Details of swap:
If you are a hooker, then this swap is for you! This swap is for crocheters of all ages, skill levels,
and techniques.

You will be required to send One Medium item and at least Five small items. I would prefer if you tried to
send at least 10 small items but if you can't five is the minimum. Supplies and Hooker Pride items are highly

Here is a more detailed explaination of the requirements:
1 medium
must be crafted;
Suggestions: WIPs bag, yarn container crafted not store bought, hook roll;

5 smalls required, 10 smalls preferred
does not need to be crafted;
1 small = 1 brand new hook, 3 used hooks, 1 skein of store bought yarn that costs less than $7, 2 skeins of store bought yarn that costs less than $2, 1 set of stitch markers minimum 5 markers per set, store bought accessories like row counters that cost a combined total for less than $5 meaning if u buy 2 row counters for $1 each and then buy a pack of those plastic stitch markers for $2.99 those three items count as one small because they're so small and were so cheap
2 smalls = 2 brand new hooks, 6 used hooks, 1 skein of store bought yarn that costs more than $7 but less than $15, 1 set of stitch markers if they were say bought on etsy and cost more than $5, 1 set of hand made stitch markers with more than 5 to a set, a store bought yarn container like the ones u can get at walmart or michaels for between $6-$9, Most things that cost between $7 and $15.
3 smalls = 3 brand new hooks, 9 used hooks, 1 skein of store bought yarn that costs more than $15, 1 skein of hand dyed or hand spun yarn at least 90 yards, set of hand made crochet hooks at least 3 hooks to a set, set of store bought crochet hooks at least 5 to a set, a crochet hook roll or hook case that is not your medium item, a WIPs or supplies bag that is not your medium item, and most things that cost above $15.
