Check out this article to learn more about using small crochet hooks.
The art of crocheted lace
A lot of people love lace, but are quite intimidated by the idea of making it themselves. But don’t worry: you don’t have to possess some kind of super power to be able to create pretty lace patterns. If you’re new to crocheting lace, it’s a good idea to look online for some easy crochet lace patterns for beginners. For example, start crocheting basic shells, v-shells and twisted stitches. If you’re still a little unsure of yourself, just practice the pattern using sock yarn and the largest lace crochet hook you have, for example a size 3.5mm (size F). Once you get the hang of it, simply switch to a smaller hook. As always: the right knitting equipment is everything.
There are quite a few brands of small crochet hooks available. However, our absolute favourite hooks to create fine thread work with are the Japanese Tulip Etimo small crochet hooks. There are plenty of reasons for this. To begin with, their ergonomically shaped thumb rest and comfortable soft grip ensure a pleasant, relaxed crocheting experience. This is especially important when working with fine, delicate thread: you don’t want to cramp up by having to hold the hook too tight! Furthermore, the heads of the Tulip hooks are very smooth and semi-blunt, which allows you to work fast without risking to drop or split the thread. Last but not least: these hooks provide excellent value for money, coming at a reasonable price.
