Product Description
    After crocheting more than ten rugs in two years for my online shop, Crochet x Knit, I began experiencing shooting nerve pain in my right arm; despite performing daily stretch exercises on my arms. One of the issues I had with the crochet hooks I was using was the long stem/handle. I found that the usual stem length was not necessary for crocheting and the bottom portion constantly pressed against the carpal tunnel part of my hand.
     I was experiencing mild pain when I attempted to complete the last rug I starting crocheting for my shop, but I was able to finish by wrapping the hook stem with Sculpey clay. It was necessary to stop every other row and adjust the clay, but the rounded shape felt much better in my hand and alleviated the pain. Eventually, I designed a crochet hook to mimic the clay; the crochet hook  offered here. 
     I designed the handle portion of the hook to fit in the hand so as not to press against the carpal tunnel canal. The handle is closer to the hand’s natural, relaxed position, requiring minimal flexion for gripping.  Its roundness allows gripping with ease and comfort while working crochet stitches.
