What Is Your Most Used Crochet Hook?

By Rachel Choi – September 20th, 2017 17 Comments

Many crocheters have lots of crochet hooks, but if you’re like me there is one hook that you tend to use the most. It will most likely depend on the type of crochet projects you enjoy making and the thickness of yarn or thread you tend to use.

For me, I use a lot of medium/worsted weight yarn to crochet hats, scarves, home decor items, blankets, and bags. Although that is a wide range of projects, I still tend to have a most used hook and secondary hooks that are a size up or down depending on the tension I want to achieve. My most used crochet hook is a Susan Bates size I (5.50 mm). It’s nothing fancy, just a plain aluminum crochet hook that I bought in a starter set a long time ago.

Here is a scarf that is perfect for the fall and autumn weather. The granny square inspired stitch pattern gives it a rustic look. Crochet it in autumn colors to match the season or your favorite colors to complement any outfit. The triangle shape is perfect for giving an outfit dimension and also filling in the neck area on V-neck coats. The pattern is crocheted from the top down, so that you can easily add more rows to adjust the size of the scarf. Make it as big as you want, big enough to wear as a shawl if you wish.
