About Our Hooks
about our hooks
CroChic Styles® originally started off with handmade finished crochet products and patterns, but it has evolved into something bigger and better for the maker community!
One day in 2018, as Patty was making a cowl, she complained about how her new ergonomic crochet hook she recently purchased was cramping her hands and was too heavy. To her, the crochet hook didn’t seem so “ergonomic” after all.
Her birthday was coming up and Paul wanted to do something nice for her. He busted out his lathe and some wood, deciding to his own design of a crochet hook for her. Let’s just say it wasn’t very user friendly…so he made another one..and another one..and another one. With each change, Patty noticed that there was something in his handle design that had potential.
After several months, Paul made a wooden hook that worked great for Patty. But, naturally, she asked the question that started it all…
“Is there a way to make this sparkly?”
That is when our hooks changed from wood to resin, although the original intent was still just for Paul to make a hook for Patty as a gift! He took everything he researched and learned from different grip types and applied it to his first full resin hook. And of course, it was “sparkly”!
After nearly another year of research, process design, testing, trial and error we have what you see today–our patent pending “3rd generation“ of full resin crochet hooks.
We then wanted to share this luxury, ergonomic, fun and vibrant crochet hook. So we did. Our handmade ergonomic crochet hooks are durable, light, comfortable and of course sparkly. These hooks are made from a resin with dyes, glitters, powders and other strengthening materials. They go through a multi-stage process while curing to ensure they are strong with no defects – 100% handmade!
