Why I Made the Switch to Streamlines

I’ve been crocheting for 9 years nearly every day since the day I learned. I started my crochet business 7 years ago and now crochet is my career. I crochet a lot!

Over the past year or two, I started to have pain in my left hand, wrist, arm, and shoulder. This is the hand I crochet with.

The pain would range from a small ache in the knuckle of my thumb to a burning sensation in my shoulder. After many visits to the chiropractor and my own doctor, I’ve been diagnosed with tendinitis in my left shoulder. This is a direct result of the long hours of repetitive movement I do when I crochet.

When the pain started to become persistent and I had to stop crocheting for longer and longer periods of time, I decided to try a new crochet hook. I needed something that I wouldn’t have to grip as tightly as I worked my stitches.

I had one furls streamline crochet hook already that I had not really used much so I decided to give it another try. The relief was almost instant!

What I Love About Furls Streamline Crochet Hooks

My first Furls Streamline hook was the Ebony wood in a 5.00mm (H) size. The longer length was one of the first things that stood out to me. That helps a lot when crocheting because there’s no edges poking you on the other side of you hand.

I also really love how lightweight the hook is. Because it is so lightweight I don’t have to grip it very hard and it just sort of glides through the yarn. With other hooks I had such a tight grip that the knuckle of my thumb would just constantly ache. These hooks being so lightweight gives much relief to my fingers and wrist.

The Furls Streamline Swirls weigh slightly more than the wooden ones. I only have one of these hooks, and haven’t used it much, but I have compared the weight. It is definitely heavier, but still not as heavy as some of the other crochet hooks I have used in the past. I would still consider it a very lightweight hook.

Did My Pain Go Away?

I am so happy to say that after using the Furls Streamline crochet hooks for over 2 months now, I haven’t had any finger, wrist, or arm pain!

My shoulder still bothers me from time to time, but tendinitis is something that can take months to heal and can easily return. But I am able to crochet again, after having to take a few weeks off to heal, partly because of these wonderful hooks!

The Furls Streamline crochet hooks help so that when I am crocheting I don’t have to do as much work, taking a ton of the pressure off of my shoulder as well!

In the past two months I have grown my streamline collection to 9 hooks! I wanted to have one in every size hook that I use regularly because I never want to have to use another crochet hook again! These hooks have literally made it possible for me to crochet again and for that I am so thankful!

  1. i recently received one as a gift but haven’t really had a chance to use it yet. i have been working a ton of hours during the pandemic and have had very little chance to crochet (which makes me sad)

  2. Amazing giveaway!!!! This hooks looks amazing, I have heard of them but never use them before, thank you for the chance to win it.

  3. I keep seeing Furls. I started crocheting again about 2 years ago after many many many years away from it. I currently use other hooks but it seems like all of a sudden Furls is everywhere. Not sure I am up for switching but definitely intrigued!

  4. I’ve never used a Furl’s hook before, but as I get a lot of hand and wrist pain too, it sounds like I need to give them a try. Thanks for sharing your review!

  5. I’ve been suffering for the past month with pain in my thumb and wrist. I’ve had to stop crocheting which breaks my heart. Maybe a new hook would help?

  6. I love my streamline swirls hook. I was only able to afford one when they did the quarantine pack. I would give my eye teeth for more but my budget cannot stretch to spending £18 for one hook

  7. It’s nice to read an honest review that was not instigated by a sponsor. Your review makes me want to try one.

  8. I’ve never used a Furls hook but do have considerable right handed pain with my crochet. Like you, I have had to almost totally stop crocheting due to the pain. I’m anxious to try a Furls hook to see the difference.

  9. They sound amazing! I’ve been wanting to try them for a while now. I have a lot of joint and shoulder pain. I’m sure switching over would have a huge impact for me too.

  10. I just got my first swirl and love the length. Planned to use it for my current project but had some issue with the TruBoo splitting on me. I plan to test it with a different yarn.

  11. I’ve never used these hooks before. I did have a look one time but they were so expensive for me, so I ultered to cheaper options. They look really nice tho. Although I wonder if it would feel odd holding it because how wide it is in a middle. Especially if never used awider hook handle. But they look gorgeous. I’m glad it helped you with your pain.

