Addi Swing Crochet Hooks – Ergonomic or Uneconomical?

I had bought an Addi Swing crochet hook in a size 3mm over a year ago. I bought it because it claimed it was ergonomic and would help with hand fatigue.

I finally got around to trying it out and made a video review of what I thought.

I unfortunately didn’t find the high price tag (over $13 US for one hook) translating into less pain. More like an awkwardly shaped handle that I couldn’t hold just right.

I’ve had this video review of my Addi Swing Crochet Hook up for almost a week now and find that many people share my sentiment — they just aren’t that comfortable to hold. Whether a knife or pencil grip, the ergonomic handle forces you to hold it a certain way, which for some reason doesn’t point my hook in the correct way to crochet.

Do any of you have an Addi? What do you think of it? Let us know below.
