How beautiful this would be as a gift along with a layette for a new mom and baby, or a bride with her honeymoon nightgown. This is the kind of gift that nobody would ask for and yet everyone would be delighted to receive. It's a great way to pamper yourself or the one you love. The pattern seems easy to do, too!

I agree with Mayjo. I used to ahve a pattern for "finger" crocheting around the wire of a hanger to make a crocheted type. cannot find the pattern now. if someone has one, please let me know. thanks.
