Fans are bringing up a great point about the tips of the crochet hooks. For some people, it’s not even about the comfort handle or material of the crochet hook. It’s all about the tips of the crochet hook.
Leave me a comment below telling me what you prefer in a crochet hook.
Molded Hooks are formed and the shape is part of the molding or casting procedure. They tend to be more open and less jagged.
Saw Cut Hooks are formed and then cut after the process. You can usually see the rounded saw marks in the neck of the hook. Unless the manufacturer refines the hook edge, they tend to be sharp at the hooking point.
Some resin hooks are also molded with a saw cut finish of being a sharp hooking point.
For me, I look for hooks that are like the gold one… molded. I prefer the tip to be more oval in shape instead of a semi circle. I find I can look away more often as the tipping point of the molded one tends to be more accurate when going into a stitch.
So let’s hear from you… What do you most prefer in the tips of your crochet hooks? Leave me a comment below.
