These hooks from Pony are great all rounders! We have been using them in our beginner's sessions since the very beginning and have never had any complaints. The hooks have a nice pointy head so they sail through your work and never have any burrs anywhere to snag on your work.
We stock sizes from 3mm to 12mm so you should be able to find the perfect size for your next project. All sizes up to 5mm are made from metal and above that they are plastic to prevent them from becoming too heavy to work with.
