Happy NatCroMo - that's National Crochet Month! This month I'm partnering with Yarnspirations to giveaway an entire set of Susan Bates Soft Ergonomic Crochet Hooks - take a closer look and enter to win below!

The Hook Specs:
Susan Bates Silvalume Soft Ergonomic Crochet Hooks are an improvement on the aluminum Susan Bates hooks you know and love – they've added an ergonomic sleeve that covers everything below the thumb rest!
Like all Susan Bates, these are in-line hooks, suited for both knife and pencil grips. The size is printed on both the thumb rest and the soft ergonomic handle – and of course, they have the Susan Bates color coding. They are available in sizes US-E, 3.5mm to US-K, 6.5mm - all the sizes you probably use most!
I tend to switch between the Soft Ergonomic Hooks, and the Bamboo Hooks - I love them both! I find I like these better for smaller sizes, and the bamboo better for larger sizes - and both let me crochet in comfort.
These hooks feel warm in the hand, and while the ergonomic sleeve isn't exactly "squishy", it does provide a good feeling of padding and makes the hook more comfortable to use.

What a beautiful set, it looks so comfortable
My favorite hook size is either J or H, depending on project. Until finding Moogly during the height of the Pandemic, I preferred size G, probably because that was all that I had when I learned to crochet at age 10. Fifty years later, I am more amenable to change. Thank you for such a fun Blog Site and all of your helpful tips and videos, as well as the CALs.
I have heard great things about these hooks. Will they help with carpal tunnel? Mostly with the gripping.
I'm a Susan Bates girl from way back when... but several years ago switched to something more comfortable. These older hands need help sometime... I'd love to try the SB model..!
I'm not sure I have a "favorite" but the hooks I use the most are the J hook and the size 7.
My favorite hooks! Thanks for the chance to win some!!
thanks for the chance to win! I love a classic H hook for my worsted projects!
Dawn A Tenneson
Favorite hook sizes is H! I must use it a lot because I have a lot of duplicates of hooks but it seems only one of size H! LOL
I use H and I hook the most
Love these hooks. I want all of them! 🙂
I love my 5.00 mm hooks.
I love my H hook! I use it more than any other, it works for baby blankets, hats, just about anything.
my favorite crochet hooks are I & J... Susan Bates.. my interest in crochet started over 40 yrs ago when as a young child I found a bent and twisted Susan Bates Size C hook on the ground. At some point I straightened it out, and after many moves, I still have that hook.
I love these hooks, my favorite size is the one I’m working with, today it is both 5.5mm and 6,0mm, I’m working on a planned pooling project and just one hook won’t do it
Favourite crochet hook sizes are 5mm and 3.5mm (for amigurumi)
My favorite size hook is an I.
I generally use Size H / 8 / 5.00 mm. Thank you
My favorite hook size is H. Thanks Tamara!
I love the G hook.
My go-to size for crocheting is a sizes (because I can't pick just one) is H, I, or J.
H is my favorite . 😍
I tend to use G or H the most!
My favorite hook size is J. It's perfect for pulling the yarn through the loop, considering my typical tension.
I love using my D hook, but lately my G with a DK is doing it for me!
Great hook set. i look forward to trying them out.
My favorite size is 4mm or 4.5mm. Smaller hooks seem to be easier for me to reduce arthritis pain.
These are my all time favorite hooks to use! The are very comfortable to use and the length of the hooks is perfect for someone with large hands.
Love Susan Bate hooks. My favorite hook at the moment is a J. For some reason, last year my favorite hook was an H. I think it may be because my hands get more tired and a bigger hook and thicker yarn makes things more enjoyable.
Amazing set! Thanks so much!
My favourite crochet hook size is 5 mm. I use it all the time!
Just when I’ve nearly worn out my favourite 6mm hook!
Would love a set of these. I love their Bamboo Handle ones. I have been using mostly G & 7 Hooks.
While I have a number of different types of crochet hooks, I don’t have any Susan Bates. This set would be great to win….. thanks for the chance.
These look nice! 🤞
My favorite size would be H or I. Really depends on what I'm making and what yarn I'm using. Thanks for the opportunity!
I prefer a US H or above. But no matter what size, the hook has to have an ergonomic handle.
I'm going to go with hook size G. Thanks for the giveaway!
Susan Bates has certainly evolved from when I was younger 🙂
these look amazing!
BTW, is this contest once only, or once a day?
Cindy Jo Moore
I love Susan Bates Hooks and have used them since I was young .
Susan Bates are my favorite hooks. I'm sure the ergonomic are better than the originals!
Thank you for your ongoing generosity!! I love these hooks!!
My favorite hook size is H
These are my absolute favorite hooks for blanket projects.
I like 5 mm the best. I’d love to try these hooks!
I like H hook the most
My go to size is5mm or 5.75
what a beautiful set! thank you for the chance to win one! my favorite size.......either 4 1/2 or 6/12
My favorite hook is which ever one I'm working with at the moment. I've been a Susan Bates girl since I started a few decades ago with hooks from my aunt and grandmother. I have a few of the ergonomic ones which are great to work with and they don't seem to "wander off". I would love to have a full set as I usually have multiple wips.
