Recently, I started seeing a lot of these beautiful rainbow wood crochet hooks on my friends’ Instagram feeds so I decided to give them a try myself. We Crochet Official/Knit Picks sent this crochet hook set to me so I could try it out and give my followers an honest review (thanks We Crochet friends!). Follow along as I take you through what this Knit Picks Tunisian Crochet Hook Set includes and how I feel about it!
The complete crochet hook set comes with the following components:
- Radiant Interchangeable Crochet Hooks (6 in. in length) (8 total) – E-4 (3.5mm), F-5 (3.75mm), G-6 (4.0mm), 7 (4.5mm), H-8 (5.0mm), I-9 (5.5mm), J-10 (6.0mm), and K-10.5 (6.5 mm)
- Sturdy Black Cables 4 total – 2 each of 21″ and 29″ lengths (crochet hook tip to end of cable)
- Accessories: snapped clear vinyl case, 8 black end caps, and 2 cable keys
My favorite part about these wooden crochet hooks is the smooth finish. The main component of these hooks is strong layers of laminated birch. I cannot get over how smooth they feel in my hand.
There is even a thumb rest which allows a good grip when crocheting. I also love the weight of these hooks. They aren’t super lightweight but they aren’t super heavy either which is perfect for small and big projects!
The join is very smooth which means yarn will not snag on the hooks. The compact and portable case is perfect for on-the-go travel crochet! The end caps are high quality and the cable keys ensure a snug fit. This ensures that the cable and end caps don’t come undone while you’re crocheting. I highly recommend using the cable keys for screwing and unscrewing the cables and end caps. The cables are very flexible but also thick and sturdy which makes them perfect for heavier projects like shawls and blankets!
One thing that is a little bit different for me, especially as a Tunisian crocheter, is the rounded head. I have a sharp head on my other Tunisian crochet hooks which makes it easy to pick up loops as I do my forward pass. With this set, picking up loops for the foundation row is kind of hard. But once I get beyond the foundation row, picking up stitches is a little bit easier. It’s still different from the sharp head crochet hooks but I think with practice I’ll get the hang of it! The rest of the features make up for this one difference though so I’m not complaining!
How do these work?
All you have to do is attach one of the interchangeable cables to the end of the Radiant Interchangeable Crochet Hook by screwing it in place. Next, attach the cable cap to the opposite end of the cable to keep your stitches securely on the cable. You can mix and match a large range of interchangeable hook sizes with cables available in 21″ all the way up through 57″. This means you can create projects ranging from scarves to garments and blankets.
