[color=indigo]Thanks for the direction. I must have some worsted wt yarn in the stash bag, and I can buy a size H hook.
I have seen crochet hooks that have large handles - almost the size of that of a screwdriver. These look to me to be comfortable and not so likely to result in finger cramps. What think you? Do you have a link where these are available?
Interestingly, when I have taught others to knit, I start them out on a chunky-bulky wool or blend with a good twist and largish round needles, say US 10.5 or 11s (depending on their finger size and dexterity from other activities).
