A for thread and

B for yarn.

Not sure why but that's how it is.

I have a friend who holds her hook and yarn in the same hand.  She was a knitter first and self taught to crochet and that's what worked for her.  I've seen pictures of how she holds it and still can't understand how it works.

B. Always. Sometimes I wrap the yarn around the hook and sometimes I just hook the yarn and pull it through.

B.

I taught myself and it was the natural thing for me to do.  sometimes my hand gets sore so I try to switch to A but it's so awkward I might as well be using my left hand.

it's really weird how I hold mine for instance I'll do B for like two or three stitches and then do A for two or three stitches and then back to B etc. I don't know how I do that, half the times I don't even know I'm doing it, my sister(can't knit or crochet doesn't want to learn, I know I tried to teach her) was watching me one day and she was looking at one of the books that shows the two different ways of holding the hook and she was like, "wait ur doing both at the same time, which one are you going to stick too?" I just shrugged my shoulders and kept crocheting lol. So I guess I do them both.

There will always be people who say mean words  because you are different, and sometimes their minds cannot be changed. There are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. THOSE are the people whose WORDS truly matter.

I'm an A person  - I crocheted a 6 x 5 foot afghan in 3 weeks, so I guess I'm pretty fast, though no doubt others are faster!

B
I have tried doing it like A but it hurts my wrist and fingers. Everyone I know that crochet holds their hook like a knife. I haven't seen many people who do it with the pencil style. Wish I could do both though just for a change of pace sometimes.

I'm a solid B. The lady that taught me was an A but I couldn't get good control so I switched. That was about 45 yrs ago. My mom was an A. I do make tighter stitches so I usually go up a hook size.
