Basic Crochet Supplies

Question

Okay I am starting up with crocheting after not doing it for 20 years ( 20 years ago I tried to do a rather large afghan and got discouraged. Then in August 2009 one of the girls at work was doing edging for baby socks and I was like hmm.... I can do that. The rest is several socks later and three hats one baby afghan I am hooked) So then this is what I have for supplies.

 

Steel Hooks Sizes 7, 8, 9,10, 0, 1

 

Regular Hook Sizes F,G,H,I,J,K

 

and I have removable stitch placers

 

 

So besides yarn needless (for sewing pieces together or working yarn through stitches)

 

what other basic supplies do I need (Yarn excluded)

 

*Had to edit I left a few letters out of needles *blushes*

I would add a large needle for sewing the squares (or whatever) together and also a pair of good scissors. Congratulations on coming back to the craft!!!

I agree w/ Deb on the needle and good scissors! ...Oh and I would definately get a tote to carry my crafts in! But other than that and some patterns..I'd say you are set!

All of the above. To expand on Deb's recommendation of a needle - get a set of tapestry needles -- blunt tips work much better with yarn. And not the plastic ones.

Eventually, you might also want to get a longer Tunisian crochet hook / afghan crochet hook, if you like working Tunisian crochet. It isn't a necessity, but sure is nice to have. I find that I use my size J afghan hook the most.

the only serious suggestion I have is row counters. I find them handy.

 

but if you're really ocd, get every hook available by about a half dozen manufacturers in acrylic, bamboo, wood, and whatever the latest spaceage technology wonder material is! And a few just because you like the color! or the shape! or the material! :)

 

Otherwise, you are well set for almost any crochet challenge!