  12. I have several of the swirls Streamline crochet hooks. My husband bought most of them and some Odyssey hooks for me as gifts before he passed away in January. They took some getting used to but i love using them, not only because they were a thoughtful gift from him but because they allow me to continue to crochet with no hand pain and so i am 71yo that means a lot.

  13. The furls hooks are lovely – I have one so far. Just not sure that they are worth the expense being on a fixed income.

  14. I have never used a furla crochet hook, but have always wanted to. They just were hard to justify the expense for one hook.

  15. I love love love the furls streamline products! I’m trying to replace all of my hooks with them! They make crocheting so much easier!!

  16. This post has been really eye opening. I occasionally get similar pain after long hours/days of crocheting. Thank you for your review! I’m looking into investing in these books.

  17. You’ve convinced me! I need these hooks. I suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome and have arthritis in my thumb (not quite 40 yet). I use Clover Amour hooks and they help, but I still get some pain in my thumb. Thanks for the chance to win!

  18. I love Furls hooks!! I probably have about 6 of the streamline and 3 of the swirls 😊 They fit great in your hand which makes your work effortless.

  19. I honestly don’t use any other hooks anymore, just my furls. I have them in every size they have available. High quality and guaranteed. I follow them on both instagram and on FB and they really do offer a lifetime guarantee on these hooks, no matter what happens to them. I never seen them not replace a hook. I wholeheartedly agree they relieve the pain in your hand when working on a project.

  20. These sound like an answer to a prayer! I am having that same left sided shoulder and thumb pain and have had to stop crocheting and put projects away for a week or so to rest.

    Is there a case designed to hold them?

  21. I have not yet tried a Furls crochet hook, but as someone who has rheumatoid arthritis and thus many problems with my hands and wrists, I am looking forward to trying them to see if they can extend my tolerance for crocheting for longer periods of time. Thanks for the review!

  22. I have never used the Furls Streamline hooks, but would like to. I have used other ergonomic hooks and really like them. I have issues with my hands going to sleep.

  23. I have fallen in love with Furls hooks also! I used to have elbow pain from hooking. I no longer have this pain. I had to get used to using the Furls hook because it was different than any other hook that I had used. Now I reach for them each time I crochet!

  24. Thank you for the opportunity to enter into the Furls giveaway. I have a lot of pain in my hands and would love to try these hooks. I hope to purchase a furls too. Thank you

  25. I’m excited for a chance to win. My birthday is next month, so I might just treat myself & order my first Furls. Thank you for the giveaway!

  26. I use both Streamline and Odyssey hooks and love them both. I have damaged muscles in the top of my wrists (not carpal tunnel) from my work when I was installing slot machine bases, having to twist my hands to reach award places to bolt the bases together. I use them constantly on big projects and when the pain starts in. Yes they took time to get use to but they do help tremendously.

  27. I’ve used furls a few times. I have a couple of the swirls. I agree, they are lightweight! I don’t have strong wrists, so the lighter the hook, the better.

  28. I use Streamline, Swirls and Oddesy depending on the yarn. I too have tendinitis but in both arms (hands,elbows,shoulders) and finding these hooks was a game changer. Please do try them out, each is different. Good luck everyone and thank you for the raffle!

  29. I have never used a furls hook before but would really love to try it is my hands get tired so quickly and want to spend more time on my projects

  30. I’ve never tried Furls hooks, but I have heard of them. I have tendonitis as well, and if they help ease the pain, that is a plus in my book. I’ll have to give them a try.

  31. I’m shopping for ergonomic crochet hooks and greatly appreciate your recommendation!! 🙂
    I was testing gauge for a new pattern last night and noticed it bothered my hands more than usual. Thank you so much!

  32. So glad you are in less pain now and that you’ve got your dream hooks. I hope one day to own a Furls hook as everyone raves about them. Good luck everyone in the raffle.

  33. I have never used Furls Crochet hooks before but I have heard that they are some of the most amazing hooks! I really love the wood finish and I’m glad that they are helping you with the pain!

