Any crocheter that’s been hooking for a while will already have a fair few different hooks to hand. But if you want to treat yourself (or maybe find a gift for the crocheter in your life), then there’s a huge range of luxury hooks out there for you to try. Crochet hooks come in a wide variety of materials and design, so we’ve compiled this list of some of our favourite fancy hooks. Go on… treat yourself!
Knit Pro Waves Crochet Hook Set
Although many luxury hooks are made from wood, some crocheters prefer the strength of metal hooks (especially if you’re a tight crocheter). The Knit Pro Waves set features 9 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-6mm, making them perfect for crocheters that like making amigurumi and other small scale projects.
Prym Ergonomic Hooks
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 that you won’t have any difficulty making your stitches, and the hooks are also handily colour coded by size. Prym hooks are available to buy individually, or can be bought as a 5 hook set.

Light Up Rechargeable Wooden Crochet Hooks
If you’re a fan of tech as well as crochet, then you’ll love these light-up wooden hooks. We’ve long been a fan of these types of innovative hooks, but these particular ones have had a significant upgrade. For a start, they’re rechargeable via USB, so 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 having to buy lots of different hooks. And finally, the handle is ergonomically designed with a stylish wooden handle and soft silicone grip. It’s perfect for a bit of night-time hooking!
