Understanding the different types of crochet

There are many different types and sizes of crochet hooks, each of which can be used for different types of threads and different crochet projects.

Plastic Crochet Hook

Crochet hooks made of plastic are usually cheaper than aluminum crochet hooks because they are considered plastic, but they are not as smooth as aluminum crochet hooks. However, if you need a softer crochet hook, then plastic crochet hooks are a good choice, and they are not very heavy and easy to carry around.
