15 luxury crochet hooks you can buy online
Knit Pro Waves Crochet Hook Set
Best for small-scale designs
Although many luxury crochet hooks are made from wood, you might prefer the strength of metal hooks (especially if you're a tight crocheter).
The Knit Pro Waves set features nine smooth aluminium hooks, each with a colour-coded soft-grip handle, which many people find helps to relieve any soreness while crocheting. The hooks come in a nice faux leather case and the sizes range from 2mm to 6mm, making them perfect for crocheters who like making amigurumi and other small-scale projects.
Prym Ergonomic Hooks
Best for relieving soreness
Prym Ergonomic Hooks have been designed so you can crochet in comfort! These ergonomically designed hooks are made from a super-lightweight plastic and have a rubber-coated handle, making them the perfect choice for any crocheter that suffers from wrist or hand strain with regular hooks.

Prym hooks are available to buy individually, or can be bought as a five-hook set.

Light Up Rechargeable Wooden Crochet Hooks
Best for gadget lovers
If you're a fan of tech as well as crochet, you'll love these light-up wooden hooks. We've long been a fan of this innovative type of hook, but these particular ones have had a significant upgrade.
For a start, they're rechargeable via USB, so there’s no need for specialist batteries anymore. They've also been designed so that the light-up hook part is interchangeable (with 11 sizes), so you can just buy one set rather than lots of different hooks.
And finally, the handle is ergonomically designed with a stylish wooden section and soft silicone grip. It's perfect for a bit of night-time hooking!

Best for eco-conscious buyers
Pony makes some of the most essential tools in the knitting and crochet world, and are the go-to brand for many stockists. These Maple double-ended hooks are a great choice for small-scale Tunisian or double-sided crochet. Plus, the sustainable and lovely Maple hardwood makes it an environmentally friendly product too!
Furls Alpha Series Crochet Hook
Best for gifting
Over the last few years, Furls has become a name known for being at the highest of the high end of luxury hooks!
These beautiful ones are all carved from a single piece of wood (seven different types are available, made in Tulipwood, Cocobolo, Blackwood, Purpleheart, Bloodwood, Olivewood, and Rosewood) and hand sanded and polished to the highest quality.
With a focus on providing a hook that really supports your wrists and fingers while you crochet, these durable hooks are a definite investment for your hard-core crocheter. Although they come with somewhat of a hefty price tag, their popularity amongst crocheters seems to suggest they're worth it!
