Happy Tuesday friends!
I recently got the opportunity to review the Knit Pro Waves Aluminium Crochet Hooks!
When I opened the package containing the hooks I was amazed by the bright color explosion; the pink zippered carry around folder really caught my eye!
The folder contains 9 crochet color coded hooks in the following sizes: 2.00, 2.50, 3.00, 3.50, 4.00, 4.50, 5.00, 5.50 and 6.00mm. I find that these sizes are used the most, either when making amigurumi, or crochet accessories, although my favorite hook size is definitely 4mm (I find that most items can be made using this hook size)!
Now regarding the hooks, they are comfort grip hooks with a short aluminium shaft and hook head. The bright colored grip is soft and flat on top and bottom to provide an ergonomic and comfortable experience, especially when crocheting for longer time periods. Also the grip allows the hook not to slip off your hand at any time!
The aluminium hook glides easily through your work, while the pointed tip easily gets in and out of stitches! The hook size is printed in Metric sizes in black on the handle, although I prefer using color codes to identify each hook size!
What I liked most compared to a standard aluminium hook, is that the hook is truly comfortable in the hand when working and as a I am a tight crocheter I found that as the head is moderately pointed, crocheting in tight stitches becomes really easy.
So in order to sum up the pros of the Knit Pro Waves Aluminium Crochet Hooks are: they are truly easy and comfortable to use, plus you could take the organized folder anywhere you go, as it fits in any bag! Also the set is really affordable!
The cons are: I'd prefer the sizes to be printed in both U.S and Metric sizes, as it might be more convenient for beginner's or those who have not fully gotten the hang of the metric system!
The verdict: I LOVE my Knit Pro Waves Hook set and have been using it a lot lately. It feels so comfortable whenever I’m working on my projects. I think they are worth giving a try, especially if you're looking for a step up from the standard aluminium hook!
Enjoy the rest of your day!
