Funky Polymer Clay Crochet Hook Handles

Materials:

 

  • Polymer clay in various colors (Sculpy, Premo, Fimo, etc.) *if you just want the functionality without the hassle of mixing colors, you can make things easier by just using one color.
  • Straight blade or sharp knife
  • Cookie sheet with parchment paper
  • Crochet hooks

Instructions:

  1. Choose 3-5 colors of clay and knead the clay until it’s soft and then roll the clay into little logs (I made them about 2″ long).
     
  2. Take all the logs and twist them together. Roll on a smooth flat surface.

  3. Fold over and twist again. Roll on a smooth flat surface. Keep doing this until you’re happy with the design. *Be careful not to do it too many times or it will all just turn into one color – likely grey or brown.

  4. Roll the clay smooth and until it’s about the width of a pen and about 4″ long. If you find your piece of clay has gotten too long as you rolled it out just cut off any excess clay so that you have it the correct length.

  5. Gently take the end of your crochet hook and with a back and forth twisting motion push the hook into the clay. Be patient, it goes in pretty easily as long as it isn’t forced quickly. Keep going until you’re almost at the end of the clay log.

  6. Now roll the clay with the hook in it on the smooth surface and taper the end closest to the hook.  Feel free to trim a little from the end if it gets too close to the end.

  7. On the side furthest from the hook, gently tap against your hard surface until it’s flattened.

  8. Add a small circular piece of white clay to the end. This is where you’ll write the hook size with a permanent market or use a stamp to mark the size.

  9. Place  the crochet hook and handle on a cookie sheet that has a layer of parchment paper on it.  Cook in the oven at 275 degrees F for 15 minutes (add a few minutes if it’s thicker than 1/4″).
     
  10. Take out of oven, allow to cool.
