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.
