I've been wanting to buy some hooks with big handles but they can be quite expensive. I've also recently started Polymer Clay projects so I have some around. Very good and creative idea, I'll have to give it a try, thanks! :)

i tried this crochet handle project. my handles came out sticky. so after a few days pondering, i discovered a solution for anyone who would like to know. i REMOVED the lacquer with rubbing alcohol. i just put the alcohol on a cloth and rubbed the handle for a few minutes. let it air dry. repeat this step if necessary. all done!!!!

Good idea, I've never tried crocheting with a large handle, it looks comfortable. I may have to try this.
