Luxite Plastic Crochet Hooks
If you're looking for an inexpensive but high-quality crochet hook, then be sure to check out the Luxite Plastic Crochet Hooks from Susan Bates. This particular hook is great to work with because the light plastic material literally warms to the touch, and your yarn will gilde over the crochet hook like butter.
These hooks offer a lightweight and inexpensive alternative to aluminum. Luxite is a specially formulated plastic material that is very durable, especially with the larger size options. Some people have found that the smaller sizes are not as strong and tend to bend and snap under pressure. Because of this, we suggest not to use these crochet hooks for tight-gauge projects like amigurumi; the plastic cannot stand up to the pressure and might break or warp. If you tend to crochet tightly, it might be better to use a metal hook, but if you crochet with easy or light tension, these plastic crochet hooks are great.
The Luxite Plastic Crochet Hooks also feature an in line head, which helps reduce wrist motion for fatigue-free crocheting and also helps you maintain a more consistent gauge. The crochet hooks are stamped/engraved with their sizes, both in US and metric, which makes it super easy to find the size you need. The larger hooks; sizes L11-P16; are great when you want to use novelty yarns or double or triple strand your favorite yarn to create afghans, bulky sweaters and crochet scarves.
Overall, these particular plastic crochet hooks are good for the frugal buyer or anyone who doesn't like metal but can't afford wooden. They are especially great for those that are learning how to crochet.
