Crochet Hook Grips/Handles

Right! So today I wanted to blog about something a little different than I normally do. First off - because I am totally not not working right now, which I should be. Secondly, this is really lovely and I want to share it with everyone!

Topic: Crochet Hook Holders

So for those of you who don't live in the US or don't have access to crochet hook grips it can be very annoying! I think I have now built up a nice little callous on my finger, but before I would get blisters for crocheting too tight. This sucks. Period. But! I have found our saviour! While perusing a tapestry crochet website I found this tutorial to make crochet grips out of bake-able clay (Fimo for example).

Now I don't know if I am the densest person in the world, but I seriously never thought of the idea! It is a fantastic idea and you can make beautiful handles for your hooks. I found tutorials to make flowers, faces, etc.etc.etc. Hurrah for the internet!

Check out the tutorial here, it is a little bit from the top of the page and it is the video on the right.


  1. Liz I am so going to do this, my wrists have been aching lately! You are so awesome for posting this, hurray for Liz!

  2. I love the idea of making my crochet hooks more comfy because even though I live in the US why buy more hooks when I can buy colorful clay and have fun?
