Does anyone else have an issue with getting blisters on your thumb when making amigurumi?
No blisters for me, but sometimes my hands get sore from holding my hook too tight
I find that I tend to get them on the side of my middle finger from the way I hold my hooks. I find that bandaids (fabric ones) or medical tape can help.
Maybe use a bigger hook? Or it might be the tension and r u new to amigurumi.
Can you give us a picture of how you hold your hook?
Your hook needs to have some polymer where your thumb rests in my opinion.
I did when I was new and doing it a lot, but not anymore. You could play around with your tension hand or yarn size/hook size combo if you find you’re gripping super tight and causing it. Or if it’s just from friction, there are little cushion/grips you can slip over your hook and move it to where your blister spot it happening.
What are these called / where can i find them. I think this would help out with my c hook which is the one giving me issues. I’ve crochet for over 20 years and never had this problem but i also normally didn’t go below a size f.
