KNIT IT - HOOK IT - CRAFT IT

Wooden tools for crocheters

£2.50

Product

Lots of different, useful wooden tools for crocheters.  I make all of these from my studio in Cheshire, England. 

I use a solid Beech-wood which is grown in Germany.  I much prefer laser cutting and engraving this to plywood because it is 100% wood, no glues or chemicals.

The grain on the wood is really close and beautiful, making it perfect for this range of products.

Straps - I have also designed straps in leather or cork that have a Chicago screw fixing.  This allows you to easily hang up your knitting tool or attach it to your project bag.

Wooden tools for other crafts - I also design and create wooden tools for knitters, embroiderers and spinners.

 

Tension & needle gauge

Approximately 18cm x 9cm, this crochet tool has everything you need.  A 15cm ruler for checking how much progress you have made, a 5cm tension square and hook gauges from 2 - 10mm.  

The hook gauge openings are made so that they won't fit at all into a space that is too small and should rattle around a little in a size that is too big.  When the hook is in the right-sized opening, it will be a snug fit - just as it should be.  

The tool also has a hole for a strap.  You can see photos of the straps and buy them from within this product listing.

 

Small Tension Square Checker

This small-sized tension square checker is perfect for the on-the-go swatcher, or for those in a rush to get on with a project and are unlikely to make a large tension square. Once you have crocheted a 10cm tension square, you can simply place the checker on top, making sure that the bottom of the inner square lines up to the bottom of a row and goes straight across that row.  The same applies to the stitches up each row.

Approximately 9cm x 9cm. 

The tool also has a hole for a strap.  You can see photos of the straps and buy them from within this product listing.

 

Small hook gauge (2 - 5mm)

The hook gauge openings are made so that they won't fit at all into a hole that is too small and should rattle around a little in a size that is too big.  When the hook is in the right-sized space, it will be a snug fit - just as it should be.  

I concentrated on the most popular hook sizes used.  If you need a gauge for larger hook sizes, see the Large hook gauge (below).

Approximately 9cm x 6cm. 

The tool also has a hole for a strap.  You can see photos of the straps and buy them from within this product listing.

 

Large hook gauge (5.5 - 8mm)

The hook gauge openings are made so that they won't fit at all into a hole that is too small and should rattle around a little in a size that is too big.  When the hook is in the right-sized space, it will be a snug fit - just as it should be.

If you need a gauge for smaller hook sizes, see the Small hook gauge (above).

Approximately 9cm x 6cm. 

The tool also has a hole for a strap.  You can see photos of the straps and buy them from within this product listing.

 

 

 

Crochet stitch conversions

People often struggle to remember the differences between UK and US crochet terminology, so I pulled together this little reminder.  It can be added (with the strap) to your project bag so that you will always know which stitch is which. 

The instructions given are slightly pared back from the original Kitchener stitch.  This is intentional so that you don't get the little ears that appear at the beginning and end of the graft.

Approximately 5cm x 5cm. 

The tool also has a hole for a strap.  You can see photos of the straps and buy them from within this product listing.

 

Product materials, sourcing and PoM Rating 

These wooden products were designed by me at KNIT IT - HOOK IT- CRAFT IT. The Beech-wood used is from Germany.  I design, laser engrave and cut the products in my studio in Cheshire, England. 

The straps are made from leather offcuts (origins unknown) and the Chicago screws are manufactured in the UK.  I laser cut the straps. 

Postage and Packaging

The P&P costs applied are very transparent.  No additional costs are added on, you simply pay for the cost of packaging and the cost of postage.  I don't offer free P&P because what that usually means is that the cost of P&P has been added to the cost of goods.  I think it is better to assume that my customers aren't daft and would rather have transparent P&P costs than the pretence of 'Free P&P' with inflated prices on the items that they are buying.
