Susan Bates Crochet Hook Set Guide & Review (2020 Update)

The Susan Bates Crochet Hooks Set includes six hooks in popular sizes to suit most of your crocheting projects.

The lightweight, anodized aluminum is durable and sturdy, ready for lots of use. The sizes are easily recognizable because each hook is colored differently.

The anodizing process etches away any rough surfaces. The hook is heat-treated to maintain strength and durability, then polished to ensure it’s smooth. 

The inline head helps maintain a more consistent stitch gauge. Using this type of hook helps reduce wrist motion, allowing for more comfortable crocheting.

Inline hooks are a preferred choice of many crocheters. The head of an inline hook has the same size, shape, and alignment as the shank (where your working stitch sits on the hook).

Susan Bates is largely credited with the invention of the inline head design.

When crocheting with this type of hook, you to draw the hook back through each stitch in one straight line.

The design is to make it more comfortable to use and also create more uniformly shaped stitches.
