Quick Crochet with a Q Hook: 10 Free Patterns

Crochet hooks range from the tiny little steel hooks used with thread, all the way up to the monster Z hook – a whopping 35mm hook only available by special order from custom hook makers. You won’t find many patterns calling for a Z hook, but you will find quite a few that use the Q hook. The Q hook is 15mm (sometimes 16mm) around, and is a great size for those who have trouble holding onto smaller hooks. They also make nice thick fabric at super speed. Satisfying and fun to use, it’s the star of the show today, with these ten free patterns that are quick to crochet with a Q hook!

    I don’t have a Q/15.00/16.00 hook… the largest I’ve used it 10.00 n 12.00… love using them n have made bags… see they are actually called ‘bird nest’ bags… when I can find a Q hook I’d love to have a go… thanks for all your great search for patterns too… <3
