Crocheting is so much fun! I love the idea of creating intricate designs with just a hook and yarn! Imagine the possibilities. But before you start stitching, you need to take a look at these 11 essential crochet tools that can greatly enhance your repertoire.
11 Essential Crochet Tools For Beginners
Before getting started on crocheting projects, we’ll be showing you the essential crochet tools you’ll need for your craft! You might already have some of these in your toolkit, yet this checklist will help you complete your collection
Buying yarn is undoubtedly an enjoyable activity that can brighten your mood and get you excited for projects. Yarns are made from different materials, so you may want to do some research on which one works best for your particular project.
Hooks come in different sizes and are made from different materials. Research which hook will work best for you.
Scissors are an important crochet tool that you should never go without! Just like yarn and crochet hooks, sewing scissors have different types and functions as well.
Unlike the usual sewing needle, a darning needle used for crocheting has a big eye for thread or yarn insertion. Compared to a sewing needle, you can insert your thread a lot easier. It is used in crocheting the ends of your work together.
5. Tape Measure
Crocheting is incredibly versatile! Aren’t these tape measure covers beautiful? We always see tape measures used for sewing, but it’s an essential crochet tool to make your crochet project precise, especially if you’re following a pattern.
With your fabric, thread, and a needle, you could make this handy hook organizer! We suggest that you have a hook organizer similar to this to keep all your crochet hooks in order. Check out this hook organizer sewing tutorial here.

Row counters are available in different forms, and this one is called a digital row counter. It helps you keep track of your crocheting work, saving tons of time!
Crochet Patterns serve as a guide to follow when precision is required. There are thousands of crochet patterns available on the internet, from easy ones to incredibly difficult. See a few simple crochet patterns here.
