Crochet Hook Spotlight + Giveaway

We're happy to say that the Knitter's Pride family has plenty of crocheters in the fold. In the short video below, you'll meet a few who have gotten "hooked" on our line of crochet products:

Dreamz Crochet Set
Whether you prefer wooden or metallic hooks, Knitter's Pride has you covered!  If you're new to crochet, our line of natural birch hooks are perfect for getting started. Basix single-ended hooks come in eight sizes and work well with any type of material, especially thicker yarns.

The Dreamz line of crochet hooks are color-coded for easy identification and available in traditional as well as Tunisian-style.  Each hook is lightweight with a polished wood surface for effortless glide; choose from 13 sizes of single-ended hooks to add to your collection, or get our crochet set which includes eight of the most frequently-used hook sizes.  Our Dreamz Interchangeable Tunisian line has the same great features as our single-ended hooks plus easy-to-connect cords with smooth joins.  Purchase individual sizes of hooks or invest in a set!

Aluminum Hooks
For those who prefer metallic needles, our lightweight Aluminum and Steel crochet hooks feature ergonomically-designed soft feel handles for hours of comfortable crafting.  Single-ended steel hooks are available in six sizes; for a wider range of sizes, our single-ended aluminum hooks (available in gold or silver anodized finishes) fit the bill.  We also have single-ended Tunisian hooks in our aluminum line!

Knitter's Pride is proud to provide jobs for folks in rural India who do not have have viable sources of income; we also support charities in our local community.  However, we also like to support our American friends and fans!  Recently, we sponsored Beans for Brains (click here to see who this year's scholarship winners are!).  We also source the wood used to manufacture our Basix and Symfonie line of hooks (and needles!) from the USA.  Additionally, all of the cords used in our interchangeable sets are purchased from a supplier in Ohio state.
