Thread hook help

Recommended Posts

ive recently tried to do a little thread crochet. i did a small bit of just DC as im familiar with this. the little bit i did looked great, just what i wanted.

 

i did however find it harder to catch the thread in the hook when doing a yarn over. is this normal? i tried it with a bigger hook but the work didnt look so nice and i still found it hard to catch the thread. is it maybe my technique that needs a bit of refinement or maybe jsut take more time over it?

 

thanks

Boye and Bates have different shaped heads. I find Bates hooks to be much easier to work with while others like Boye better.

 

Just remember if you're going to try a different brand the sizes run differently. A 7 Boye is a 5 Bates.

the hook i was using was a pony hook, so i will try buying some other brands to see what works for me.
