Mega Hook - Size 60 (1.25" dia.)
REALLY BIG Mega Hooks for Knitting & Crochet
Mega Hooks are purpose made for both crochet and knitting; one tool does the work of two ...and they are BIG! ...well, at least the big ones are BIG.
If you've looked at the size 50 Mega Hooks and thought they were big, something happens when we take the leap to size 60. That one quarter of an inch more in diameter between the 50 and the 60, equates to another three quarters of an inch in circumference. If you touch the tip of your thumb to the tip of your middle finger, a small adult hand can just wrap around a size 60 Mega Hook. However, if this is the way you want to go and you're up for a real fiber arts adventure, then welcome to the world of Big Hookers; a world full of unusual spirits in fiber artistry.
Designed and handcrafted from Canadian Maple or local Birch by fiber artists who actually use them, these tools have evolved to make knitting with jumbo-sized knitting needles a whole lot easier.
Double-ended for greater flexibility
Each needle is double pointed and has a hook carved at one end, which not only makes crochet with chunky art yarns or tiny hands, as easy as eating pie, but adds a completely new dimension to your knitting experience. For Tunisian crochet, select the 'Hook at both ends' option and your Mega Hook will have hooks carved at both ends so that you can work in both directions without removing the Mega Hook. Tunisian-style crochet is sometimes called Afghan stitch or Moroccan knitting, however these terms can have slightly different meanings to different people.
Small holes drilled at each end of the knitting needle enable pegs or stoppers (included) to hold your project in place when you finally force yourself to stop wriggling in your chair and take a break.
Hang 'em on the wall
Each Mega Hook has been carefully shaped and sanded using progressively finer grade sand papers, finishing with an ultra fine polish and several coats of pure Tung oil, to provide a natural, wipe-clean, satin finish. FAB’s Mega Hooks are not only a delight to handle and to work with, but the really big sizes are even adorning walls around the world as pieces of art. Get rid of those morbid moose antlers and crossed swords, hang a pair of four foot long knitting poles on the wall and present a message of peace and creativity. Amen to that!
FAB’s unique range of Mega knitting hooks will set you up for almost any project. From 14 inches long to 48 inches and in sizes 17 to a massive size 84 (one and three-quarter inch diameter), these knitting hooks are perfect for both knitting and crochet.
