Jane has used a 3.5mm, 4mm & 4.5mm hook in the project. The 4mm hook is used for the majority of the project, but it is important that you do have all 3 sizes as using the incorrect hook size will affect the appearance of your piece.

The ergonomic design of the hook also means there is a flat area for your thumb to rest on.

Many of them have a plastic type handle and Jane can vouch for the fact that a sturdy handle really does help if you struggle with sore wrists or fingers when you crochet.
