What to Do With Those Tiny Crochet HooksBy Tameko Barnette – 32 Comments
My favorite size crochet hook is “J”. However, most of my creations are made with a size H, I, or K. When I started attending a crochet group around the end of 2011, one of the members gave me two tiny crochet hooks.
I believe they are sizes B and C. Very small. They are so small I can’t even see the hook without my reading glasses.
My mind scrambled to find uses for these tiny crochet hooks because quite frankly, I couldn’t then and still can’t imagine now actually using them for a pattern. Now, I’m sure you extremely advanced crocheters from way back can really work with any crochet hook that comes your way. But I have to admit these tiny crochet hooks got me stumped. So I figured out another use for them.
I use them to finish off items when i lost my crochet needles. They are just as small, if not smaller. They fit in between the stitches perfectly and can be guided through the ends to finish off without any trouble at all.
Now for those of you who insist on using these tiny crochet hooks to make items, you can always make some bookmarks, doilies, and thin vests or wraps for the Spring and Autumn months.
Regardless of the patterns you decide to try out with your tiny crochet hooks, I’m sure you will have fun with them. Now for those of you who feel a little intimidated by how small these hooks are, just do what I do, take a look at them every once in awhile and promise yourself that one day you will tackle a pattern appropriate for that size.
In the meantime, grab those tiny hooks, finish off those items, and weave those ends.
If you have any ideas for using tiny crochet hooks, please leave a comment. We’d love to hear from you!
