Sharp Crochet Hook Review
Over 4 years ago I posted this tutorial on how I make crochet-edged baby blankets. Sarah left a comment on that post, writing, "Thanks for this! How do you poke your crochet hook through the fabric? Mine is just too dull to get the job done. Is there a special sharp hook you can use?" Up until today, my reply would have been that I just use an ordinary size 8 steel crochet hook and keep wiggling the tip until it goes through the fabric.
Today my reply would be this: Go to sharpcrochethook.com and order one of the sharp, pointy crochet hooks!
This week I tried out the sharp crochet hook on the pictured baby blanket, and yes, the hook really is pointed and easily poked through my flannel fabric. I was able to crochet round 1 of the blanket more quickly with this hook than with my normal, blunt tip hook. Now I did find that I still had to wiggle the hook a bit, but only because I wanted to ensure that the hook went between the fibers of fabric without tearing the fibers. All in all, I'm pleased with this pointed hook and will definitely use it on all my baby blankets.
