Compare needle and hook ranges

If you're new to knitting or crochet, or are used to using quite basic tools, then it can be overwhelming looking at what's available. How will you know what range suits you? What are the differences between the ranges?

We've put this guide together to help you compare. We can't tell you what will suit you best, as that comes down to personal preference. But at least we can make the choice a little easier to make at a glance.

If you're stuck, why not read our guides on the different types of crochet hooks and knitting needles?

If there's a range listed below but you can't find it stocked on our website, get in touch! We can order in items if you'd like them.
