Guide To Susan Bates Steel Crochet Hook

Steel crochet hooks, small hooks for small, delicate and intricate designs, like when you are crocheting lace. They are made of this type of metal because they need to be extra strong and durable.

After all, the smaller something gets, the easier it is to accidentally break when you use it. Susan Bates has a full range of steel hooks, and her line of these is called Steelite.

Read on for my review of Susan Bates Steelite. Susan Bates Steelite Steel Crochet Hook Set

Disadvantage

The steel is nickel plated, so this is not a good choice for those with nickel sensitivities.
Unfortunately, this is the only collection of sizes available. If you need other options, you will have to purchase them separately.
These are not online, as they cannot make smaller hooks with that head design.
