Understanding the anatomy of a crochet hook will help you to decide what hook will work best for you and your project.
The following video will help you to understand each part of a crochet hook and its function. You’ll see how different hooks can work better for different projects. If you are crocheting with a tight gauge, you will want a sharper point, if you are using a loosely spun yarn and a loose gauge, you may want a crochet hook with a blunter point. Some stitches require many loops to be on the hook at the same time, so you’ll need the gauged section of the shaft to be long enough.
