ChiaoGoo Circular Crochet Hook
Have you ever seen circular crochet hooks? Yarnies may be familiar with circular knitting needles, but circular crochet hooks are an entirely different adventure. Though this particular tool is a rare find, it will open the door to a new way to crochet!
This circular crochet hook from ChiaoGoo is an excellent tool for making afghans. Double ended circular crochet hooks enable you to create large-scale projects using the Tunisian method, or afghan stitch. What differs between the circular hook and a traditional Tunisian hook is the unique way to change colors. The double-ended circular hooks enable you to change colors effortlessly and beautifully. You can make a beautiful striped afghan with a stunning effect: one side of the afghan will have a higher concentration of one color, and the reverse side will have a higher concentration of the other color. Using this hook, you can make a reversible afghan!
ChiaoGoo makes circular hooks in four lengths (16", 24", 32", and 40"), allowing for a range in project size. You could use the smallest cord size (16") to make a thick, cozy scarf for winter, or you can use the largest size (40") for a snuggly afghan.
Regular double-ended crochet hooks allow you to complete smaller scale projects with the same effect. Scarves, hats, gloves, and mittens can all be created with this unique, striped, reversible look.
Fans of the knit look will adore this method because Tunisian crochet involves a form of weaving. You can create a faux knit look when you use the circular crochet hook for this reason. Tunisian crochet really opens up new possibilities for crocheters! If you haven't tried this method before, now is the time to start. Sharpen that crochet skill by using this hook to make new and unique patterns that will amaze your friends and family for years to come!
