Below I’ll highlight a few of my favorite crochet hook sets as well as crochet hooks for beginners. With many crochet hooks available it’s difficult to know which is are the best hooks to crochet with so this post will help you decide.
Where to Buy Crochet Hooks
When you are first learning to crochet, you will more than likely want to test out different styles of crochet hooks before you commit to a complete crochet hook set. I know when I started crocheting I bought several brands of hooks to see which I liked best.
The best places to shop for crochet hooks are in local craft stores, yarn shops and online.
Crochet hooks are available to shop in many styles and sizes, so it is best to learn all about crochet hooks and their sizes before you start shopping. If you dive right into purchasing a hook set without research, you will get overwhelmed easily.
Buy Individually or a Set?
Should you buy a crochet hook set, or the different sizes individually? I always prefer to buy the set of hooks. Most sets come with anywhere between 8-12 hooks, and they are always the most common sizes (i.e. sizes B to J).
After buying a set (or two, haha), you can always buy the non-standard sizes individually.
The Top Crochet Hook Sets
Explore this collection of the best crochet hook sets for crocheting. Take a second to look over each of the different types of crochet hooks before deciding which is the top crochet hook to buy for you.
Tulip Etimo Crochet Hook Set
The best part of this top-rated tulip crochet hook set is the grip. You will love how comfortable these hooks are to crochet with and how your hand won’t get tired.
The price on these can be high, but they are of superior quality and are the ergonomic hooks I recommend the most over any other crochet hook brand. As a bonus, this set comes with a hook carrying case, scissors and a sturdy ruler. The comfort when crocheting stitches is worth the investment!
This is my favorite set of crochet hooks by a mile. They can be a bit pricey, but in my opinion they are worth every penny!
Clover Amour Crochet Hooks Set
A Clover crochet hook set is a great investment in your hands. They have comfortable grip handles and are easy to hold for long periods of time. If you suffer from hand fatigue or get a cramp from time to time, then these are the ones for you!
The price on these can also be high, like the Tulips, but they are of great quality and are my second favorite hook set I recommend. I love them so much, I have two sets of these for on the go crocheting and at home crocheting. Extra: You may also like to check out Clover Soft Touch Hooks that are made even wider at the handle to help with hand cramps too.
Boye Ergonomic Crochet Hooks
This crochet hook set includes twelve crochet hooks with a soft rubber grip (rubber handles).
The price on these are lower than the other two sets above, but still have a great quality to them. These are a good crochet hook set for beginners to try that want to have a comfortable hook for their hands.
Susan Bates Hooks
This crochet hook set comes in a set of six different crochet hooks sizes. There are a variety of this brand’s hook size sets available but the best Susan Bates hook set for a new crocheter is the one that contains the US sizes 3.75-mm, 4-mm, 5-mm, 5.5-mm, 6-mm and 6.5-mm. These sizes are most often used in easy crochet projects.
The price on these are significantly lower than the other two sets above, but still have a great quality to them. These are a good crochet hook set for beginners to try, have a thumb rest and are a strong hook set to have on hand.
Yarniss Ergonomic Hook Set With Accessories
This set is a cheaper option of the soft grip crochet hooks to try if you aren’t certain what hooks are right for you.
This set comes with 14 different sizes of crochet hooks, stitch markers, yarn needles, scissors, and a hook case for a low price. There are also a few different options to get smaller and larger crochet hook sets if you’d like to try those too. This set is perfect for a new crocheter who is looking for a nice crochet hook set to try.
