Apologies for rubbish pics, these things are hard to photograph.
When making my River tam jumper I found that because I had left my crochet hook at my parents and I didn't want to bother buying a new one so I made my own. I was relatively easy to use but I should have sanded it more as the wool I was using was quite fuzzy and therefore would catch on any bumps.

Based loosely on this tutorial:

BTW: be careful using a penknife. If you can think of a better, safer way to whittle this then use it!
