Hi everyone! :)
I sneakily pre-announced this giveaway on Instagram the other day because I just couldn’t contain myself! Today I’m reviewing a gorgeous set of KnitPro Symfonie wooden crochet hooks! :)
Are you familiar with this pretty case? It says KnitPro on the front, so there must be something good inside… Let’s flip it over!
Oooooh, fancy coloured wood… Let’s open it!
Yum! Eight wonderful single ended crochet hooks! :) This set comes with hooks sizes 3.50mm, 4.00mm, 4.50mm, 5.00mm, 5.50mm, 6.00mm, 6.50mm and 8.0mm, and each size has it’s own colour. The wood has a flat thumb rest that I personally find very comfortable. Here’s the 4mm hook next to some other brands:
From left to right: the standard Clover hook, the Clover Soft Touch hook, the KnitPro Wave, and the KnitPro Symfonie. You can see right away that the Symfonie is in it’s own league.
While it doesn’t have a big comfortable grip like the other hooks, it’s still great to use. It is made out of wood, which is very comfortable during crocheting because it warms to your skin temperature. I’ve tried some projects with this hook and I did have to get used to the shape of the hook a little; also my hand had to adjust to the thinner grip. But once I got accustomed to that, I was hooked! (bad pun? a must!)
The wooden hook doesn’t snag on the yarn, as one might expect. This is a big no no for me, snagging hooks, so I paid very close attention to this!
The case itself comes with this handy pocket for things like patterns, scissors and stitch markers; perfect to have on the go!
There is just something ‘aaaaahw’ worthy about a nice set of hooks like this, don’t you think? :)
This set is available on Amazon, but I’m also giving one set away today to a lucky reader!
For your chance to win, leave a comment on this blog post stating your favourite hook size. I’m happy to ship everywhere, so this giveaway is open to readers world wide!
Good luck everyone; I’ll draw a winner next week :)
