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!
(Need to learn how to Tunisian crochet? CLICK HERE to get started!)
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!

I have this on my bucket list of skills to learn!
I would love to try out Tunisian crochet!
I have never tired Tunisian Crochet but would love to.
This is a good excuse for trying Tunisian again! My mom started learning it recently, so she has the hooks we were sharing. New hooks would be welcome!
i tried it years ago and really need to get into it more. i liked it but have never gone back to it.
Beautiful long metal hooks, when are they going to start adding ladder handles to Tunisian hooks?
I tried googling, but can't figure out what ladder handles for hooks would be? I'm so curious!
Love Moogly! Can’t wait to add Tunisian crochet to my repertoire!
I have tried Tunisian Crochet before. It didn't go as planned. But as with every crochet fail, if I just take a break from the issue and try again later, I always have sucess. I really want to try Tunisian again. I'm recovering from a wrap I made my mom for Mother's Day. I gave myself a week off and now it's time to get back to it! What to work on next?
I've never heard of Tunisian crochet till recently... But I'm excited to learn more about it!
I’ve tried Tunisian crochet on a couple small projects but it’s something I really want to learn more. I love the look of it. Hopefully I’ll win the hooks.
I learned Tunisian in a year long CAL in 2020. Love it!
I made a couple of baby sweaters years ago. I loved it.
I'm just learning Tunisian crochet and would love these hooks to refine my skills!

Yes I have done Tunisian crochet. I love it. I have learn so much from the many designers and youtube posts.
I have so desperately wanted to try Tunisian crochet! Sadly the purchase of new hooks is low on the list of things I am saving up for. Teeth and medical things come first..
But good luck to all and congrats to winner!!!
I love Tunisian crochet! Once a coworker who knits and crochet had never heard if Tunisian crochet and couldn't figure out if my vest was knit or crocheted!
I've always wanted to try Tunisian! Good luck everyone!
I have done Tunisian crochet off and on for about 8 years. I love it! Especially for dishcloths!
Tried it once, but since I didn't have the pattern in front of me so it didn't work very well!
I have not tried Tunisian croyor afghan crochet. My gendmother was going to teach me "afghan crochet "but we ran out of time. I really did enjoy learning how to crochet from her. I am excited to learn now that I have found you. Have a fabulous day lady.
Sorry I couldn't see the font very well while typing.
I have done several Tunisian projects. One of my WIPP is Tunisian Knit Dust Mop Covers.
When I first started to crochet, I fell in love with a pattern and bought a Tunisian crochet hook. I have dabbled with dish cloths but haven't made anything substantial yet. A couple of weeks ago, I purchased a pattern for a blanket and am determined to make it for my Mom's Birthday in September.
Thank you! Would love to try Tunisian crochet.
I've never tried Tunisian crochet, but I'm interested in learning!
I would love to try Tunisian crochet soon!
I've done Tunisian on smaller things like dishcloths but would like to try something larger.
I want to win these! I’ve tried Tunisian crochet with regular hooks but not these ones.
I’ve used the Tunisian crochet a couple of times. I only have one needle. Can’t find them in my area I actually saw the honeycomb Tunisian stitch and plan on making some wash cloths with it. So beautiful

