15 luxury crochet hooks you can buy online

Knit Pro Waves Crochet Hook Set

Best for small-scale designs

knitpro-waves-crochet-hook-set

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-crochet-hook

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.

The long, smooth shaft on the hooks also ensures you won't have any difficulty making your stitches, and the hooks are handily colour-coded by size.

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

Knit Pro Symfonie Crochet Hooks

Best for fans of fancy crochet hooks

knitpro_symfonie-crochet-hooks

Knit Pro has a strong reputation for making high-quality crochet hooks, and the brand’s multi-coloured Symphonie collection is perhaps its prettiest set. Hand-crafted by skilled artisans, these wooden hooks have grooves and smooth surfaces for a top-quality finish.

They’re not only beautiful; they’re also lightweight and easy to handle.

KnitPro Symfonie Rose Crochet hook set

Best for a special occasion gift

KnitPro Symfonie Rose Luxury Crochet hook set

So maybe you like the idea of a KnitPro set, but you want some REALLY fancy crochet hooks! Well, do we have the product for you! This Knitpro Symfonie Rose crochet hook set features the same quality hook design as regular Symfonie hooks, however these are made in stunningly gorgeous Rosewood, and come in their own monogrammed box!

And if that hasn't convinced you that these really are some high-end luxury crochet hooks, they also have a genuine Swarovski crystal embedded into the end of each hook too! That's us sold!

Gold and Silver crochet hooks

Best for metallic finish

Gold luxury crochet hook

Perhaps you want to buy a really special crochet hook as a gift for a loved one, then we have found the perfect hooks (although we won't blame you if you just want to treat yourself too). These gorgeous luxury crochet hooks are made by PatioAlmaJewelry from Hungary, who makes these silver- and gold-plated crochet hooks by hand.

You can see the artistry in the hammered details that are left on the handle section (which also give you that bit of extra grip), while the hooks are still smooth and solid - and should last a lifetime! There's also the option to have them engraved to so you can really make them personalised - now that is special!

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!

Pony Double Ended Maple Hooks

Best for eco-conscious buyers

pony_maple_hooks

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

furls-crochet-hook

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!

Bamboo crochet hook set

Best for easy storage

bamboo_crochet_hook_set

If you're after a full set of lovely wooden crochet hooks (and a nice case to keep them in) then this bamboo hook set is for you! There are 20 hooks ranging in size from 1mm to 10mm, featuring smooth bamboo handles and strong stainless steel tips, all packed up in a handy carry case!

Addi Swing Ergonomic Hooks

Best for ergonomic grip

addi-swing-crochet-hooks

The Addi Swing hooks are another great choice if comfort is your main priority when choosing a new hook. Their ergonomically designed, soft-grip handles help you say goodbye to aches and pains and crochet for hours on end.

Each accessory comes in its own bright colour and the hook part is 4.5cm long, meaning you've got plenty of room for those seven treble cluster stitches!

Letto Hand Turned Ergonomic Custom Crochet Hooks

Best for custom-made designs

letto-handturned-wooden-crochet-hook

If you're after something really special, you could always get a custom-made hook! These hand-turned hooks by Letto on Etsy are made from two different types of wood, and can be combined with metal tips by clover or KnitPro hooks.

These fancy crochet hooks are custom made for you, so the family-run workshop in the Ukraine will make sure the materials and design are exactly what you want (or you can just order pre-made hooks from them if you're not fussy).

We think this would be an incredible gift for any crocheter!

Bowltech Crochet Hooks

Best for colourful design

BowlTechCrochet Luxury crochet hook

Fancy a wooden ergonomic crochet hook that has that little extra detail to make it really unique? Then check out these hooks by Allan of BowlTechCrochetHooks! He combines gorgeous woods with stunning resin sections to make hand-turned crochet hooks like we've never seen before.

There's a range of different types of hooks available, with light or dark woods and plenty of colourful resin effects, some even come with flowers set in the resin!

Personalised Bamboo Crochet Hook

Best for a funny present

personalised-crochet-hook

Ok, so maybe some of the hooks in our list cost a bit more than you’d like to spend, but you still want to get something special? Well, whether you're buying for yourself or buying a gift for a loved one, we think these personalised bamboo hooks will really add that special touch to any crocheter’s toolbox!

Addi Olive Wood Crochet hooks

Best for chunky handles

Addi Olive Wood luxury crochet hooks

We love the chunky style of these gorgeous hooks from Addi. These metal hooks feature a smooth olive wood handle with extra grooves to give you that bit more grip, and come in sizes from 2.5mm to 6mm.

Artisan crochet hooks by LovaniiDesign

Best for hand-painted design

Artisan hand carved luxury crochet hook

If you're after a hook that really is unique and completely made by hand, then check out these Artisan crochet hooks by Anna of LovaniiDesign. All of her hooks are hand carved from a single piece of wood, hand painted, and coated with varnish to protect the painting and give the hook a smooth finish.

They can be used as a functional hook as long as you're gentle, although they have really been designed as a piece of art and they are quite delicate - so you may just want to put them somewhere where you can admire them rather than risk breaking one!
