The crochet hook measures 5 3/4" to 8" long depending on the size of the hook and is 3/4" to 1" in diameter at its widest.
General guidelines are sizes
Sizes K (6.5mm) and smaller are 5 3/4" to 6" long.
Sizes L (8mm to M (9mm) are 6 1/2" to 71/4" long.
Sizes N (10mm) and larger are 7" to 8" long.
Hooks with multiple woods tend to be to the longer side of these measurements. The reason for the variation is that each hooks is hand turned and while the standard shape, which gives the ergonomic advantage, is maintained, each hook is uniquely it's own.
Because this hook is handcrafted there will be variation in appearance, grain and color. No two Hooks will be the same! Pictures are examples of what you will receive.
The hook is inlayed with real turquoise that has been crushed in small bit and powder and in large voids a manmade Turquoise will be used to keep cost down. The amount of turquoise will vary, depending on the voids in the burl.
