I believe these are also called "afghan" crochet hooks. They are like a regular crochet hook but much longer.

Here's a link to a list of places that sell the tuscan crochet hook.

I just used a regular hook. It will depend on what you need it for.

That's wonderful. So colorful. I have one that my G-mother started for me before she passed away. She had crocheted an afghan for everyone else in the family but me. I got mine a few years later. Her sister, my great aunt, finished it and gave it to me. I treasure it. Had to put it away because the kids liked using it a little toooooo much.

Jessica-Jean,

That is one GORGEOUS afghan!!! I'm really glad you finished it. I'd love to learn how to crochet, aside from the basic chain stitch required to bind off of a knitting board loom.

You did a fantastic job! :)


Hi there... I saw that you would love to learn to crochet. This is a wonderful site. It has videos for traditional crochet and also for tunisian crochet.

View the video for whatever stitch you want to learn.

I made a narrow step afghan about 25 yrs. ago and now I am making another. I am also simultaneously working on a double crochet one called Scrappy Step Afghan.

I just took a couple of pictures of the Scrappy Step Afghan (double crochet) and another of the Narrow Step Afghan which I recently restarted! Thanks to Jessica-Jean, she gave me pointers on an even edge so I pulled out nearly 50 rows which i had crocheted and I restarted. I will post the pictures in a couple of minutes.

Here are the more recent pictures..... of the Scrappy Step Afghan and the most recent Narrow Step Afghan..... I'm not sure I will be finished by Christmas, since I am making some Christmas gifts also!

The pictures aren't very clear because I am in a wheelchair and can't take the picture from "above" so they are taken at an angle.

Do you mean a Tunisian Crochet Hook. This crochet hook is long (length of knitting needles) and are designed this way to hold a large number of stitches since in tunisian you leave loops from each stitch on your needle, and then complete the stitch on your "way back" for the whole row. Here is a link with directions:

It is a fun method and you can create some beautiful designs. This is an interesting site.
