I found this one:
Crochet Covered coat hangers

Why not crochet some covers for all those plastic hangers you have in your closet. They help protect your clothes and stop them from slipping off onto the floor. Follow the pattern and make 2 pieces. Slip each piece onto the end of the coat hanger, pull together, and overcast stitch on both sides of the hanger. Do this for the top and the bottom to get a snug fit.

Materials needed:

  • 4 ply worsted weight yarn
  • 3.5 or 3.75 mm. crochet hook
  • standard hanger
  • tapestry needle and scissors

Steps:

  • Chain (ch) 5, slip stitch (sl st) in first chain (ch) to form a ring.

  • Round 1 - Chain 3, (counts as first double crochet (dc) here and throughout), double crochet (dc) in ring, ch, (work 2 dc in ring, ch,) 3 times, join with slip stitch in top of beginning ch 3. You now have 8 dc and 4 ch spaces

  • Round 2 - sl st to ch space, ch 3, work 1 dc, ch 1, 2 dcs in same ch-sp. Shell (sh) is made *work sh in next ch-sp, repeat from * around, join with sl st in top of beginning ch-3, you should have 4 shells (sh)
    Notes: special stitch shell (SH) work 2 dcs, ch 1, 2 dc in space (sp) indicated
    Some hangers may need adjustment from 11 sts. (some a couple more, some a couple less)

  • Round 3 - sl st to ch-sp of next SH, ch 3, complete sh in same change space, ch 1, *work SH in ch-sp of next SH, ch 1, repeat from * around, join with sl st in top of beginning ch 3, you should have 4 shells

  • Round 5 to 13 Repeat rnd 4, adding one more ch to the chns between the first and second SH and the third and fourth SH on each round for a total of 11 chns in round 13

  • Fasten off and weave loose ends. Repeat for second half, slip each half on opposite ends of hangers and stitch together at center of each matching shell.
