  • This 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've recently started with crochet colourwork and as a result have revised my multiple #HookerRing to a more luxurious model (after all, where's the point in making them if I can't make exactly what I want !!)

    You can choose the more affordable double strand option, where I use recycled sterling silver wire I've flattened in my rolling mill before forming, or the more luxurious option that's made from 6+grams of recycled sterling silver and has 3 loops with 3 different finishes for you to choose from - beaten, bark or smooth
    This listing is for the triple, which is 12mm wide, weighs just over 6g and has loops of approximately 4mm in diameter

    The wire variant is very easy to adjust the size of, the triple is harder for you to adjust because of all that silver. I recommend you tell me the exact size you want your triple ring. The default is a UK L (as shown on my hand in the photos)

    The loops for all of these are suitable for yarn up to 'chunky' as the loops are approximately 4mm in diameter. Contact me if you need anything other than this.

    Adjust the sizing of the wire ones 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)

    You can see videos of #HookerRings in use on my Instagram and YouTube, including some fabulous photos from customers using theirs. (buy the gorgeous natural yarn I'm using here: https://www.kosykitchenfibres.com/)

    I'd love you to 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.

    I'm nearly as bad at filming as crochet (!) but have managed to take a clip of me setting up and using my single loop ring to put in this listing.

    These aren't hallmarked, as they are below the threshold of 7.78g that's the legal requirement for Assay here in the UK.

    New for July 2022 is a wonderful video created by Gemma from @CraftiGem in which she demonstrates, clearly and calmly how to use one of the multiple options for continental colourwork knitting.

    Sterling Silver Hooker Ring - for multiple strands of knitting or crochet

    £48.00Price
    • Everything is made using sterling silver. Many pieces are unique and one of a kind items, some are ranges.

      Bullion (ie raw precious metal) is expensive and increases in price regularly.

      I've decided that rather than increase the price of all my old stock to reflect this, I will just update the new pieces to reflect the cost of the metal when I bought it. This is why you will find some spinner rings, for example at different price points.

       

    • All my hooker rings are adjustable, so unlike with a regular ring, you don't need to measure precisely - standard will fit most people with room for expansion, but I am very happy to either make one specially to fit, or adjust one I've got ready made to the right size; regardless of if you order small, standard or large ;-)

      However, as most people wear rings at the palm, and the hooker ring between the first and second joint, the size of your 'regular' rings is most likely going to be too large.

      So, if you know the size of the finger at the area you will be wearing it (eg for me it's between the first and second joint of my middle finger, which is a J, where as my wedding ring is an R) let me know and I'll make and set it to that size for you.

      If you are unsure how to gauge the size, then to calculate that size, take a piece of paper, and tape it in a circle to your finger where you plan to wear the tension guide.

      Remove it, cut it and then you can measure the length (in millimetres) which will give you the circumference of your finger at that point. I can then identify the ring size and set your hooker ring appropriately - usually I set it about 1/2 or a whole size smaller to allow you to do the final adjustment once you have the hang of it.
