The Hook Specs:
Officially they are called "Susan Bates Silvalume 10" Afghan Crochet Hooks" - but these days, they'd most commonly be called Tunisian hooks. Tunisian crochet used to be called "afghan crochet" but you can make a lot more than afghans with this technique!

Susan Bates Tunisian Crochet Hooks come in three sizes: US-H, 5.0mm; US-I, 5.5mm; and US-J, 6.0mm. These hooks are made of lightweight aluminum, polished for a velvety smooth finish. And the stopper on the end is clearly labeled with the hook size!
These hooks have an extended shaft, approximately 8" long, so you can make a good-sized row of Tunisian stitches. You might not be able to fit an entire blanket's worth, but depending on the yarn size you can fit a fair number of loops in there!
I actually have a funny story about these hooks! When I decided to teach myself to crochet, I went to my local big box store and picked up a "how to crochet" pamphlet, a skein of bouclé yarn, and a US-J, 6.0mm Susan Bates Tunisian Crochet Hook... Whoops! As you can imagine, I didn't have much success that round.
But I held onto that hook, and now I've used it in my newest crochet pattern! (Scroll to the bottom of that pattern to see more of my Tunisian designs!) It's the first one I reach for, and it's still perfectly smooth after 23 years... although the Susan Bates logo has changed!
And I've got another design in the works with it too! And there are free Tunisian crochet patterns on Yarnspirations of course! Watch for a video tutorial for the Lily Sugar'n Cream Tunisian Simple Stitch Dishcloth here on Moogly later this month!
