The Tulip Crochet hooks are considered one of the best crochet hooks available. The pink grip has an ergonomically flattened thumb rest. This makes it easier to control the hook for both pencil- and knifegrips. The soft grip is big enough to provide some ‘substance’ in your hand, meaning that you do not have to grip the crochet hook as tightly as you would for a normal metal hook. This is especially beneficial for smaller hooks to help you relax your grip, something that will help you make your lace crochet uniform and neat.
The head of the crochet hook is very smooth so the yarn doesn’t snag (or squeak!) and semi-blunt, to help you get into stitches easier and to prevent splitting of the yarn. The shaft is tapered. The soft grip measures 10cm (4in), and the hook portion measures 4.5cm (1.75in), giving you a total length of 14.5cm (5.75in). Hooks are available from size 2.0mm (2/0) to size 6.5mm (10.5/0). This particular set contains 0.50mm, 0.60mm, 0.75mm, 0.90mm, 1.00mm, 1.25mm, 1.50mm and 1.75mm hooks (.
We can tell you from personal experience that after over two years of intensive use, the hooks still look like new. The coating of the shaft and head is durable and the size indication is still very clear. All in all, The Japanese Tulips hooks are what we consider one of the best brands out there.
