Hi, I have been going through a bag of assorted crochet hooks and have found one which is like none of the other ones. It is plastic and has a hook at one end but the hook has a vertical slit down the side. It is also blunt at the top, and has a hole drilled through the hook at the other end. I have attached pictures of the hook as that will be easier to see than my description. I have assumed that this is for crocheting of some sort, as in a bag of crochet hooks, but might not be. I Was wondering if anyone had seen a hook like this before, or knew what it is for?
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
