Large Crochet/Rug Hooks

Turn of the Century handmade wooden rug hooks are now available in sizes N, P, Q & S; in addition, 9mm and 13mm. Each hook is individually freehand crafted by William Schmidt in his own signature style. They are ideal for multi-strand crocheting as well as traditional rug crocheting.

Most are made of hard, high quality native hardwoods for beauty and a reasonable working weight. The large crochet hooks have the intricate design for only 1/4 of their length to provide for a greater smooth grip area.

The hook portion is a finely sculpted adaptation of the smaller hooks. The deep rounded gullet and gentle curves are designed for smooth operation. This differentiates it from many handmade and most commercial hooks that are simply slotted or have sharp corners.

Caution: Though these hooks are made of hard, strong woods they are not as hard as plastic or metal. They should not be used for abrasive yarns or materials.

Large Hook Sizes are Boye N (8mm), Boye P (10mm), Boye Q (16mm), Bates S (19mm), and in-between 9mm and 13mm sizes. The 13mm (about 1/2 inch) fills the large gap between the 10mm "P" and the 16mm "Q". The hooks are about 7-1/2 inches long.

The woods in the above illustration are (top to bottom) Jatoba, Maple, Wild Cherry, Ash and Black Walnut. The Cherry will darken to about the color of Jatoba in time. The Jatoba is actually a Brazilian wood that I will continue to use only for the size "N" hooks (while my small supply lasts).

You are encouraged to request specific hooks, (eg. size P - #10 walnut).
The numbers on the wood lists correspond to the numbers by the hooks in the adjoining picture.

Be sure I have your e-mail or phone in case that hook is already spoken for. It would be wise to specify alternates if acceptable. I will mark reserved hooks as soon as I can.

In the following pictures, the woods are, from hardest to softest: Maple, Dogwood, Japanese Maple, Oak, Ash, Plum, Apple, Cherry, Honey Locust, Pear, Walnut, Elm, Poplar.

In stock now:
All hooks NOT marked "SOLD" are available.
Please, DO NOT request hooks that have been labeled as SOLD.

Reserved and sold hooks will be labeled as SOLD beside the wood identification. (page updated 12/17/2014)

OOOPPS!!!! Made some the wrong size.
When making the 10mm hooks. I misread my chart and made 11.5 mm hooks. They are on their own special page: the 11.5mm Hook Page.
These are a one-time thing. When they are gone, they are gone.


All hooks are 13MM.
