How do you hold a crochet hook?

Recommended Posts

I'm more of a B than anything. But I think I hold mine like you'd hold a steak knife...if that makes any sense...lol.

I'm a B, and tend toward looser stitching, especially if I'm tired and don't pay close attention...

B - that's the way I learned. :)

I'm an A:hook I hold the Tunisian with B:cheer Jacqui

 

Yeah, I also hold the Tunisian hook B-style although I'm an A.

 

Now I'm curious if anyone at all holds the Tunisian hook the A way?

I hold it B. I tried A, but cannot get the hang of it. The person who taught me to crochet held it as a B as well.

 

Hope

C: thumb extended more and hand closed more with the needle/hook in the first knuckle joint and a padded etension on the back end of the needle/hook.

 

but closest to B:

 

Yes! This is how I hold hooks too!:hook

I am more like this but with the hook up, and my tension is pretty even.

B, although I've tried several times over the years to hold it like A...no can do...

oh, forgot to answer this question too, sorry...my work is pretty loose...unless I'm working with thread and it's small work like making a leaf or something like that...a lacey doilie will come out a bit loose, but otherwise a bit tighter...but with yarn, looser, just right for me anyway.

I use the B position but it is damaging the tendons in my arm. My stitches are very tight and require a hook two sizes above stated. Need to find hooks with adaptors to make them "fatter" to require less tension on the tendon. Any ideas?

I'm cloest to a B. And I work even, but tight.

Closest to B, although like many, I hold the hook upside-down from that picture. I also tend to crochet tightly (but I'm trying to fix it. :) )

I'm an "A" unless I'm doing tunisian, then I switch without thinking about it. Just seems to work better that way for that.
