Guessing this never happened?  Have been scouring the internet for one and then I thought we might have one on here. Undecided

I maybe should note that there are two types of Crop-A-Dile.  There is the original and then the Big Bite.  You may want to check out both, though I think the little one will work for what you're wanting to do.  I lucked into a clearance when I got mine so I ended up purchasing both!  Just finished using my little one to create a reusable template for crocheting on flip flops.  I'm too lazy to measure every time I want to do some.

At least the supply of cans are cheap enough to play around with!

My fear is stepping on one of those darn slivers!

The CAD should go through both with no problem!  Amazing little gadget.  It will even set grommets.  Something else you may want to consider as a nice touch?

I believe http://www.donnascrochetshoppe.com has some in her animal pattern section.

Unsure what look you're going for, but what about maybe using something like a Crop-A-Dile to punch holes in the borders of the can/can pieces and crocheting into those holes to join the pieces together?  Is that maybe what you're going for?  It may be the obvious.  The aluminum is usually so heavy that it takes a heavier punch to get through it.  And the CAD is safer than using a drill on metal.  Oh and lay out a bag under where you're cutting the cans apart.  The lil slivers tend to fly!

I searched WalMart's site for the set that I have, but was only able to find out of stock on another site.  Just know that WalMart has for right about $26, I think.  The only downfall is that the hook size is very small and in white, so hard to see in low light and no case.  I may mak myself a case, eventually, and add sizes to it somehow.  Also, two of the small ergonomic hooks will fit in the toothbrush holder at a time and I rarely carry that many with me.

My mom and I have each gotten sets at WalMart that both of us are happy with.  She got a set that runs between $17-20.  It's an all pink set with a case and has extra slots for expansion.  (Her set is this one:   https://www.walmart.com/ip/Boye-6-Pink-Ergo-Crochet-Hook-Set-Sizes-E-K-Aluminum-3396260001/52195766 ).

I ended up with another set with multiple colors of handles, and no case, that was around $25, but it had more hook sizes and I tend to go with small hooks that weren't included in her set.  At the time of purchase, I was planning on using both quite frequently.  (I really need to take pix of all of my projects to post on here....have been so slack in doing so and I have done a ton of projects over the course of this year!)

Another that I have to add.  I just started my first baby "throw" (their name, not mine...sounds a little wrong!). Anyway, I found a nice clear mini backpack to carry it in, but couldn't stand my hook catching the blanket and possibly screwing up what I had done.  I had found a toothbrush carrier (that really doesn't look like one) a few weeks ago to use for my sketching pencils and decided that it also works well to hold my hook in my bag keeping my crochet work protected.  I am using the ergonomic hooks and seem to fit ok.

Hoping more of her natural instinct will kick in soon.  I think she belongs to someone in the neighborhood, who decided she could be an outdoor cat for the summer.  She'll start to do something with the babies and look to me for approval.  Except moves every now and then which I don't think are good ideas.  Right now they're in the driveway under a rarely used car, so open to predators on four sides.  Ugh.
