    This is such a great idea. My hand hurts from my hooks as well and I had been using those foam things you put on pencils, but they were not big enough. I will have to give this a try. Thanks!

    This is exactly what I have had in my brain but couldn’t work out how to do it.I suffer from cramped hands as well,I love to crochet and this will make it all the more easier.I have bought hooks with a thicker shaft but where it starts on the hook isn’t smooth enough and hurts the thumb.
    This was sent to me from a very good friend who knew I was after something like this.
    Thank you thankyou thankyou.

    Thanks for the tutorial. I have also been using the grips which go on pencils and it has helped but isn’t always the most comfortable. This is an idea I will definitely try!

    Great idea. This way I can have unique hooks and shape them to what’s comfortable to me!

    I had thought about this, and played with a little of the clay (sculpey primo) but it seemed like it would be heavy and would be quite tiring to use. Is this true? are different brands of clay different weights? does the clay lighten up when it is baked? Thanks so much.

    I just made an entire set of these hooks. They don’t seem any heavier to me. Instead of putting the white on the top I gently pressed a rubber stamp from my scrapbooking stuff into the clay before I cooked it. Worked great! Now I can get back to my crochet project because they have cooled off.

    These are so pretty and unique! Definitely have to try this for myself.

    For Fran. Yes, there are some clays that are lighter weight. See Etsy’s Polymer Clay Barn. I believe somewhere on there she mentions the clay she uses. I have a set of hooks she covered and they are very lightweight.

    Can I use plastic hooks or will they melt?

      Hi Mana,

      I’m not sure but I’m guessing they would melt. You could always test with a hook you don’t use and see what happens.