  34. I have used only Furls hooks for several years now and have not had any hand or wrist pain since I made the switch. I have almost a full set of the Odyssey and the Streamline Swirls. I love both styles. They truly are everything they are made out to be.

  35. I’ve never used a Furls crochet hook. I’ve done so much research on them and read wonderful reviews. I’ve followed them on all their social media venues admiring their beautiful designs. I must admit, I am feeling the aches and pains of crocheting for more than thirty years. However, crocheting is a stress reliever for me. My grounding foundation in a world of hectic uncertainty. Thank you for you beautiful, informative and encouraging blogs. I truly enjoy your patterns and posts.

  36. I’ve never used a furls crochet hook, but I’ve seen them recommended in a few different places, and once I’m finished school and have an income again, I’d like to look into them!

  37. I’ve ordered my Furls, but have never used one. You gave a very good review on them and I hope to be just as pleased. Thank you for the coupon and the giveaway. Have a good day.😊

  38. Yes I have recently bought my first girls hook and I love it. I was to eventually get one in every size soon. I love them that much.

  39. I have a couple of Furls Odyssey hooks and find them too heavy, but I’d like to try out the Streamline ones! I definitely get periodic hand pain now from crocheting, so always on the looking for things to help. 🙂

  40. I have never used Furls hooks just can’t justify the expense for one hook. I also am not sure if I would like the bulk in my hand, I currently use metal hooks and have had for 47 years. I have never had issues with my hands or wrists but I do with my shoulder not crochet related. I guess if I don’t try at least one Furls hook I’ll never know. Michelle , you and so many others have said how wonderful they are and I’m so glad they have solved your issues.
    Thanks for the giveaway. Good Luck Ladies !

  41. I have several different Furls hooks; a couple of odyssey, regular streamline and the swirls and I prefer the swirls. The odyssey are just a bit too heavy for me, but the swirls are lightweight and the yarn just glides so nicely. I do wish that they were a bit shorter because my hands aren’t very big, but that’s the only thing I would change.

  42. I’ve used furls a few times. I have borrowed them from my friend. I do not have any due to my fixed (tight) budget.They are lightweight; comfortable to use! Maybe this will be my chance to get one.

  43. Hi. I’ve heard and read so much about the Furls hooks. And you make them sound like a dream to have. Thanks for the giveaway. Good luck everyone.

  44. I haven’t used a Furls hook yet but I have been thinking of trying one out. There are a lot a really good reviews on their hooks.

  45. I am excited to have an opportunity to win your giveaway for a Furls hook! I too have pain with crocheting, I’m going to have save up & try one, I’ve heard so many good things about them, maybe I can buy one for myself for my 50th birthday this September, but which one? I don’t know where to start, size? Colour? So many choices! Thank you for your generosity & congrats to the winner!!

  46. I LOVE my odyssey hooks! I want to try the streamlines. I have noticed I don’t hold my hook as tight with them and considerably less pain.

  47. I got my 4th and 5th ones in the mail today. I have been lucky enough to get all of mine while onsale. I now have 3 Streamlines and 1 Streamline swirl and one yellow and Nickle Odyssey. I love all of them. I too have tendonitis in my right shoulder, the one I crochet with, and I also have some cervical disc issues, these hooks make me feel so much better when I use them. I was very skepticle of the Odyssey because it is so heavy, but I absolutely love it. The weight helps my wrist and arm and shoulder feel better too. I think because of the grip and the difference in weight, it has a different way to work with it, and does not tire as easily. I am a true believer in their hooks. I just have to wait for them to be on sale. If it was not for their Birthday sale, I never would have been able to get the Odyssey one because I am a chronic pain patient and cannot work, and also cannot get disability, so fund age is low. I have lucked out so far this year, but I think my luck may have run out so far.as far as being able to purchase. I will keep my fingers crossed about any giveaways! I hope you enjoy your hooks as much as I do mine 🙂

  48. I fortunately have 9 Furls Streamline hooks, 6 which I purchased directly from Furls & 3 which I purchased via Cre8tion Crochet as a special promotion. I absolutely 💗 them & hope to acquire more – perhaps a few of the beautiful Streamline Swirles. Thanks for the opportunity.

