A special thanks to Leither Co. for providing me with a free crochet hook in exchange for my honest review. The thoughts expressed in this article are my own.
Ashley Leither is a fellow crochet pattern designer who has some of the most amazing and adorable crochet patterns! But there’s more to her brand than just patterns! Introducing the Leither Co. handmade crochet hooks!
About Leither Co.
Ashley is a stay-at-home mom to 3 beautiful girls and has been designing crochet patterns since 2012! In 2018, Ashley and her husband expanded their business to handmade crochet hooks, and now also hand dyed yarn and crochet kits! Their 3 girls help with the business as well, making it a family affair!
Ashley shared with me her experience with debilitating crochet pain, which I myself have experienced as well. She started doing some research on ergonomic crochet hooks and how they can help with that and her husband then created an ergonomic hook for her to try. It worked and the rest is history!
They now run this business together, making these ergonomic crochet hooks that help others crochet longer and pain free!
Ashley was so kind and even shared with me some tips for how to hold my crochet hook and how to sit to relieve some of the tension and physical pain crocheting can cause.

Ashley sent me a handmade crochet hook to try out myself. I chose the Bolivian Rosewood handle, size H (5.0mm). *Update- they now use Clover hooks to go with all of their handmade handles.
Details on the handle from her website– ” This handle is handmade with a Cocobolo. This wood has beautiful dark grain contrasts, creating a very unique look, no two handles are alike.”
Once I received the handle I was instantly impressed.
I think I expected it to be really heavy, but it isn’t. It’s super smooth and long, which I really like because I’m not a fan of short crochet hooks.
The actual hook sticks out pretty far from the handle too, which is what I like. For the longest time I have used Hobby Lobby’s Yarnology hooks for that reason.
I just like the way my stitches flow on the longer style crochet hooks. So I was very excited to use this handmade hook!
Now, let’s talk about price. The Leither Co. crochet hooks are $35. I would consider that very reasonable for a handmade crochet hook!
Handmade crochet hooks range in price from in the teens to $70 or more! I would say Leither Co. handmade hooks are a great median price and the quality is well worth it!
I’ve been using Leither Co. crochet hooks for over a month now and I’m still very impressed with them. They are very easy to crochet with and still look brand new!
And I have done a lot of crocheting in the past month! Overall, I would recommend these crochet hooks to all of my crocheting friends!
