Aluminum Afghan/Tunisian Crochet Hook
Aluminum crochet hook for Tunisian crocheting. The crochet needle is extra long - 30 cm - allowing for more meshes than typical Tunisian crochet hooks allow for. The head of the needle ensures that the stitches remain on the needle and you do not have to worry about losing the meshes.
The crochet hook is available in sizes from 2-5 mm. The relatively small sizes and thin hooks allow you to crochet very small and dense meshes, and the needles here are therefore very suitable for smaller patterns.
KnitPro has chosen to make the high quality aluminum needles, as aluminum is a strong material that ensures a strong and durable crochet hook.
Size: 2-5 mm
I just received my order. Thank you for such quick delivery. It was a little delayed due to the Easter long weekend but 16 days is good with that factored in.
I'm very pleased with the quality of the KnitPro Tunisian hooks. Canada is just not very imaginative in the size range the craft shops carry for Tunisian hooks (or don’t carry at all). Whereas I want to work with fingering yarn and 2 - 3.5mm hooks, Canadian Tunisian hooks normally start at 4mm. Since I normally knit and crochet loose that’s a problem for me. It varies from yarn to yarn, but I really need those smaller hooks; as much as a full size on the more slippery yarns.
Now that I have my new hooks, I can actually progress onto my short row slippers. I've been doing my early sample work on a regular crochet hooks playing with various sock yarn scraps, but my sample width was limited and it was affecting my tension.
:) These Tunisian hooks are perfect for what I needed. I'm starting to swatch for my slipper project and this is such an improvement over trying to use regular crochet hooks and working around the thumb rest bump. It always throws my tension off. I've been able to go down one more hook size and the tension is definitely more consistent now with what the project was designed with (I knit/crochet loose and always have to use a smaller needle or hook). It probably helps to have better "Hobbii Yarn" as well.
Durable, sturdy and light weight. All key factors, so your hand and arm don't get tired from holding the hook. Good length for those starting out.
I love my new Tunisian crochet hook!
Thank you, hobbii!
