10 Essential Crochet Tools

Hello Friends! I am excited to share with you my top 10 Essential Crochet Tools that I think every Crochet Artist needs in their life! I have been crocheting for about 7 years at the time of this post. I certainly started off with a very different set of tools than I use today! I’ll bet you can say the same as well!

For me, lots of trial and error went into the decision to try new tools. I can be very frugal at times, so it was sometime difficult to decide to try more expensive items, but sometimes it truly is worth the investment! Value of course is in the eye of the beholder, with both form and function playing a role. The exciting thing is there are so many awesome handmade options now! 

You could spend hours browsing through all the beautiful, creative, handmade crochet tools on Etsy. I’m not speaking from personal experience of course. That was certainly not my favorite part about writing this article. Well, actually getting to meet all of the wonderful sellers on Etsy was truly the best part, but the looking was a very close second!

These are a few of my favorite things…

My List of 10 Essential Crochet Tools are all tools that I use every day. I have tried to compile a list of a variety of options, but of course only touch the tip of the iceberg of the amazing options out there! How much time do you spend crocheting each week? For me that answer varies from week to week, but is usually upwards of 20 hours. That’s a significant amount of time, wouldn’t you say? A very happy investment of time in fact!