I use only Susan Bates hooks and didn't know that they had Tunisian Hooks . Love to try them . Thank you .
I'm in love with Tunisian crochet! I have made a couple sweaters and a wrap.
Love trying something new!!
I haven’t done Tunisian yet but it’s next on my to do list! Looking forward to it!
i firat tried it about 20 years ago, not really knowing what it was but i had seen a pattern that i couldn't resist! it came out beautifully and i was "hooked"!
Such a beautiful technique. I have been wanting to learn this, so as to expand my repertoire. Thanks for the opportunity
I have tried tunisian a couple of times, with some success, but I have never seen these hooks before!
I will have to check out the Yarnspirations website, too
I have not tried it yet. But, I look forward to doing so
I've tried Tunisian, but haven't gotten the technique down yet
I would love to try tunisian crochet bc it looks beautiful..
I have tried Tunisian before but was not very successful but have been wanting to try again. I do not have any of these longer hooks which I think could help the process very much. I need to be on the search for some patterns.
Tunisian is so cool! I've tried it but never completed a project yet. The hook set would really come in handy! Thanks for the (re) introduction to a really fun technique!
Good Morning! Thank you for the opportunity to enter, I love Tunisian crochet, I’ve done just a few items and am currently in a calendar square CAL and loving learning new stitches. I will definitely be checking out your patterns. I want to do more Tunisian then I do. Thank you
I have made several washcloths , a baby blanket and a infinity scarf with Tunisian crochet. I have learned that softer yarn and heavier weight yarn is the easiest and lots of practice is needed to improve your technique especially to get the sides off the time to have similar tension.
I used this a long time ago when it wasn't called Tunisian crochet, but like you stated in your article "afghan crochet," Not too crazy about it, but wouldn't mind givinf=g it another whirl! Thanks for the giveaway!
I haven't tried Tunisian hooks yet.
I haven't tried Tunisian crochet, but I'd like to.
I would love to try Tunisian!!!
I'd love tolerant with these hooks
I made my first Tunisian project decades ago. Now trying to relearn the tension!
I did try Tunisian and made a baby blanket. Got myself hooked. The big box stores around me don't carry the hooks, been looking for a while. Where we go shopping, I always look for the hooks with no luck. Would love to learn more stitches with new hooks. Thanks for the opportunity to win.
I would love to win this. Thanks for the chance to win.
I have made one simple stitch pouch for the back of a wheelchair and even lined it. It came out perfect. Need to learn more Tunisian stitches.
I would love to learn Tunisian crochet!
I've been wanting to learn - if I won these that would probably get me to try!!
I didn't know how to do Tunisian crochet but I really liked the look so I just taught myself using regular crochet hooks. Then I found a Tunisian crochet pattern for 4-color striped placemats and again used a regular crochet hook to make them (each stripe was only 2" wide). My regular crochet projects take up much of my time but it would be great to have actual Tunisian hooks so I could delve more deeply into Tunisian crochet, too.
I have only played with it (Tunisian) would love to learn more about it.
I don't yet do Tunisian crochet but it definitely IS having a moment! I should learn more...
I have watched videos on Youtube, but I have never tried it myself. Winning these hooks is the
perfect opportunity to pick a tunisian crochet pattern and get moving. Thanks so much for this
I have tried it once before and really enjoyed working this stitch.
I haven't tried Tunisian crochet, but I love the look of the finished products.
I am currently learning Tunisian crochet! Good luck everyone!
I would love to try out Tunisian crochet!
I love the Tunisian Crochet hook! Makes great afghans. Would love to try other items.
I haven’t tried yet would like to
I’ve been meaning to try this! Thanks for the giveaway.
Thanks for the giveaway. I've tried Tunisian crochet and I enjoy making various things. I never realized there were so many different Tunisian stitches. I will have to try them all!
I have tried tunisian and like it . Have some projects in mind but am finishing to wips first.
I tried Tunisian crochet years ago when it first came out and the hooks were called afghan hooks...I had the curling that is talked about now that is normal but straightens out when you get a little farther along...Not having the support that is available today and 3 young children I put it down and figured I was doing something wrong...
♥ It's greate how much more accessible the info is now!
I’m excited to learn Tunisian crochet!
I have the Denise set of Tunisian hooks, but I find them impossible to use because the hook part is so short. I think I'd have more success with these longer hooks!
I’m interested in trying Tunisian crochet!
I only tried the Tunisian simple stitch and only have one Tunisian hook but would love to get more and try more!
did it years ago when it was called afghan stitch. made a baby blanket.
I enjoy tunisian but don't use it often enough. I've made graphghans, blankets with panels and afghans. I need to make more but need more time.
I've tried Tunisian crochet with much frustration. However, today I watched your video with great tips and I am excited to try again. I've never had a Tunisian crochet hook! Thanks for the chance to win.
I tried to Tunisian crochet with a regular hook. Not much success!!! 🙂
Thanks for the great giveaway Tamara.
Hi, Tamara! I am just beginning to vventure into Tunisian crochet. I see lots of wash cloths in my future.
Definitely want to give it a try!!
Haven't tried it before, but definitely on my list to learn!
