This week’s Free Furls Hook of the week goes to the wonderful Adrienne Davis. It’s a mega-chunky hook that comes with a free skein of extra thick ‘Swagger’ yarn. The wood that we used here is Southern Live Oak- an extremely durable, American wood that has chatoyant side grain and a super smooth feel.
This is sure to be a great hook for super-fast projects since the stitch size is so large, and we can’t wait to see what Adrienne does with it.
We’d recommend that you check out Adrienne’s tumblr, makemecrochet.tumblr.com and that you’d heart, reblog this post, or follow us to be entered into a chance to win next week’s free hook of the week!

This week’s free hook of the week is a beautiful Camelthorn wood, 5mm crochet hook. Camelthorn is a beautiful South African hardwood related to the Acacia tree with a fiery red-black-yellow grain pattern.
This hook is an absolute beauty. Reblog or heart this post to be entered into next week’s drawing for the free hook of the week!
A recent custom order by one of our wonderful customers opened our eyes to how scandalously beautiful wooden crochet hooks can be. Her order combined two Black and White Ebony hooks with a Brazilian Bloodwood hook in a beautiful fusion of Rocky-Road ice cream colors with Deep, scarlet and crimson colors.
Both Black and White Ebony hooks have some of the most mysterious and mesmerizing dalmatian-like striping, and this wood is probably one of the smoothest woods to hold in your hands.
The Bloodwood hook, on the other hand, is a solid but gorgeous red color. Furls has to boast a little bit about how perfect the balance on this hook is; since it balances perfectly on that tangential teardrop body (picture above) it means the weight of the hook is distributed evenly throughout the hook. This makes for the most comfortable crocheting experience on earth as the perfect weight and balance fit harmoniously in and fuses with your hands.
Custom orders are always welcome at Furls, just email firstname.lastname@example.org to get started. Also, who wants to be the magnificent recipient of this week’s free Furls Crochet Hook?
"The average crocheter holds their hook for thousands of hours during their lifetime. Those hours can either be healthy, enjoyable, comfortable, and beautiful if you’ve got a well-designed, well balanced hook, or damaging to your hands long-term and not so beautiful if you use conventional hooks”
Apparently, a Furls hook is worth the investment. Furls Crochet took a little break in Winter of 2011 but they’ve opened back up this summer with an amazing new line of beautiful, super-luxurious crochet hooks
Rumors are that there are plans to release a more economic Standard line at about half the price of their very pricey Signature line, but the sheer beauty of these hooks make them worth it. It’s pretty exciting to see the most expensive crochet hooks in history in all their glory, like this enormous 9” long, 30mm Rosewood hook.
Definitely only for the passionate crochet enthusiasts, but guaranteed to please given their 100% customer satisfaction rating so far! Check them out at furlscrochet.com
