I recently heard from a crochet blog reader who received this set of tiny hooks and wanted to know more about them. I didn’t have a lot of information myself but thought that someone else out there might have some ideas.
Here’s what Carrie wrote:
“Hello. I just inherited a set of what I think are old crochet needles. The only reason why I think they are crochet needles is because one of the four interchangeable tips has a hook on it. They are tiny – just 4 inches with the base and the tip attached. I’ve never seen crochet needles like it before. Please let me know if you can help me with identification – thanks!”
After Carrie sent me a photo of the hooks, here’s what I thought:
“Oh cute! Yep, those seem to be vintage crochet hooks. I’ve seen small ones before … I think that they are used mostly for tatting, but I could be wrong about that. How fun!”
I’m the first to admit, though, that my knowledge of vintage crochet hooks is limited, so I thought I’d see what you guys think about them. Leave any thoughts or comments for Carrie in the comment section below.
