Do you ever get that weird cramp in your hand when you are crocheting? I have! I started looking for different types of crochet hooks that would help with my hand posture. I figured if they make ergonomic coffee cups, then they probably make ergonomic crochet hooks.
There are two different types of crochet hooks: in-line hooks and tapered hooks. In-line hooks are a uniform size all the way up to the top of the hook, and the hook has a sharp, pointy head. Tapered hooks are more narrow towards the top of the hook and have a round, soft head.
I prefer the in-line hooks because I am a tight crocheter and the consistent size of the shaft helps to keep my work a uniform size without getting too tight.
Here are the top 3 ergonomic crochet hooks:
Clover Soft Touch Crochet Hook– This tapered aluminum hook has an optimal shape and a special oval shaped soft rubber handle for ideal comfort. It fits your hand perfectly and is easy to hold and maneuver.
Susan Bates Silvalume Crochet Hook– Made of lightweight aluminum, this in-line hook helps reduce wrist motion for fatigue-free crocheting and will keep your work consistently gauged.
Clover Amour Crochet Hook-Made of lightweight aluminum with an elastomer rubber handle, this tapered hook provides maximum comfort since it is so soft in your hand.
