It doesn’t get any more portable than this! This cute 7-piece crochet hook set is perfect for one’s handbag, car, or yarn basket. Or your back pocket.
This is the most compact of the four crochet hook sets in the Classic series. (The others are Classic 2 and Classic 3; Classic 4 is no longer available). This series is not well known in the USA, but is a long time favorite in Japan. Each set is durable, charming, and smartly designed because it’s made by the Tulip Needle Company.
Classic 1 contains:
- 4 Crochet Hooks in 5 sizes (one is double-ended). See details below.
- Yarn Needles in 2 sizes
- Soft vinyl case that opens like a small book, and snaps closed. Each crochet hook has its own slot. A second pocket holds the ruler and 2 yarn needles. Measures 1.5″ x 5.75″ and is .25″ thick when closed.
Crochet Hook Sizes in the Classic 1 in order of smallest to largest size:
- 1 double ended steel crochet hook: 1.80 mm at one end and 2.00 mm at the other. These sizes may correspond with some US size #2, #3, and/or #4 steel hooks. Note that labeled sizes vary widely among different brands of steel hooks (and time of manufacture).
- 3 aluminum crochet hooks:
- 2.50 mm This size fills a gap between US sizes B/1 (2.25 mm) and C/2 (2.75 mm).
- 3.50 mm This is the same as size E/US4.
- 5.00 mm This is the same as size H/US8.
