- Crochet Hook - A hook is a tool to interlock loops of yarn, thread, or other material to create fabric or other structures. There are a variety of hooks available on the market, but as a beginner crocheter, you will only need a few basic types to get started. The tapered crochet hook is the most common type, available in various sizes. At The Hook and Needle Nook, LLC in the Liberty Lake area, you will find a wide variety of hooks to fit your needs as a beginner crocheter. We sell steel and aluminum hooks ranging from tiny (0.60 mm) to large (19.0 mm).
- Yarn - There are many different types and colors of yarn to choose from. For example, you can find yarn made from wool, cotton, acrylic, etc. When starting, it's a good idea to use light-colored worsted-weight yarn. This type of yarn is easy to see and work with. Acrylic yarn is a good choice for beginners because it's affordable and easy to care for. In addition, you can machine wash and dry acrylic yarn without damaging it. The Hook and Needle Nook, LLC in the Liberty Lake area is the best place to buy your yarn. We have a wide selection of yarns and other crochet supplies. If you're unsure what type of yarn to use, ask one of the employees at our shop who can help. They are always happy to assist customers.
- Darning Needle - A darning needle is a long, thin needle with a blunt end. It is used for weaving ends and sewing pieces of crocheting together. When you finish crocheting a project, you will need a darning needle and need to weave in the loose ends of yarn. You will also use it if you need to sew two crocheting pieces together, such as the front and back of a sweater. Darning needles come in different sizes, so choose one appropriate for the yarn you use. If you are unsure what size to get, The Hook and Needle Nook, LLC in the Liberty Lake area has a great selection of darning needles and can help you choose the right one. We recommend getting a set of darning needles in different sizes if you are starting. That way, you will always have the right size needle for any project.
- Stitch Marker - A stitch marker is a small ring or clip that marks a specific stitch or the beginning of a round. It is especially helpful when working on complex patterns with multiple steps. It is made of smooth plastic or metal and has a loop on one end that can be easily slipped over the crochet hook. The other end is usually brightly colored so that it can be easily found in the fabric.
