Crochet hooks are a necessary tool in making crochet items like sweaters, afghans, scarves and more.
These hooks have traditionally been made from wood. They are fast turnings that produce lovely smooth handles making them a pleasure to use.
|Easy-to-Hold Crochet Hook Handle |
By: John Wolf
You can turn a complete crochet hook from wood then carve the “hook” in its end. That is a satisfying project. My daughter, however, prefers the way a specific brand of metal hook grabs then releases the yarn. The problem with those hooks is that they are smaller in diameter than a wooden pencil. Holding that skinny shape for a period of time leads to hand fatigue. Fortunately, there is a woodturning solution. Make a wooden handle that is larger and more comfortable to hold, and then fit into it the metal hook and shaft of the purchased crochet hook.