These hooks make it easier when we have grip issues as we age.
My favorite hook is a G size. I enjoy creating and designing; it's challenging and fun!
F or G or H are the hooks that get used most. Love these hooks and so do my hands
Why have I not heard of these before?! I love inline hooks and Susan Bates is my favorite.
My favorite hook sizes are G & H.
H and I are my most frequented hooks!
Kitten With A Whiplash
In the past I always used G or H. Now I'm trying finer yarns and smaller hooks. Not loving it, but determined to really give it a fair shot. I don't see myself ever going smaller than D, but then again, I never thought I'd go smaller than G, so?
Carolyn S Hohenfeldt
I absolutely love Susan Bates hooks! If had had ten sets it wouldn't be enough!
My most used hook is a 5mm
Love, love, love!
I like F hooks the most.
These hooks look wonderful for arthritic hands
My favorite size is I.
Bates are the only hooks I use. Would love to try these!
H is probably my favorite but G gets used more
I haven't tried these yet but just crocheted two mermaid tails using a size P hook. They went fast but the cushioning would have been nice! Usually I use an H or G for afghans.
I discovered ergonomic crochet hooks while doing my first few amigurumi projects. What a difference! Now I want that cushion for just about every project, especially for the smaller hooks. I'd love to win a set but will be looking for these next shopping trip.
I’d love to try these out after having hand surgery! They look awesome.
My favorite hook size is either 5.0mm or 6.00mm would love to win these 😍 I have fibromyalgia and arthritis
My favorite hook size is H. It's right in the middle of all the sizes and I feel like so many of my patterns use size H.
My favorite hook size is 5.0 but 6.5 is really growing on me due to the type of projects I've been working on.
Oh! I’ve never tried these kind of hooks! I’ll need to because you can never have too many hooks!
I have crocheted for over 60 years and have used Susan Bates for many of those years! I usually use H, I, or J but have used all sizes. These hooks look lovely! I hope I win! TYIA
I like a size F crochet hook.
What a wonderful giveaway! I can’t think of a better way to celebrate national crochet month then with a new set or even a complete set of hooks!
My first love is an H. But lately I've been loving a J. Thank you for the opportunity to win these!!
I use a "H" hook as my go to. But I use a variety of sizes😊
G is my favorite
My favorite crochet hook H.
I love the comfort of the Susan Bates ergonomic hooks - the one I use the most is the beautiful golden J / 6mm hook
I Like the larger hooks the best, H, I, J...but I use a wide variety!
H is my favorite.
My favorite hook size is a 4mm
My favorite hook size is I or J depending on the project.
I would love a chance to win these lovely crochet hooks!
Thank you for the opportunity. 🙂
My favorite hook size is 4.5mm!
I usually prefer working with I or J hooks, but use other sizes as required depending on the project. I would love to have a set of these lovely Susan Bates ergonomic crochet hooks. Thank you for the opportunity! 🙂
What a nice set! I've heard a lot of good things about Bates hooks, but have never been able to get some where I live. My go-to hook sizes are a 5.5 and 3.5 for wearables and amigurumi 🙂
There are so many different reasons for why to choose a certain size hook but I think my go to is an I hook. It can be used for so many different projects and is comfortable to hold in any style hook I use. Thanks so much Moogly!
My favorite hook is F, followed by E and G...The larger hooks always feel bulky to me and it takes a little bit to get my tension good using them...
My most used size of hooks are I-9/5.5mm & J-10/6.00mm. I can't say these are actually my favorites but they are the most used.
At the moment, I am using a 6mm hook making hats. I usually am crouching doilies and use a 1.65mm hook for those.
My favorite hook size is J. I love ergonomic hooks -- crochet smarter and longer!
My favorite is hook size to use is the H or 5.0 . I have crocheted a wedding dress in a 2.o hook and it was pretty difficult but a very rewarding project in the end.
Susan Bates are my favorite hooks of all. The pointy tips and in-line styled hook seem to help me move under and through my stitches faster and easier. I'd love to try out the ergonomic handles, to see how they feel.
I can't say that I have a favorite size, because I work with all kinds of yarn. That said, I think I probably use the blue size H8/5.00mm the most, because I'm always misplacing it!
I love my G,H & I hooks the best.
My favorite crochet hook sizes are 2.5mm, 2.00mm and 1.5mm i use these for making amigurumis and earrings. 3.75mm for shawls and tops.
I use 3.25 and 3.75 a lot for amurigumi. Otherwise I use H. Susan Bates with Bamboo handles have been my favorites for years!
I use 3.25 and 3.75 for amigurami. I use h for most other projects. I love Susan Bates with Bamboo handles.
I’ll love to try this hooks.
I using size H more often.
Susan Bates bamboo hooks are my fave! Never tried these ergonomic hooks! My go to sizes are H and I. But I usually crochet with worsted weight yarn!
