All for amigurumi, otherwise I will most likely use the recommend size for the yarn

Baby/thin velvets: 2.0-2.5mm
Weight 3 acrylic: 3.0mm
Weight 4 acrylic: 3.0mm (yarn over) or 3.5mm (yarn under)
Typical cheniles/velvets: 3.5-4.0mm (depends on how thick it is)
Blanket: 6.0mm

Thick: 6.50mm or 8mm ( really depends on the thickness of the yarn)
Acrylic: 4mm, 4.25mm, and 5mm ( depends on how tight I want my project to be, and I also use some different style of hooks for these)
Velvet: 5mm ( it’s literally the only hook I’ve ever used for velvet I’ve never tried to use a different one)

But here are all the hooks I use in their number order
