Ergonomic Crochet Hooks

We have talked before about the importance of having the proper tools when working on projects. Working for long periods of time can cause fatigue. Ergonomic wooded crochet hook handles are a great way to improve your crochet time and endurance. Ashley from Leither Co. joins me to talk about her special hooks.

About Ashley Leither:

My name is Ashley Leither, I became hooked on crochet back in 2011. I became so addicted that I started designing crochet patterns and over the past 8 years, I have published 300 patterns and published two books.

After I suffered several crochet injuries, I was looking for a way to improve my crochet experience, so I talked to my husband about what I wanted in a crochet hook and he made it for me, which lead to starting Leither Co. crochet hooks and the Leither Collection Subscription Box.

    I understand how one could get hooked on these lovely hooks. I’m wondering if they’re comfortable for one who crochets using the pencil grip?
