Just when you think you have all of the crochet tools you need, something new and exciting comes along! I ordered this beautiful jumbo crochet hook from Jenkins Woodworking, and it is the most remarkable jumbo hook I have ever seen. I love that it was handmade by an Oregon woodworker and his wife. I purchased one of their hairpin lace looms last year and was so impressed, I didn't hesitate to place another order with them. There aren't a lot of places to buy jumbo hooks, and these are the best quality I have found. I also love that they wrote a personal note on the invoice:
I ordered a 25mm (size U) hook to get started with. If I decide I like large scale crochet, I think I will order the 22mm (size T) and 28mm (size V) as well.
After I came across this inspiring blog post showing a giant granny square used as a chair covering, I fell in love with the idea of extreme crochet, and I knew I had to try it!
With the right yarn and doily pattern, a jumbo hook makes an incredible rug!
|This gorgeous chair has been cross stitched, but I am thinking something similar and equally effective could be done with the surface crochet technique and a jumbo hook.|
Now, I am off to find some ultra chunky yarn to play with!
