I recently talked with Danny over at Laurel Hill about their crochet hooks and how we could work together, he was kind enough to send me an awesome crochet hook to review for you and host a giveaway. I was so excited to receive the hook and was eager to start crocheting with it. I am thrilled to add this unique and lovely hook to my collection! Let me tell you a little bit about Laurel Hill and my thoughts on the hooks, then I will share the giveaway information with you.

Product Review

About Laurel Hill

Laurel Hill was created 19 years ago in Eugene, Oregon by current owner Rick Brown. Originally from Brooklyn, New York, Rick’s long history in product sourcing and factory production led him to develop Laurel Hill’s original line of handmade crochet hooks in 2000. Since then, Laurel Hill has grown – and now carries more than 400 individual products from the world’s top fiber arts manufacturers.

Today Rick co-operates the company with his son, Danny. Danny has worked as a management consultant, and recently returned from the corporate world to work alongside his Dad and grow the family business. The two love working together, as a way for them to constantly stay in contact. They share a love of basketball, small business, and the natural beauty of the Oregon coast.

Laurel Hill Hooks

At Laurel Hill they are best known for their Exotic, Handmade, and Repurposed Wooden Crochet Hooks…Keep reading on their site to learn more!

The Thumbrest

A defining feature of our wooden hooks is their unique thumbrest, which was developed with input from the Crochet Guild of America. This thumbrest provides comfort even during long crochet sessions. Users with arthritis have reported improved performance, longer sessions, and relief from sore hands and repetitive stress.

Pointed Top

In customer reviews we constantly receive positive feedback on our pointed tops. The tops of Laurel Hill hooks are pointed for better precision, and prevent the yarn from splitting.

Exotic Hardwoods

Laurel Hill hooks are created from sustainably-sourced exotic hardwoods. These woods are recognized for being sturdy, durable, and surprisingly light. Each hook is hand-polished to a beautiful shine, which allows them to glide effortlessly over yarn. They come in four beautiful varieties, in 12 sizes D-M.

Sleek Design

Laurel Hill hooks are a highly tactile product. They are elegant in appearance and extremely pleasing to the touch. Whenever they can, they try to put them in the hands of potential customers, and invite them to #GetHooked on Laurel Hill.

Now that I have given you some information about Laurel Hill and their hooks, I am going to show you my hook and what I designed with it.

I typically do not use such a small, skinny hook for several different reasons. However, it was such a treat to crochet with their hook. I designed my Loving Life Scarf using their size H Forest Palm Crochet Hook and Graceful Fibers yarn. The hook is easy to work with and the yarn glides across it nicely. I’m a big fan of the thumbrest. I don’t know why exactly, but it felt particularly comfortable to hold. Maybe it’s the warmth of the wood, the smoothness of the finish, the shape of the curve, or a combination of all of those. I thought this shape was going to cause my tension to be uneven, but it really didn’t. When making my stitches, I naturally stopped my loop in the same spot every time. So my stitches were just as even as they normally are.

  1. What a cool contest! I don’t own any wooden crochet hooks yet, but have been eyeballing some at my LCS for a while now. These Laurel Hill hooks look absolutely gorgeous, and it’s really neat to know that some have been repurposed!

    1. Thanks! I started using wooden hooks about 10 years ago. Now I only use metal when working with certain cotton yarn.

  2. I have 1 wooden hook and I love it. 🥰

    1. Awesome Kara 🙂 What size is it? Currently I use my H and I wooden hook more than the others.

      Have a wonderful day,
      Mistie

  3. I don’t have any wooden hooks. They are beautiful and I would love them. I have a special place for them. Than you for a great contest as this is something I wouldn’t buy for myself.

    1. Good Morning Linda,

      Yes they are beautiful and great to work with. Maybe you will own one soon.

      Good luck!
      Mistie

  4. These are just beautiful! So is your shawl! I’ll be putting that pattern on my to do list, would make a lovely Christmas gift for my mother-in-law. I have never tried wooden hooks.

    1. Good Morning DeAnna,

      Thank you! I had so much fun making the shawl with Laurel Hills hook. The whole process flowed nicely. I think you will like them just as much as I do. 😉

      Have a great day!

  5. I do not own any wooden crochet hooks. So excited to have a chance to win one! Thanks for the opportunity.

    1. Good Luck!

      Have a beautiful day 🙂
      Mistie

  6. I have two sets of wooden hooks but they are not comfortable to use. I noticed that these have a shape that is different and look as though they would be comfortable to use.

    1. Hi Shirla,

      If you don’t mind me asking what brand are your wooden hooks? They are comfortable and easy to use. Good luck!

      Have a fabulous day!
      Mistie

  7. I currently have one wooden crochet hook.

  8. I currently only own 2 wooden crochet hooks, but they are BIG hooks so I hardly ever use them.

  9. I own about 14 hooks made of wood. They are my favorites. I would certainly be over the moon if I won this giveaway. Thank you for the opportunity to participate in this giveaway.

  10. I have a set of bamboo crochet hooks. That probably doesn’t count as wooden. I have one hook – size H – that is an aluminum hook with a wooden handle.

  11. Three Cheers for Brooklyn! Born and still live in Brooklyn. I currently own one wooden crochet hook. It was a birthday gift and I absolutely love it. The smoothness and how it feels when crocheting with it is perfect. Would love to try one of your hooks and get that same feeling. Thanks for this giveaway.

  12. I only own 2. I like wooden crochet hooks. Thank you for the chance! Love your patterns! 😊

    1. Hi Melissa, thank you so much and Good luck!

  13. Zero, but i do own wooden handled hooks that i absolutely love.

  14. Currently I don’t have any wooden crochet hooks but I have looking at them and hoping I will soon have a couple to try!

  15. Currently I only have one wooden hook and I don’t love it because it continually snags my yarn – I don’t think it’s a very high quality hook. I inherited if from my grandmother. I’ve been wanting to try other wooden hoods because I like the feel in my hands, but the poor quality of the one I currently have is holding me back.

    1. Hi,
      That’s a bummer. Maybe you will become a new owner of a awesome wooden crochet hook.

      Good luck!

  16. The shawl is LOVELY!! I have not used a wooden hook. I’m thinking it might be time to try.

    1. Thank you Lynne! I think you will enjoy working with a wooden crochet hook.

      Have a great day!
      Mistie
