The crystalites are great!
Love them! I've given up on finding these locally--bought two sets of these for me and my mom from Amazon--perfect!

Nicely made and I appreciated the price since it was my first go at crochet. I will be considering trying other materials to see what best suits me though.
Great hooks at a fraction of the price of Clover hooks
I have used Clover crochet hooks for as long as I can remember. They have always been my go to hook. I was looking for a 12mm hook and I wasn't able to find a clover hook that wasn't SOOO over priced so I thought I would give this a try. I am so glad I did. These hooks are so nice to crochet with. I am currently working on a blanket using Bernat Blanket yarn and I wanted to have a bigger stitch than the pattern called for. The 11.5mm hook has been a dream to work with. It is smooth and glides wonderfully across the yarn. These hooks are every bit as good as my Clover hooks at a fraction of the price. I am in love!!
great pack of hook for the $
These are a nice set of crochet hooks for bigger projects. Can't beat the value pack. Having them be different colors helps me to differentiate between them because I can't read the letters without my glasses.
I love these hooks. Lightweight and easy to use. Perfect for all of my projects. Highly recommended.
I like these hooks
I'm a beginner when it comes to crochet, so maybe my opinion is limited. However, I like these hooks. I use the larger ones more often because I work with a those thicker baby yarns. These hooks are easy on my hands and I can't crochet for quite awhile without getting hand cramps. They seem as if they are fairly durable and will last a long time, if taken care of properly.
not crazy about these started using and put them back into a package to give away to someone...
I loved these hooks.....until I broke one.
I bought these hooks in October of 2015. They seemed sturdy, handled comfortably, and stitched smoothly. I began crocheting a large blanket and about 1/4th of the way through the project, the L hook suddenly snapped. Anyone who crochets knows that it's best to finish a project using the same hook you started with. Sadly, that is no longer an option. I was not unnecessarily rough with the hooks. They were not mistreated or mishandled and they were stored in a case. I realize they are acrylic but if they break that easily during normal crocheting, the quality is clearly lacking. I will have to look for a (metal) replacement.
coats and clarks
I love the crystalits, the break easily, I have broken 2 H and I, where there is a bubble in them , they break. I will continue using them cause they are light and easy on my hands and fingers.
Great, lightweight hooks
I love these hooks. They're light weight and easy to use. Yarn glides on them and I have no issues at all. I even bought the package with g-k hooks sizes after using these. I would highly recommend trying these hooks.
Great hooks. Nice and smooth...
After looking for larger aluminum crochet hooks (P especially) and not finding them I started reading reviews about the acrylic ones and thought I would give them a try. These hooks are great! The hook moves through the yarn as smoothly as an aluminum one and the length is very comfortable to use. I highly recommend them if you have any problem with your hands, like arthritis. I have used plastic hooks, but realized that I was tugging at the yarn to get it to go through and it was hurting my hand. These really solved the problem. I flew through my crocheting last night with no pain or soreness this morning.
I purchased this because I needed the bigger sized hooks and they are expensive to purchase individually. For that reason this is a good product and a good value. I'm very happy with these.

Just what I was looking for. Smooth acrylic in a variety of sizes with the unique flattened hook style that allows the hook to pass smoothly through each loop without catching on others and with less effort for the wrist than traditional hooks.

