hanger.[citation needed] However, today's most used hanger, the shoulder-shaped wire hanger, was inspired by a coat hook that was invented in 1869 by O. A. North of New Britain, Connecticut.[citation needed] An employee of the Timberlake Wire and Novelty Company, Albert J. Parkhouse of Jackson, Michigan has also been credited with the invention.[citation needed], as has Christopher Cann in 1876 as an engineering student at Boston University.
