Whether you like aluminum, bamboo, or just plain old plastic crochet hooks, you still have to pick a style of hook. The two main ones are the in-line Susan Bates type hooks and the Boye type hooks with the nipped in neck. Most people have a strong preference and detest the other type. My preference is the Susan Bates type which also has a slightly more pointed end and a rounder curve to the end of the hook. I feel they slip through the yarn a bit easier and they are always the ones I recommend to beginners. I can use the Boye type hooks with no problem but when I have a choice I will choose the Susan Bates ones. Which type hook is your favorite?
