Apple Wood Crochet Hooks

This small-batch crochet hook crafter features hand-whittled pieces that often come from locally-found apple tree wood. Each piece is sold via internet auction on the website and comes with a rather whimsical origin story. (Jimbo's Front Porch, Auction-Style)

Custom Crochet Hooks  

Husband-and-wife craft artisans Brian and Anne Bergmann hand-turn each crochet hook on a lathe and design these freehand. No stains or dyes are used, ideal for crocheters with sensitive skin or allergies; instead, the deep colors are a result of a detailed finishing process that involves intensive sanding, sealing, hand-polishing and buffing. (BrainsBarn, $75)

    I knit and crochet. Metal hooks seemed to make my hand joints cold, plastic hooks always seemed to have a seam and never felt natural in my hand. Just not comfortable. I found some wood in the giant sizes but never anything like these. Each and every one of the hooks above are works of art. Masterpieces made by hand. Love, love, love. Just perfect.
