I purchased the Crochet Lite Hook, size G, mainly because it’s 4.5mm, most G hooks are 4mm. I’ve been crocheting over 40 years; 95% of the time I use Boye aluminum hooks. The plastic Crochet Lite was a little hard to get used to because yarn doesn’t slide off of it like it does with an aluminum hook. Also the shank seemed a little short, but I soon got used to it. Like Boye crochet hooks, the Crochet Lite is a tapered hook. Another type of hook is called inline. Bates hooks are inline hooks. An inline hook does not taper at the throat. This hook is light in weight, not heavy at all. The wider handle makes it easy to hold if you have arthritis in your fingers. The switch is on the side of the handle & doesn’t get in the way. Batteries come with the Crochet Lite hook. The shaft lights up to provide some light in the immediate area you’re crocheting. Depending on how dark the room is, I might have to hold the shaft above the area I’m crocheting to see a few of the stitches in the row. Most of the time, I don’t need to use the light. It does come in handy when the room is dark & helps make seeing the stitches a little easier. Once in a while, when I’m using a very dark yarn, I will turn the light on to help me see the stitches too. All in all, the Crochet Lite hook is handy for crocheting in low-light areas or for helping see the stitches in dark yarn. The wide handle makes it easier for someone with arthritis to hold.

I purchased this Crochet Lite Crochet Hook from Amazon in my favorite size (G) for an airplane ride. I knew from experience that the personal light in the airplane isn’t always working or is very dim. I started without it lit at first and when the plane turned away from the sun I turned it on! You would have thought I was a rock star! My aisle mate thought it was so cool. Ladies passing my aisle just had to comment. One lady even took the hook out of my hand (mid double crochet) to show her sister two aisles over. Fame aside the hook works very well. It’s smooth so no snagging. The grip is very comfortable and it’s just plain neat to use. The light switches on and off so you don’t have to be constantly squeezing the grip to keep the light on. I thought that was genius. I love the Crochet Lite Crochet Hook when using dark colored yarn. Especially when connecting granny squares. I’m glad I bought it. I also bought the Size “I.” Once the technology catches up with us crocheters perhaps the makers can figure out how to make the lite for a smaller size than “G”. I can image my fellow lace crocheters would love to have a smaller hook that will lite up like these do. They’re not expensive and really fun to use in public. You’ll be looking pretty savvy with your little crochet hooks that lite up. Treat yourself. You won’t regret it!

I bought one of these at first and have now purchased all sizes available. They are great to use in low light and/or with dark yarns. They don’t really help any in decent light with light yarn, but that’s not what they’re made for. They are Sooooooooo comfortable to use with the larger, non-slip place to hold. What I noticed right off is that the “business end” is a little short. I guess I use more of the hook than I thought. At first, I kept hitting the handle. I did get used to it quite quickly, though, and no longer do that. If you do a lot of roll stitches, it probably wouldn’t be a good idea. The other issue, which isn’t one as long as you realize it, is that the sizes are not true. If you need a size I, for example, order a size H; for size H, order size G. Unfortunately, they don’t come larger than a size J. Hopefully, the company will expand its line. Overall, I’m really happy with them and would buy more sizes if they were available. I only gave a 4-star rating because of the short usable shank and the limitation of sizes available.
