    My hands tend to ache after working for hours with projects that have the challenge of intricate detail - and especially when I work on something that requires a tight hold or pull on the thread or yarn. (For example, I often work with cotton yarn and pull tightly so that I get a nice, even, and compact stitch …)

    Well, this AMAZING Skacel Addi Swing Hook has become my "GO-TO" hook for all crochet projects that I undertake. Every single time I approach my yarn and choose a project, I pick up this hook first. I was very amused when I realized recently that, since I only have it in the F/4.0mm size (so far!), I had begun to subconsciously choose projects and yarns that explicitly fit the hook … and not the other way around!

    The comfort of the grip is beyond compare. The ease of the movement exactly matches my own stitching motions. In my hand, the angle of the hold works perfectly.

    One thing, in particular, that I want to point out as MOST excellent about the Skacel Addi Swing Hook is that it has a very smooth and nicely-shaped, rather "rounded" hook. I've found this promotes (or "allows," in my case) MUCH less accidental splitting of the yarn. What an absolute God-send for me.

    Sigh. I guess the time has come for me to break down and actually purchase this amazing creation in a few more sizes ... :-)

    Without a blink of hesitation, I would recommend the Skacel Addi Swing Hook ... every second of every day to every person who even THINKS about crocheting. Even at the somewhat double-take inducing price, you really will be happy about making this choice.

    It's almost like wearing fuzzy bunny slippers on your hands when you crochet: comfy, cozy and more than a little magical, mystical, and fun!

    I have used these for over a week comes back and hits me in the chest or in my face if I'm working without my glasses on. The length between the hook and the handle is too long. I find myself holding it just with my forefinger above the handle. Also I feel the angle the hook is set in the handle is off. I feel like I have to hold the hook almost on the sides of the handle instead of where the fingers are meant to be placed during crochet. I didn't buy mine from WEBS I got them somewhere else.This is the second time I'm leaving this review. The first one was never posted.

    Comments about Skacel Addi Swing Hook:

    While this hook takes some getting used to, once you do, your work will fly. It is also terrific for fixing knitting mistkes such as picking up dropped stitches. I normally hold a hook like a pencil, so it took a while to find a comfortable position. I like the fact that there are soft and hard areas. The only complaint I have is that I have not seen all the sizes offered as a set. This could be because the cost would be prohibitive; each individual hook (as seems to be the case with all Addi products) is expensive. However, I expect this hook to last a lifetime as do my Addi nneedles.

    Comments about Skacel Addi Swing Hook:

    After years of knitting only and then starting to crochet, I found the regular hooks very disturbing, uncomfortable for my hands, I got cramps etc. After trying out the 3,5 mm Addi Swing hook, I was hooked and ordered every size, I could get my hands on. Crocheted in the meantime a big blanket and could not be happier. No more hurting hands or fingers. The hook lays easiy in your hand and I can not find a negative aspect on this tool. Love it and will use it forever.

        This is a very comfortable to use crochet hook. Took a little bit of time to adjust to the feel of it but very nice hook to use. I continue adding to my collection of sizes.

            Comments about Skacel Addi Swing Hook:

            this is not a good hook for those who hold the hook like a pencil. Better for the fist-grip crocheters. I plan to buy all the sizes, this is such a comfortable hook.

              Comments about Skacel Addi Swing Hook:

              it is meant to be ergonomic, but the weighted end is too heavy and it actually hurt to use because I had to compensate by twisting my wrist too much.
              It felt unbalanced.

                I first bought just one Addi hook and now I have every size it comes in. It just snuggles right into my hand and is very, very comfortable and feels natural in my hand.

                        The hook itself is as smmoth as the knitting needles. Yarn doesn't catch but the best part is the handle which is long and comfortable. It's design is great for large or arthritic hands.
