This crochet hook is made from JARRAH BURL and GABON EBONY with TURQUOISE. This hook is shaped with a larger handle to relieve stress on the hand and wrist when crocheting. The hook has an Ergonomic shape that fits nicely in the hand.
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 1/4" long.
Sizes L (8mm to M (9mm) are 6 3/4" to 7 1/4" long.
Sizes N (10mm) and larger are 7 1/2" 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.
You can request a specific length please contact me before ordering a custom length.
