Testing out our new Kinki Amibari lace crochet hooks

This Experimental Wednesday we test out our new lace crochet hooks from Kinki Amibari, a small knitting needle and crochet hook manufacturer in Nara. We wanted to see which hook size would produce the plum blossom we like best, so we made plum blossoms with each of the 7 hooks .

P.S. #8 and #10 make blossoms that have the smallest gaps. #12 has almost no gaps but the flower’s slightly out of shape.

P.P.S. The bamboo handles make these hooks a real joy to work with.

We’ll post an update when this dries!
