Choosing the right crochet hook material is just as important as choosing the right wool materials. This makes a big difference over your crochet history. In this blog we would like to introduce you to different crochet hooks made of different materials, but first let's take a closer look at a crochet hook.
A crochet hook consists of three parts: hook, shaft and grip
The wool is picked up with the hook. Depending on the design, the wool can slip off or get stuck. Our Knitterspride crochet hooks are shaped in such a way that you always have a good grip and the hook neither slips nor gets caught. See for yourself.
The shank is usually made of the same material as the hook. This area should be smooth to allow the thread to flow easily.
The handle is the area that is in our hands all the time. This range should be comfortable for our hands. The best way to find out which grip shape is suitable for your own hand is to try out the different materials and grips yourself. This is the only way to find the perfect crochet hook for you.
A crochet hook can be made of metal, wood, plastic, or bamboo. We would like to introduce you to our Knitterspride crochet hooks made of the following materials:
Aluminum: Aluminum crochet hooks are lightweight but very strong at the same time. Because it is a metal crochet hook, all types of wool slide easily over it. Mohair or cotton in particular are best worked with metal needles.
Wood: Wood crochet hooks are particularly popular because of their warmth. As described above, hairy types of wool are not suitable for wooden needles, they do not slide off particularly well and thus disrupt your workflow.
Steel: Steel is particularly robust. Similar to aluminum, these are particularly suitable for hairy yarns. These needles have a sturdy handle and are ideal for all types of projects.
Bamboo: Similar to wood, bamboo is particularly popular due to its warmth.
