Knitter's Pride Crochet Hook Review & Giveaway!





Knitter's Pride is a new line of crochet hooks available from WEBS!  Available in either color-coded, polished wood hooks or comfort-grip aluminum hooks, Knitter's Pride hooks are beautiful and a pleasure to work with.

The Knitter's Pride Dreamz crochet hooks are all wood hooks with a polished surface and 2 grooves: 1 next to the hook to prevent stitch slippage and the other in the center for easy thumb position.  The hooks have a bit more drag than an aluminum hook but perform as well as other wood hooks I've tried.  (Found them to be similar to the KnitPro Symphonie hooks) The hook head is moderately pointed, making crocheting in tight stitches easy.  The hooks are a nice length and are warm and comfortable in the hand.  The hook size is printed in US and Metric sizes in white type on the hook.  Color coded, these hooks come in an individual color for each size, making it super easy to grab the hook size you need.


The Knitter's Pride Aluminum Hooks are comfort grip hooks with a short aluminum shaft and hook head.  The grip is cushiony and flat on top and bottom to provide an ergonomic and comfortable experience.  Having almost no drag, the aluminum hooks glide easily through your work.  The hook head has a moderately pointed tip to easily get in and out of stitches.  The hook size is printed in US and Metric sizes in white type on the handle.  I found these hook to be very comfortable.  With a wider handle than ordinary hooks, these hooks are suitable for those who experience hand fatigue with small shaft hooks.

I really enjoyed both hooks a lot.  Though, like with my knitting, I am a tight crocheter, so I preferred the aluminum hooks.  But having ordered Knit Pro Symphonie hooks from overseas because of the beautiful colored wood, I found the Dreamz hooks to be just as effective and quite a bit easier to order!  I was also pleased with the price point at which WEBS is offering these hooks - making them affordable for nearly every crocheter!

Retail Prices:

  9. The wood is soooo pretty but the ergonomic qualities of the aluminum make it a VERY tough decision. This is a VERY tough decision. I don't have very many crochet hooks and that has been my excuse to not learn crochet. (I only have the two I use to repair my knitting.) However, there are so many cute crochet patterns that I'd love to make...

    ReplyDelete
  146. I love your blog, running this contest has steered me towards checking out some of your older posts. I'm really hoping to win the Dreamz hooks.

    ReplyDelete
  147. I should probably go down and throw a few comments for the knitting needles too. I've crocheted since I was 9 and I'm pretty good at it but I'd love to become a better knitter. Maybe a set of Dreamz hooks and needles would be nice.

    ReplyDelete
  148. I love the colors of the Dreamz hooks. I see some of the hand made colored wood hooks on eBay a lot but at $50 plus a hook I kinda stay away. One of my dogs ate one of my wooden hooks once. I have to make sure none of my hooks are laying around.

    ReplyDelete
  149. Dreamz hooks look long and thin. I'd love to win them so I can try them out.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  152. I like the box the rose hooks sit in, I wonder if I could get my husband to make a nice box for the Dreamz hooks that I am hoping to win?

    ReplyDelete
  153. It's raining and gloomy here is MA today. A good day to be sitting in a comfy chair and crocheting with some Knitters Pride Dreamz crochet hooks :) Hope I win them for my winter projects.
