Our Journey to Create a BETTER Crochet Hook...

… A long, long time ago in a land far, far away…

Well… Actually… our journey began in 2020 when we were living in Atlanta, Georgia! I got my husband a 3D printer for Christmas and it was inevitable that he would try to make me a 3D printed crochet hook… but the patterns on the 3D websites were, well… less than inspiring and definitely not ergonomic… we KNEW we could do better!

I started watching tutorials on how to use 3D modeling software and after LOTS of trial and error, LOTS of broken and half-printed hooks, and about 10 design changes–we finally found a winning combination! Our hooks are designed to be strong yet incredibly light & ergonomic. Once they are finished printing, they are hand-sanded and then double coated with epoxy resin to ensure they are super smooth! We now have hooks available in more than 30 different sizes!! 🤯

We also now sell hybrid hooks! These hooks have a metal Susan bates, Boye, or Clover brand crochet hook secured into our signature shaped, 3D printed handles! These hooks are also available without resin coating, allowing us to offer them at a fantastic entry level price point to allow more people to try out our hooks and see if they are a great fit for them! 🧡 

We appreciate everyone who has supported and cheered us on though this crazy new venture (my husband was ready to throw a few of these out the window throughout the process 😂😂). We are still learning when it comes to this 3D design process and I am not touting our hooks as “perfect”–as with all handmade things, lots of time, love and effort went into getting these hooks to where they are and I will always see imperfections as the proof that we are not creating a mass produced items. Being hand sanded and coated means that each one will have it’s own one-of-a-kind “finish” but to me, that’s what makes things like this all the more special!

Please feel free to reach out to me if you have questions about our hooks or see what we have in stock and ready to ship in my shop! Thank you so much for your support!

This hook is so great! I have trouble crocheting with larger hooks because of hand and wrist pain. These 3D hooks are SUPER light! You won’t find one like it anywhere else. Plus they stand on their own, have a beautiful color and finish, and the hook size is imprinted in the bottom in case you forget what size it is. I am trying to find patterns so I can buy more sizes!

These hooks are so much more comfortable than other large hooks I have used. I love using them with jumbo chenille yarn!

How Do I purchase your Hooks?

Our hooks are available for purchase in our Etsy shop here. We release new colors every 1-2 months and our hooks range from $25.00 to $49.50.

Why are they so expensive?

We put a LOT of time and effort in behind the scenes to get our hooks right–our pricing allows us to feel good about continuing to be able to print more hooks, maintain & upgrade equipment, and not get burnt out.

As with any handmade product, we have to take into account the costs of materials (3D printer filament, resin, gloves, brushes, sandpaper, printer maintenance, etc), packaging, shipping, fees & taxes, and of course, our time. Each of our hooks take 3-5 hours to print followed by hand-sanding, coating, & quality checks.  

We also look at the market. If you look at comparably sized hooks (10mm and up) from specialty hook makers like Furls, you will find that their 13mm & 18mm candy shop hooks are $49, and their wooden alpha series hooks in 13mm & 15mm are $79. If you try to purchase a custom wooden hand-turned hook, you’re looking at prices ranging from $30 for simpler, smaller sizes (under 10mm) all the way up to $120+ for custom pieces & larger sizes.

We also ensure that if something is wrong, we will go out of our way to make it right! As makers, you know how important it is to recognize your worth–and price your products in a way that accounts for all the hard work you put into them–we are doing the same with our hooks. We love knowing that they are a long term, quality investment for our customers!

Do you sell the STL files?

At this time we do not sell our STL files. 

Do you take custom orders?
