Easy-to-Hold Crochet Hook Handle
By John Wolf

For: Beginner Turners


You can turn a complete crochet hook from wood then carve the “hook” in its end. That is a satisfying project. My daughter, however, prefers the way a specific brand of metal hook grabs then releases the yarn. The problem with those hooks is that they are smaller in diameter than a wooden pencil. Holding that skinny shape for a period of time leads to hand fatigue. Fortunately, there is a woodturning solution. Make a wooden handle that is larger and more comfortable to hold, and then fit into it the metal hook and shaft of the purchased crochet hook.
