Can I use normal crochet hook for Tunisian crochet?

Which yarn is best for Tunisian crochet?

Tunisian Crochet and Yarn

Usually a worsted weight acrylic or wool yarn was crocheted with an “afghan hook” smaller than a size I tend to use. (I usually start with a size K/6.5mm hook for medium weight yarns and then go up or down hook sizes from there.)

What size hook should you use for Tunisian crochet?

So in summary you will need: 30cm tunisian hook if possible, or normal hook with straight shaft. It should be 6mm if using a DK yarn, or two sizes bigger than the normal size required for your yarn.

What are interchangeable crochet hooks for?

Interchangeable crochet hooks are hook tips that use the same handle. Why is this such an awesome creation? It allows you to carry an entire set of crochet hooks in a small compact kit. Many times when starting a project you will find that you need to use different hook sizes until you get the gauge right.
