[Hook Review]

Date: 14th January 2016 | Category: News

This beautiful oversized hook is designed and made by Steel&Stitch – that’s the talented Emma Friedlander-Collins (Stitch) and her mechanical engineer husband (Steel). Emma’s other half made her one of these extra-large hooks to
use while she was working on her recent book Big Hook Crochet, and she got so many queries about where to buy them that they went into production!
We managed to get our hands on one of the 25mm hooks and they are gorgeous. Having never worked with such a big scale in crochet before, we found that our hold had to change to accommodate such exaggerated working,
but the hook itself was very comfortable to use. It feels substantial but not weighty in the hands, while the wood shaft is sleek and feels lovely against your fingers. The tip of the hook is the best part – the curve is so pleasing to look at but it also enhances the smooth crocheting action. Currently made in European hardwood, other materials such as walnut will be available soon and would make a fabulous stocking filler for any crocheter.
