Choosing the right crochet hook

In our crochet classes, we are often asked, “How do I know which size crochet hook is right for the wool I’ve chosen”?

Here’s a guide I found at Crochet Australia to help you on your way:

3ply – 4ply wool            2.0mm – 3.5mm crochet hook

5ply – 8ply (baby)         3.5mm – 4.0mm crochet hook

8ply – Aran                  4.0mm – 4.5mm crochet hook

10ply – 12ply               5.0mm – 6.0mm crochet hook

12ply – 16ply               6.5mm+ crochet hook
