I splurged and ordered a ten pack of Bates Bamboo handle hooks and a nine pack of Boye ergonomic handle hooks. The mm size of each letter size is not necessarily the same. I had no idea there was a difference between brands. Is that difference enough to make a difference in gauge? hook letter and number size/mm Boye: D/3.125 E/3.5 F/3.75 G/4.25 H/5 I/5.25 J/5.75 K/6.5 L/8 Bates: E-4/3.5 G-6/4 US7/4.5 H-8/5 I-9/5.5 J-10/6 K-10.5/6.5 L-11/8 M-13/9 N-15/10
Hello, I'm newly returned to crochet after 40 years. I'm working on a dollhouse project and some miniatures. I wanted to crochet the mom a nice shawl and the baby a blanket, plus some floor rugs. I'm having trouble deciding on the thread and hook. My dollhouse is smaller than the usual 1:12 scale and is instead the 1:24 scale (1/2" = 1'). I've tried some small Perle Cotton (sz 8) with a 1mm hook, and even though the thread is soft, it appears too big for my scale. I had some sz 20 Tatting thread on hand and tried it using the 1mm hook but the thread basically is too stiff,
