The only things used to carve this crochet hook were my knife and my hands. Like all my hooks I hope for it to become a tool you use for many years to come, and even to pass on to future generations. All my hooks are;

- Irish woods from organic sources
- Made with zero carbon emissions or chemicals
- Extremely durable
- Finished with a coat of beeswax and olive oil
- Great investments for your making
- Wonderfully individual presents for any occasion

This crochet hook is carved from a length of naturally fallen oak wood from a farm in Glendalough, County Wicklow. It is a single hook which has an inverted carving at its end (check out photo 3 for a close up). I have rubbed a coat of beeswax and olive oil into it to enrich the colour of the wood while still being kind to your hands. It is particularly comfortable for right handed use. In the photographs you can see a piece of crochet made using the hook. It ships for free and measures approximately;

12.5cm long
5mm hook head
9.5mm at the handle

I began carving my own crochet hooks as part of a college project investigating self-sufficiency and making my own tools. Before I begin carving I find the best way for a hook to rest comfortably in your hand for many hours happy crocheting. The piece of wood itself determines whether a hook will be single or double ended, left or right handed. No two are ever the same. The creation of these crochet hooks is entirely carbon neutral. If you have any questions about my work please feel free to ask.
