I thought they would turn out perfect in miniature. 2 strands of sewing thread held together, 1.3mm hook.
Some things I learned working these in miniature:
- With the small steel hooks, there's a taper to the hook so you have to make sure the threads stay very close to the hook part or the loops will come off bigger than expected. This was a bit difficult when working double and triple crochets.
- Don't use a very long thread - it will get snagged up.
- When using a double strand, use the two ends as the tail and leave the working end connected in a loop. If you need to add additional length, pull another length through the loop so the two loops connect - that way you don't have to tie anything. Only works once though.
- Work a lot slower than normal with exaggerated movements and twist the hook more than you normally would to pull the loops through each other.