  49. I have many Furls Crochet Hooks!
    Wood Streamlines-10
    Streamline Swirls-10
    Odyssey’s-9
    Alphas-7
    Candy Shop-3
    Tunisian-3
    I love the all! The wooden ones are so light and my favorites.
    I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and these hooks have made a huge difference, my pain is much less and I can crochet again! I will never use any hook but Furls!

  50. Yes, I do have a furls hook made of tulipwood. I received as a gift,I think 6 years ago now. It is very nice. I like using it.

  51. I love my Furls crochet hooks. I have a lot of wrist pain when I crochet and these hooks definitely help reduce the strain that causes the pain.

  52. I had a Furls wooden hook that I enjoyed but it rolled off the table and broke. The replacement wasn’t anything like what I had and don’t use it ever. Doesn’t fit my hand well like my original did. Very disappointed.

  53. I became addicted to the streamline swirls last fall.I love the smooth feel. I also use my streamline wood H which was my first ever. My wrist hurts during double crochet and furls really make it better.

  54. I have not tried them yet….but I’m really on the fence! I’ve heard good and bad about them. I kinda wish they sold all the common sizes (D-J) in a set with a discounted price. I really don’t want to buy each hook individually, because you know what happens….you need a hook in the size you don’t have.

  55. I have been using furls for years….so my favorite hooks. I have 2 of their yarn bowls, 2 necklaces and 2 hook cases. So glad to hear they help you too.

  56. I have suffered with pain in my right arm before (tennis/golfers elbow) from trying to complete a blanket I had gotten behind on. I will definitely look into these hooks from your recommendation. Thanks!

  57. I never used furls crochet hooks but it seems like would be what I need as well to lower the pain in my wrist. I’d love to win my first one. Thank you for this giveaway!

  58. I love Furls! I finally ordered a few last month (Streamline and Odyssey) and I am DEFINITELY a fan. I also have some shoulder pain from crocheting, and hand/wrist issues, so I’m hoping these will help. I can’t wait to get some of their gorgeous Tunisian hooks, as well!

  59. Thank you for this post. I have been seriously considering purchasing a Furls hook,but I wasn’t sure if it’s worth the price. Good luck all!

  60. Nice review! Glad your pains are going away! I too have not tried a Furls, but I’ve heard nothing but good things about them. I’m a December birthday, so I’m putting Furls on my birthday/Christmas list!

  61. I absolutely love using my streamline furls when making blankets and scarves and such, they are light weight and fit right in my hand as to not have to struggle to find that great grip that lets you crochet for a bit longer between breaks…thanks for the great opportunity and good luck to all that enter!!

  62. I have never used a Furls hook but would very much like to try one out as all reviews definitely make them seem very rewarding to use.

  63. I would ❤to win one of these amazing hooks I don’t own one but would 💙to try one my fingers will be crossed thanks for this awesome giveaway good luck everyone ❤💚💜💙💛❤💚💜💙💛❤💚💜💙💛❤💚💜💙💛❤💚💜💙💛❤💚

  65. I’ve tried a furls hook, but have not made a project yet. I would love to use one. Thank you for hosting this give away.

  66. Thanks for the review. These are very beautiful hooks. It is wonderful how the use of these new hooks have reduced you pain. I would love to win so that I could try them out myself.

  67. I love my furls. I have 2 oddessy, and two Streamline swirl and I love them! They are different sizes of course and work so much easier than the slender hooks I started with.

  68. I have several Furls hooks in Streamline and Odyssey styles. They are extremely helpful for hand fatigue. I don’t want to use anything else.

  69. I have never used the furls hooks, but have heard so much about them, that I would love to try them. I have difficulty with mobility so using a hook that causes less pain would be just what I need.

  70. I haven’t used a furls crochet hook yet…..I would love to but it always seems like my rainy day fund for purchasing one always gets used for something that comes up………..

  71. I have furls streamline three of them and furls odyssey 1 all gifted to me from my son. I love the handles, they are beautiful but the hook you can keep. They constantly snag on my yarn when crocheting due to being pointy. They have slowed me down. I really wanted to like them.