Lately I've been using G - 4.0 for every project!
I have one of these & love it. So comfy!
I love J & H size hooks!!
I tend to gravitate toward the 4.5 mm hooks! I haven’t tried anything smaller yet!
Is it bad to get excited over the chance to win crochet hooks?
and here's the rest of my comment, lol. my favorite size is H, it feels good, not to thin not to thick, just right.
Thank you for the giveaway. I would love to give those crochet hooks a try.
I am usually making an afghan as a gift, so it is either a G or an H hook. I have used Susan Bates hooks for years
and I did have a full set at one time. Little by little over the years, I have lost a few and had to replace some.
Thanks so much for this giveaway.
I usually make afghans as presents, so its a G or H hook for me. I have used Susan Bates hooks for years and
had a full set at one time. Over the years I have misplaced a few and to replace them. Thanks so much for
I like using an H or an I.
I can't decide on a favorite hook size, it is either G or J.
H is my favorite and is also my last initial!
I use an H hook the most, but since I'm now using more DK weight yarns, more frequently I have a smaller hook in hand.
I keep hearing about these hooks being awesome, I am delighted to have the chance to win them. My favorite size is G or H. Good Luck everyone !!
I seem to gravitate to the H & I hooks for most projects. They seem the most comfortable to me.
My favorite hook sizes are F and G.
Ooh.. these look like they would be very nice to use. I tend to use G and H the most. But all my hooks are my favorite!
My favorite is the 5 mm, the perfect size!
Love Susan Bates! I don't know if I have a favorite but I do love using 5.5 and 6 mm more than other sizes.
I love the Susan Bates Hooks because they are the only ones where the neck is the same width as the hook itself, and this is what keeps your stitches nice and even. I taught my niece to crochet left handed even though I am right handed, and told her to only buy the Susan Bates hooks. I get a lot of compliments on my crocheting. Before I learned about the type hook you should use, I was wondering why my crocheting efforts were not as good as a friend of mine. Then I switched to Susan Bates hooks and boy, did I see a big difference!
Oops, I forgot to say which size hook is my favorite. I have 3 that I use more than others... f, g, and h.
Thank you for chance to win your Give-a-way!! 😀 I use my size I hook the most...
Lovely set of hooks! My favorite hook size is H.
I don't really have a favorite size but the size I've used most often lately is H.
My favorite size hook is H. I feel like it's not too big or little. I learned to crochet on an H so that might have something to do with it too. Thanks for the chance to win this beautiful set of hooks.
Oh I would enjoy those beautiful hooks!
Susan Bates is my go to hook. Would love to try this new ergonomic set! Thanks for the entry!
I think I use my H and I hooks the most.
My favorite hooks are H and 7.
Susan Bates products are amazing.
I use G hooks most often
I'm just learning how to crochet, so I don't have a favorite size yet!
I seem to gravitate to the I (5.5mm) hook most because it gives me the results I want. But I will use any size necessary to achieve the best quality project.
I will teach my students how to crochet.
I have used Susan Bates hooks for many years. I tend to go to the mid-range sizes more than anything. They're comfortable in my hands.
I started with Susan Bates hooks and continue to use them to this day!
Love Susan Bates hooks!
Amazing looking set! My favorite size has to be H.
My favorite hook size is 4mm
I absolutely love Susan Bates hooks. I didn't even know about these, so excited for the possibilty to win some 😊
My favorite size is a d, but I also love the much smaller hooks. I like to make things small 😉
I wish everyone the very best of luck 💛💛💛
It used to be H, but I'm using Is a lot more note.
My favorite Size hook is an I/5.5MM. I used to have 3; I am down to one and it scares me ( I might lose it) in the middle of a project.....
Ugh, been there! ♥
I would love to win this fantastic set of Susan Bates ergonomic hooks. I do have trouble with neuropathy in my hands, so I get crochet fatigue quite a lot when trying to work on my crochet projects. I bet these hooks would help a lot! Thanks for the chance to enter the raffle. 🙂
My favorite hook size is 5.5 mm. These hooks look beautiful
H and I are my go to hooks
Love these hooks. I'm always adding new ones to my growing collection. You can never have too many!!
Taught myself how to crochet at age 13 with a steel set. Fast forward to now where my brittle bones took a toll and I am wheelchair confined at age 60 and I took out the steel hooks and ummm no I cannot work with them now.
I have broken hands so many times and need something easier to grasp and softer on m hands.
This would be an awesome win!
Not sure I'd call it my favorite size, but I seem to mostly use size K these days.
I love Susan Bates Hooks!!! I'm glad to see that they have come out with an ergonomic set. I have a set of the bamboo handles & I love them. I switch around the types of hooks I use, mostly because I have my hooks in project bags with various WIP's . LOL.
I love an H hook the best! But I also enjoy trying out new projects that call for different size yarn and hooks 🙂
The hook I use most rn is 5.5.
Tho, my friend gifted me a beautiful wooden 8.0 hook that I really should use more often
Love Susan Bates hooks! I tend to use the H hook most often.
