|Dynamo pint-sized crochet hook by Sistermaide.|
Manufacturer: Sistermaide (on Etsy)
Type of Hook: hackberry wood, size "J"
On the Hook: scarf for donation using short-rows of Tunisian stitching (original pattern)
What I love about the hook: The hook was recommended by a participant on Ravelry in the Crochet Liberation Group. I had never heard of this hook maker before, so being a fan of collecting crochet hooks I decided to give one a try. Even though the length (5 1/4") was listed when I purchased it from the Sistermaide Etsy shop, I didn't give it much thought until it arrived in the mail.
Wow; this is one of the shortest crochet hooks (aside from steel hooks) that I own. I wasn't sure how I would like it until I took it out for an official test drive. What I've found is that this little hook is like a sports car -- it wants to go! Go! GO! lol
Even with its slight taper, I am enjoying creating short-rows of Tunisian stitches with it; the head shape is perfect for "bar hopping," and the length fits comfortably in my palm. Did I mention that it is lightweight too? I like that! And I'm looking forward to hand-crocheting more projects in the future with this pint-size dynamo crochet hook! Thanks for the recommendation "OGirl." :)
