I bought some pencil grips for this very purpose when all the school supplies went on sale. I think two hooks fit as is, but most were way too small. Thats why Im so happy to have found this article. I had thought of wrapping them in yarn first, but never thought of using rubber bands instead. I have the perfect thin bands, too, so I can really control the thickness.

Oh boy, did this title catch my eye. My ands hurt so bad after spending a day crocheting that I usually have to take a two day break from it and it doesnt matter whether the pattern is a small one or a large one, its just from holding the hooks. Im not totally convinced that putting a pencil gripper would even help me because I even use the agronomical hooks and wear support gloves and still have pain

This is a great tip! I find that the metal hooks will slip - this will help with that in addition to helping get a better grip on the smaller hooks! Thank you!

I have RV and have a lot of pain in left hand,not hook hand, I need help finding something so that I can hold by the stitch without bending the thumb.
