Hookfully’s Top 10 – Best Crochet Hooks For Children
I have been on the hunt for the best crochet hooks for kids! Yes i know, children can use any crochet hook, but these handmade beauties are a fab luxury novelty to add to a children’s crochet set. If your child loves crocheting or making amigurumi these adorable crochet hooks will make the perfect gift!
What Is The Best crochet hook Size to buy for a child?
It’s easier for beginners to clearly see stitches with a chunky yarn, so its a great starting yarn for children. Chunky yarn works best with a 6mm crochet hook for most projects, a 5mm crochet hook will be best if they want to crochet their own amigurumi toys (because using a smaller hook will prevent gaps and stop the stuffing popping out). Of course, kids can use any yarn, your skein will usually have a recommended crochet hook size on the label.
