Win a Furls Crochet Hook & Dionne Shawl Kit!

In the nearly 10 years I’ve been crocheting, I’ve used a lot of different hooks – big, small, wood, metal, plastic, etc. I even used a broken pen cap once when I was desperate! But just this week I got to try a hook like none of the others…

Our friends at Furls Crochet sent us one of their gorgeous, handcrafted Rosewood crochet hooks. It’s so pretty, but I’ll admit I wasn’t sure how it would feel to switch from my skinny, straight hooks to the thick, tear-drop shape of a Furls Crochet hook.

It’s actually an ergonomic design, intended not only to protect your hand, but also to improve the quality of your stitches! Here’s a quick video from Furls, which explains how this shape compares to regular crochet hooks.

I whipped up a swatch in Berroco Mixer using the stitch pattern from Dionne. It probably took the first repeat to find my most natural grip. By the end, I noticed that my motions were more relaxed, almost effortless.
