    Thanks everyone! I’m making an afghan for my son and will be Tunisian as he does NOT like the holes in regular crochet. This info on the hooks was a needed topic for me!

    I’m looking for 19 mm Tunisian hook for a sweater to crochet. I haven’t been able to find one. Do know a source?

      Shirley the only place I found a 19mm TUNISIAN hook is this address:
      http://www.yarntools.com/crochet-hooks.html There is an email address on that site for you to order the hook. There are plenty of 19mm (size S) regular hooks out there but that is the only Tunisian hook I found.

    I love Tunisian crochet! But when making an afghan even the 14″ hooks can be hard for me to work with, so I finally invested in a set of Knitter’s Pride Dreamz interchangeable hooks. They are GREAT!

    I gotta say about your “what do you expect for $9 for a set of hooks” comment when people complained they were cheaply made. I have to agree with you but you are not going to stop the complainers. I once knew a woman who was having a FIT over the poor quality of an item she purchased at THE DOLLAR STORE. I was like…ummmm…it’s a buck. Get over it. She didn’t appreciate me very much! LOL

    I bought a set of bamboo ones and a set of these. I would rather use these than the bamboo ones.
    Cheers

      Yes I agree the Bamboo ones I got are horrible , they’re not straight and the hook part isn’t cut right, it won’t pick up the yarn!

    I love working with my Tunisian hooks. I make Afghan/blankets with mine. My husband ground down the end & attached a plastic tube. Made doing the rows much, much easier. Then I saw that they do have Tunisian hooks with something like that. Here I thought I had an original. Lol.

    My first ever Tunisian hook my husband found at a thrift store it has a hook at either end. The down side, I have no idea size it is. There are no markings on it at all. I don’t even know who made it. So far that is original. Lol.

      Barbara, hold it against one of your regular hooks of similar size until you find they are the same. Then either write the size on it with a permanent marker or lightly scratch it onto the side of the hook. I bought some of those hooks many years ago and that is what I had to do. I hope this helps you out.

    I find the little wooden ones from Clover are fun to experiment with. They are double ended which is fun to try.

    I’m going to start a project that says I need the Tunusian hook and I had already planned to purchase the very ones you bought regardless of comments I too read, but then I noticed the pattern said it should be double hooks?? I’m fairly new to this so is there different tunisian hooks?

      Double hooks have a hook on each end. I’ll link a picture to show what I mean.

      They are heaps of fun to play with and I would recommend buying them if I were you, You can then use them as a normal tunisian hook as well.

      Double ended hooks are sometimes called “crohooks”. Hope that helps.
