Q: I’m wondering if the US 0 (2.5 mm) is bigger then the US B (2.25 mm)? To me it would seem to be the opposite.
A: Hi Ann, The US-0 is larger than the US-B the way ChiaoGoo manufactures them. Thank you for asking. Tracy, Handsome Fibers.
Q: Dimensions of the ChiaoGoo ergonomic flat handle.
A: Hi Maureen, The length of the bamboo handle portion is approximately 3 3/4 inches long and the width of the bamboo portion is approximately 1/2 inch. The overall length including the metal portion is approximately 5 inches. Thank you for asking. Tracy, Handsome Fibers.
Q: What is the handle length? I'm interested in 0.8 or 1.0mm versions.
A: Hi Cindy, The length of the handle is approximately 3-7/8 inches in length. Thank you for asking. Tracy, Handsome Fibers.
Q: Hello. I was curious if someone could tell me if the metal on these hooks is for sure steel? Does it say stainless steel on the packaging? Thank you.
A: Hi Dana,
Sizes 16 - C are nickel-plated steel. Sizes D - J are aluminum.
Thank you for asking.
Q: Are the Chiaogoo metal head hooks in-line or tapered style? Thank you!
A: Hi Gloria,
They are inline. I will add a new picture to our product listing that will show the hooks better.
Thank you for asking.
Q: Hi, What is the total length of the hooks in inches? I am interested in size H and I hooks. Thank you.
A: Hi, They are approximately 5 3/8 inches long. Thank you for asking.
Q: Hi! Do these not come in sizes Q and N (16mm and 9mm)? I like metal crochet hooks but am not sure if they make the metal ones this large. If not, is there a wooden crochet hook you recommend that is as close to a metal one as possible?
A: No, these hooks are only made as large as a US J. Our most popular hooks in sizes US N and Q are the ChiaoGoo Bamboo Crochet Hooks.
Q: Would this be the same size as the very old designs of steel crochet hooks size 8 that would be used for making lace, etc - very fine crocheting using sz 10 crochet cotton?
A: The ChiaoGoo size US 8 is a small hook and is likely the same size as the old size 8 steel hooks. You could compare the millimeter size to be sure. It is definitely a suitable hook size for size 10 crochet cotton. - Katie, Handsome Fibers
