I never thought about the difference in crochet hooks. I like aluminum and have a set that is decades old. On a whim, I purchased this palmwood hook, and it quickly became my favorite. It's sturdy, its pretty and it has a nice deep, in-line hook. The thumb grip is close to the hook, which I like. The ONLY change I would make would be to add the mm size to the end. I did compare the wood and aluminum hooks and they are the same size. I'll be buying more!
I am a crochet designer with over 80 designs... and I've used almost every hook under the sun... I can use them.. but never fell in love with one... UNTIL NOW... These hooks are amazing they are smooth so no snags and easy maneuvering (moves like a clover)... Has a deep hook so your yarn is less likely to slip off.. the dip in the center for your fingers is why I bought it it's so comfortable and high enough up to the hook that you don't feel a million miles away from the hook top... and lastly it's light weight so you don't have the strain of a heavy hook to move around.. all in all my crocheting is amazing with this hook and I want to crochet more now that I have an amazing hook! I will be getting the whole set at some point!
These are the best crochet hooks ever! I crochet and knit, and they are wonderful. I like the hooks without a bulb on the very top of the hook, and these have a very flat head, which I think is important so you don't get it stuck in stiches! They feel amazing!
