Comments

  1. The size 2 hook is an American size. They are smaller metal needles for fine, small, lace-work and are used with the crochet cottons that come sized that are numbered insted of by name such as worsted weight.

  2. I wanted to know what size a 2hook is, as Americans have Letters on theirs, rather than numbers, please?
