Throughout my almost 10 years (!!) in creating modern crochet designs on this site, I’ve tried many products. I am always being asked what materials are needed for beginners or what my favorite items are. Well, that is why this page was created.
I’ve been using many of these products in my own projects for years, and I am certain that you will enjoy using them as well.
You can’t crochet properly without the right hooks. You will be holding on to these tools for hours on end, so you better pick one that is comfortable. Remember that size matters when using the right hook with a particular pattern.
These premium aluminum hooks glide over the yarn super easily.
These ergonomic hooks are comfortable and ease my hand pain.
If you need a specific size, Clover offers their hooks in single packs too.
These inexpensive aluminum hooks are a great option when travelling.
My Favorite Yarn
These are the yarn skeins that we typically use in our patterns. They all wash really well, are easy to use and are always of the highest quality without breaking the bank.
Wool Ease Thick & Quick is my favorite yarn. It really can be used with just about any project.
Vanna’s Choice is my go-to yarn for projects that need to wash up and dry well.
Feels Like Butta yarn is perfect for blankets or any project that needs to be soft.
Baby Blanket is cozy and bulky yarn that works up fast and is really easy to work with.
