Changes Regarding BOYE Crochet Hooks

Posted by Danyel Pink on

Hello Friends!

We just wanted to write a quick note about some changes here at Happy Crochet Hooks!

The company that makes the Boye hooks is no longer selling the 9.0mm hook, and it will no longer be available at HCH either.  At this time, the 9.0mm size is still available in the Susan Bates brand.

Also, the Boye company is changing the size of their I/9 hook from 5.5mm to 5.25mm, and the size of their J/10 hook from 6.0mm to 5.75mm.  When you order one of those sizes in the Boye brand, they may arrive in the new sizes.  We cannot take requests for those sizes as it depends on availability, and we do apologize for any inconvenience.

Lastly, a few of our fans have asked if we can create handles for hooks smaller than B/2.25mm or if we can create key chains with a design from a regular hook.  We can!  Please send us an email if you would like to inquire about a custom order.

If you have any questions about these changes, please email me anytime!

Thank you!

How to Choose a Hook - Tips from the Designers

Posted by Emily Truman on

There is a great divide in the crochet world: Boye vs. Bates hooks. Which do you choose? The best way to choose a hook is just to test as many as possible and see what feels best in your hands and with your grip. So what’s the difference? Here are a few critiques:

Boye hooks have a tapered throat versus Bates hooks which have a throat in-line. The placement of the thumb rest is also different on the two hooks. Some crocheters have a definite preference and are loyal to their brand while others prefer different hooks for different styles of yarn.


Another thing to consider is the way your hold your hook. This quick video shows the difference between the knife hold and the pencil hold. The way you hold your hook may also affect the hook you choose. 

 We asked several designers for their best tips on choosing hooks. Read their recommendations and see the beautiful designs that they have created with their favorite hooks:

Danyel Pink  of Danyel Pink Designs:  I like Bates with Clay or Bamboo handles. I have a pencil grip. 

Tip: Try a few and see what you like best!


Amber Millard of Divine Debris:  I don't really have a preference when it comes to hooks, but I've been using Boye hooks from a set I was gifted with and they work well. I have a knife hold.

Tip: have fun and try a variety. I've got plastic and Bates hooks and I don't like the plastic nearly as much as, but now I know. :)


Jennifer Dougherty of Crochet by Jennifer:  I use Boye but I plan to try the Clover Amour soon, and I have a knife grip.

Tip: Try both styles, inline and tapered and see what works best for you. :)


Ashley Leither of Ashley Designs Corner:  I like Bates but with a wooden handle, so I use Yarnology and I have a knife grip.

Tip: Use something, like a wooden handle, to give the hook a thicker grip to give you less hand pain. I actually wrote a blog post on picking the right hook.!How-Do-I-Choose-the-Correct-Crochet-Hook/c34z/55832e290cf2c5a6c8fb172f


Sarah Lora of Ball Hank n' Skein:  I use Boye, have a knife hold and I choose hooks based on price!

Jonna Ventura of Frayed Knot:  I love Bates, have a pencil hold.

Tip: try all different kinds!


Michelle Warwick of From Home:  I prefer Bates and I have a knife hold. I like clay handled hooks and plain hooks.
