- Point: Inserts easily in relatively tight stitches, like back bump in chain or first stitch in row.
- Indentation: Yarn doesn’t slip off or drop stitches easily
- Smoothness/sliding: Yarn doesn’t drag or pick up fuzz
- Interchangeable cords: Descriptive
- Comfort (holding the hook) – small projects; large projects – doesn’t dig into hands, hands don’t tire easily
- Length/ease of cords: Easy to attach, non-intrusive, can accommodate extra large projects
- Cost: Descriptive
- Value: Doesn’t require purchasing extras; sets include most useful hook sizes
- Where it’s made: Descriptive. Preference up to the user – everything from China, Japan and India to the USA
- Material: Descriptive category
- Split-prone yarn experience: Using same size hook on same yarn, how often yarn splits occur when using the hook
- Fuzzy yarn experience: Does the hook pick up fuzz? Does it drag or pull?
Exceptional post but I was wanting to know if you could write a litte more on this topic?
I’d be very thankful if you could elaborate a little bit more.
Sure; happy to. I’ll provide my own experience with different types and their best uses. Anything specific you want to know?
