There are two basic ways to hold a crochet hook:

1- THE UNDERHAND PENCIL GRIP:

Hold your hook with your thumb and index finger, and let the handle of the hook rest on top of your hand.

2- THE OVERHAND KNIFE GRIP:

Try both ways to see which way you feel more comfortable, and use the one that works best for you.

I feel comfortable alternating both ways to rest my hand, maybe you too! So always remember, there is no a better way.