Sturdy Beginner Hooks
Great variety set and thick enough to survive dropping or leaning on, at this gauge--I have smaller needles in the same material, but only 2 have survived. These work well for having handy in your bag with your carrying-stash in case of sudden inspiration, but they aren't for finer work since they are apt to have little snags that mess up expensive funkier yarns or materials. They even catch on some of the "strings" I use for heavier pieces, and can ruin the texture if you aren't careful. I mostly keep them to stick in my pocket in case I have a moment to practice a new stitch on unimportant yarns or cords. Inexpensive set for trying out to see if you want to learn to crochet--but the smaller sizes break too easily and are frustrating to a beginner! At least, I found it so.
Came right on time, very well made, very easy to use, doesn't get caught in yarn because of jagged corners or edges. I usually avoid plastic for that reason but these were excellent. I highly recommend! If I lose these I will definitely repurchase!
I think that I prefer aluminum hooks better than these but I do not object to them. When I first started to crochet I purchased one aluminum hook for an afghan. I needed to have another hook for my weekend place and the one I bought was made in China. The original was made in USA and it was so much nicer. So, I think if I can ever find some old ones at a garage sale or resale shop, I would like them the best.
These hooks are AWESOME for thick yarns!
These acrylic crochet hooks are AWESOME to use on thick yarns; especially yarns like the Bernat Baby Blanket & the Bernat Blanket yarn. They're smooth and are much easier on the hands than some of the aluminum hooks.
Love Those Crochet Hooks
My experience was wonderful. I love these crochet hooks. They were the ones that I was looking for exactly and I really appreciate them being exactly what I ordered. Thanks again
A normal plastic crotchet hook. They come in nice colors but are nothing special exactly what I expected. A a
All the sizes I need for my super-chunk projects and I love their smooth plastic shape. Recommend to anyone working with weights 5 or 6 yarns
Not as good as the metal hooks
I bought these for their size, but I like metal crochet hooks much better. Just could not find metal ones in these sizes.
Nice, but not my favorite
I love the colors and the handles are easy to hold, but personally prefer the rounder throat you find with most aluminum crochet hooks instead of the flat/pointy throat of these hooks. I have used various sizes in this kit for making blankets and they work well, I just don't prefer them.
Best large crochet hooks I've used
Very smooth working with Lion Brand Homespun yarn. I like the finger indents on the handle that allows control of hook position. I've used Crystalites regular size crochet hooks in the past- to the point I wore one out and broke the handle. Size is easy to read embossed on the handle, and easy to distinguish by color.
Cute in colors
Cute in colors. As they're larger sizes, they are pretty sturdy. I use them frequently for scarves and they work well for that.
Love the huge hooks
Great for making blankets and helps you complete a blanket quickly. You can make some great things with these. Great buy!
These will do in a pinch
But the plastic is really "sticky" to the yarn (not tacky to touch). So yarn doesn't slide up and down easily and can interfere with the rhythm of my crocheting. I've started abandoning the plastic ones for wooden.
serve their purpose
i am beginning crochet and wanted to make winter accessories so decided to buy this set which offers hooks on the large end of the spectrum. I was originally hoping to buy these size hooks from my favorite brand- Clover, but they appear to have discontinued making these larger size hook sets (very disappointed to see this!). The material is plastic but they do the job. I am happy with the purchase and the price for this set.
what more needs to be said? her tools are easier to work with from beginner to advanced. these larger plactic hooks are easy TO USE HAVE A SLIGHY POINTY ALOWING YARN TO SLIDE.
This is a great set!
I love this set of hooks! I've only used one size so far, but it is very easy to use and works well. The kit is exactly as described and a very reasonable price.
They're nice crochet hooks! Not much else to say lol :) looking forward to using then for some nice winter projects!
Love these crochet hooks!!!
They are fun colors and have fun bubbles inside of them making any crochet job double in fun! Thank-you so much I truly enjoy these :)
great crochet hooks for the experienced crocheter, i will eventually have to replace them because i'm too rough on them.
Crystalites acrylic crochet hooks
Love these! So smooth to work with and very comfortable in your hand. If you love to crochet you won't be disappointed with this product!!
SOMETIMES IT IS HARD TO FIND THIS SIZE. I BELIEVE THE QUALITY IS OK. I WOULD RECOMEND IT TO MY FRIENDS
Crochet Hook Set
These are very large hooks... and the only ones I could find to complete a pattern I wanted to make. I honestly don't have any others of this size to compare. I've always preferred plastic hooks over metal for larger crocheting projects, only using metal for smaller items like doilies. Hooks are normally a matter of personal choice.
Awesome crochet hooks!
I love these crochet hooks. They are easy to use and they feel nice in my hands. Other crochet hooks make my hands cramp up really easily, and I'm only 18!! lol :)
