Editor's Notes

September 05, 2019:

When evaluating the best crochet hooks, we looked a lot at ergonomics because most projects require hours of work to finish.

The Clover Amour take the top spot because they're shaped to promote a proper grip and they are reliably smooth for experienced crafters who like to work quickly and don't want to stop for snags.

While ergonomics are important, we chose to include the Susan Bates Silvalume. They have a thumb rest, but the rest is plain ultra-lightweight aluminum. Not only are these a great introductory set, but for some the lightest crochet hook is the best one, and the Susan Bates brand is a trusted maker of aluminum hooks.
