Interchangeable Crochet Hooks, is that a thing

If you are a knitter you have likely heard of interchangeable knitting needles. It might have felt like crocheters were doomed to always have a million crochet hooks that they needed to carry around just incase they wanted another size. Crochet lovers have the option of interchangeable crochet hooks! What are they, why do you want them, read more to find out.

Interchangeable Crochet Hooks:

Interchangeable Crochet Hooks from Polymer Clay ShedInterchangeable crochet hooks are hook tips that use the same handle. Why is this such an awesome creation? It allows you to carry an entire set of crochet hooks in a small compact kit.

Many times when starting a project you will find that you need to use different hook sizes until you get the gauge right. Rather than having to carry along a big set of hooks a set of interchangeable hooks will save you space.

After doing some searching it was hard to find many options for interchangeable hooks. I could find a set for steel tip hooks (used for dollies) and I found this amazing set from Polymer Clay Shed. Learn more about the artist below. These hooks are amazing in the craftsmanship that goes into the making the handles. Anyone can get a set of hooks but the talent that Carola has to make the clay elements is amazing.

I loved these hooks because not only could I carry my whole set of hooks with me but the clay handles make them ergonomic. For me it is much easier to work longer on a project when the handles are larger. I think that you will enjoy them too when you pick up your set, or even individual hook.

About the Artist:

Polymer Clay Shed is a small Etsy business running out of Texas. With great customer service and a great product I know this will be jumping to the top of your wish list.

Carola was living for over 30 Years in Berlin (Germany) and then moved to the US in 1998, together with my family, hubby and 3 kids. She was always involved in some kind of crafts, not always Polymer Clay but painting in oil, scrap booking, art projects with her kids and girl scouts troop. In 2007 she rediscovered Polymer Clay, a craft she learned 2nd grade to make a Christmas ornament in art class. Ever since then she hasn’t been able to put it down. Combining colors and coming up with new designs is what she loves.

Polymer Clay CanesThe technique used in my work Is called “caning” in which a cane, or a long roll of Polymer Clay is made with a design that runs the full length of the cylinder. This can be sliced and applied to flat or curved surfaces as a design element. This process imitates the technique used in making certain types of glass beads and is called millefiori. The completed piece is finished by sanding and buffing.
All the canes I am using are 100% hand crafted and designed by me. I am using Premo clay for my creations.

    What a fantastic idea! The hooks are beautiful. I’m hoping they become available with Susan Bates in-line heads.

    When my mother-in-law passed away, my father-in-law showed up at my door one day with bags and bags of yarn. She had a huge stash of yarn that filled an enormous walk-in closet of an old vintage inner city brownstone. He bought me half of her stash, while the other half was donated to the ladies group at his church. He also handed me her vintage oversized hatboxes; in one she stored her knitting needles while in the other her crochet tools. In the crochet box, I found two small rectangular boxes. One made of a polished mother of pearl, the other was covered in a plaid fabric. When you flipped opened the lids, you found steel crochet hooks, sizes 00 – 6, nestled in slots, coshioned with green felt. At bottom of each hook was a threading. There was a handle, fitted into the box, under the row of hooks, whitch you would screw the hook into. One handle was made of mother-of-pearl and the other was a dark wood. Unfortunately, both handles were split down one side, rendering the hooks useless as you couldn’t keep the hooks screwed into the handle. These items dated back to the late 1930’s/early 1940’s! Maybe interchangeable crochet needles aren’t such a novel idea?
