How to Choose the Right Crochet Hook?
Choosing a crochet hook can be a daunting task, especially if you are a beginner. There are only two items that are absolutely necessary to make a crochet project. The crochet hook is the most important tool, followed by yarn or string. It is designed to catch or grab hold of the yarn in order to make various stitches. Crochet hooks come in various sizes and materials. Most are made of wood, plastic, aluminum or steel. A rule of thumb to remember when choosing the right crochet hook is to fit the hook to the yarn--the thicker the yarn the larger the crochet hook, and the thinner the yarn, the smaller the crochet hook. Here are some additional things to consider.
- Size. Always check your pattern for the recommended size crochet hook to use. Patterns published in recent years usually call for aluminum or plastic crochet hooks. Older patterns tend to recommend steel ones. Aluminum and plastic crochet hooks are sized by letters (A to Q), and steel ones are sized by numbers (14 to 00). When choosing a crochet hook that is letter-sized, remember that the lower the letter the thinner the hook will be. The reverse is true for the number-sized crochet hooks; the higher the number the thinner the hook.
- Cost. Plastic hooks can be purchased individually or as part of a set. They tend to be less expensive than steel or aluminum ones so it's a good idea to buy a full range of sizes to ensure you have the right one for the project you are making. If you're not ready to invest in a complete set of crochet hooks, consider purchasing a starter set that includes C, G, and H hooks. Crochet hooks are easy to find. Most yarn and craft stores or department stores that have a craft section sell crochet hooks.
- Test. The easiest way to tell if you are using the best sized hook for your project is to test how the yarn handles as you make a few trial stitches. If the yarn tends to split as you pull it through the hook or if you have trouble catching it with the hook, then try a larger size crochet hook. On the other hand, if your stitches are too loose, you can switch to a smaller hook. In any event, it's a good idea to make a sample patch by working two to three rows with the hook suggested in your pattern; then change to a larger or smaller hook and work two to three more rows. Look at your samples and determine which crochet hook feels more comfortable and gives you the desired results.
- Choose the best. Once you've been bitten by the crochet bug, you may want to invest in a set of exquisitely handcrafted crochet hooks made of bone, ivory or wood, as well as steel ones in hard to find sizes. Visit antique stores, flea markets, specially needlework shops or shop online for unique yet functional crochet hooks to start your collection.
