i see people go super fast holding it like A, but you know, that's ok.  and i do get super-tight sitches.

I use B as well and go pretty fast (well, I've been told I'm rather fast). Perhaps that is because of lots of practice and also I didn't know there are  more stitches than double crochet and chain for oh so long. And now I am incompetent at following real patterns and stuff. And yeah, it is quite tight, which perhaps is part of the pattern problem. Hmmm. Now I have to play around with a few things.

B here- glad to see this thread as I've always had a sneaking suspicion that I was holding my hook wrong. Have tried A but don't seem to have as much control of the hook that way and find it really slow. But B can make my wrist and the top of my hand hurt after a few hours.

*grins*

Lots of B-people.  being an A, my only concern is that I'll find it hard to learn knitting when I learn that.  I've not got any crocheters to compare with speed wise, but I think I'm doing OK.  I had real issues controlling my hook holdng it like B, but that might be to do with my dyspraxia.

A -- and I've done plenty of work that was too tight! I'm so old that when I was a child just about every mom and grandma did some knitting and crocheting (though not all of them liked to), and I never saw the B crochet hook hold till pictures on the Net. There was more variety in knitting positions, and I was taught B for knitting.

I use B, but that's how I hold a pen, too...

I'm an A.
I feel like I have more control that way (no wonder, since I write, draw and paint that way too).

I'm A 'B'.  It absolutely kills my wrist to hold it like "A".
