Plastic crochet hooks are probably the most common type of hook. They’re inexpensive and don’t rust. They flex a bit, so your hands won’t tire as quickly. Plastic hooks are available in jumbo sizes, but not in a small hook size.
Plastic hooks are perfect if you are a beginner. They won’t cost too much when buying the you need.
Yarns sometimes don’t glide over the hook as quickly due to friction. This can create a ‘squeaky feeling.’ Some people find working with a plastic crochet hook causes their hand to sweat.
I cover the pros and cons of various Plastic crochet hooks below.
