Which hook should I use?

Choos­ing the right tools for the job.

Once you have a reel of wire, you can start play­ing! You’ll need to use a sturdy metal hook that will stand up to the tough­ness of the wire – a wooden hook will get dam­aged. The size of hook you use isn’t an ex­act science (much de­pends on the tech­nique you use and per­sonal choice), so try mak­ing a small chain with a few dif­fer­ent sizes and see which one you pre­fer. You can see the chains we made from a 0.315mm wire on the right, us­ing ei­ther a 3mm, 3.5mm or 4mm hook. The size and shape of the chains varies with each hook size, but we pre­ferred the 3.5mm hook be­cause it cre­ated chains that look the most neat and round.
