• TThis listing is for an individually, handcrafted, solid sterling silver, fully adjustable #HookerRing to reduce cramp and aid with evening tension from the yarn ball to the work.

     

    I'm very new to crochet, (I can't knit at all) but in 2019 I was invited to take my jewellery to a local fair, celebrating all things yarny, called Wild About Wool. I wanted to make some specific items that would be of interest, and whilst I thought about tiny balls of wool with needles for necklaces and earrings, I remembered something my nan used to have. My granddad had adjusted her tailor's thimble to put a curve in it, to help her separate her wool when knitting.

     

    I must have been under 7, because my great grandmother was still living with them at this point. I only remember the ring from the one visit, and none of them remain today to help me with my memory. I tried to replicate the principle, and created these, adjustable, sterling silver Hooker Rings. I took them along to the fair, and sold out of all I made on day 1.

     

    I've made more, and here they are. Each will be slightly different, as I make them individually. You can adjust the sizing by pinching the tops together, or squeezing them apart or of course, you can tell me the size you want yours to be, and I'll adjust it for you before I dispatch it (you'll still be able to tweak it)

    I've had feedback saying it would be helpful to order them in different sizings, so

    Standard = adjustable from UK D to Q, set at about UK G (USA 3.75)

    Small = adjustable up to to a K, set at about UK D (USA 2)

    Large = Adjustable up to Z+1, set at about UK R (USA 8.75)

     

    If you don't specify the size, I'll enclose a standard, and if you need to either have it adjusted, or exchange for a different size, then just message me and we'll arrange it.

     

    You can see videos of them in use on my Instagram and Facebook pages, and also at LilyPondYarns (now https://www.kosykitchenfibres.com/ ) pages. (buy the gorgeous fine natural wool shown in my photo from them here https://www.kosykitchenfibres.com/)

     

    I've found that wearing it on my middle finger, saves me having to tangle my little finger and stops the cramp I was getting with my crochet.

     

    Since I created this listing I've sold lots of these, and people have been kind enough to share photos of them in use - you can see their photos if you type #HookerRing into Instagram. I'm trying to collate them all into the highlights on my profile. I'd love if you would share a photo of your #HookerRing in action too!

     

    It's really interesting how people wear them differently- on their leading hand, or not and turned in or out  (see this for yourself, and add your own #HookerRing selfie over on Instagram)

     

    Multiple loop option shown last on my finger and with crochet hooks, single loop, which has a variety of basic stamping options - hearts, flowers, dots, pawprints, snowflakes or stars shown in mini montages.
