I’ve never seen a square handled crochet hook before, but I’m intrigued.
These hooks claim to be ‘ergonomically designed’ (as do many others) and are a bit pricey for mass-marketed hooks, but if they live up to even half of their hype, they’ll be worth it to me to take some pressure off my carpel tunnel syndrome problem.
Kollage Square Crochet Hools (and knitting needles) are available at a variety of online vendors, but the one pictured above can be found here . I chose to link to this site because their photo of the hooks was far better than others, including the manufacturer’s site! The hooks have rosewood handles and aluminum heads.
I found this cool site for jewelry making supplies when I was searching for different sizes of cording to crochet with. Marion has a wealth of those cords for sale too. You can see them here . The more I sniffed around this site, the more pleased I became. You gotta love a jewelry maker who ventures into crochet! Read about her crochet adventures here and take a look at the pretty necklace which was her first such project.
I would love to hear from any readers who have personal experience with these hooks. I plan to order one so I can form my own opinion, but I’d love to hear yours too!
