There are dozens, if not hundreds of different kinds of crochet hooks and knitting needles out there - and finding one's own perfect tools is a journey for each maker! Personally, I love trying out new hooks and needles - the more unique the better. So I jumped at the chance to try out Kollage Square Hooks and Needles - and give away one of each here on Moogly!

Kollage Square Hooks are ergonomic because the "square handle decreases contact stress by giving your fingers a flat surface to rest on while crocheting."
I gave one of these hooks a try, and it was indeed unique! Because I tend to twirl my hook when I crochet, it took some getting used to. For those who hold their hooks in one position, I think it will be a faster adjustment. If you like a flat thumb rest on your hook, I think you'll love these!
Even having to adjust my usual crocheting technique, I really enjoyed using the Kollage Square Hook and I found that it did keep my hand more relaxed and tension free, just as promised. These hooks come in both pointed and rounded tips too, so you can really pick the hook that's right for you!
Kollage Square Circular Knitting Needles are ergonomic for the exact same reasons - a flat surface provides more surface contact! And while I hadn't seen the hooks before, I had been wanting to give these a try for a while!
I love these needles! The square shape doesn't just feel good, I think it improved my stitch consistency too (I tend to knit tightly, but not with these). And they were ready to use right out of the package - no need to soak or soften the cable!
The cable join on the firm needles (which I tried) is fantastic too - it swivels completely, so there's no annoying twisting and tangling and straightening out to do. The tips are sharp, making it super easy to get into even complicated stitches, and I like that they are aluminum with the sized etched on - no digging out the gauge to find the right pair.
Both the Kollage Square Hooks and the Kollage Square Circular Knitting Needles are made in America, with a lifetime warranty. You can purchase them at a local retailer or find an online retailer by clicking here!
And now, let’s get to that giveaway! I'll be mailing this one out myself - and I'll be sending a US-J/6.0mm Rounded Tip hook and a set of US-8/5.0mm Kollage Square Circular Knitting Needles (Firm) to one lucky winner - so no matter which is your favorite craft, you'll have at least one new tool to try for yourself!
