Do you have a photo of this bent crochet hook?  I have one that was bent by accident and it works quite well.

I would say Puerto Rican as that is what is also shown in these sites.

I found a "bent crochet" hook for sewings.  It was one of the gifts to all our members for our 30th anniversary as an IOLI charter chapter.   We now give one of these hooks to each new member joining our group.  Why you may ask.....because it makes performing the sewings a real pleasure.

Where can you get a "bent crochet hook" - from Susan Groh.  gsgroh@yahoo.com 

Phone: 816-761-7067

#16 bent crochet hook $7.50 each + shipping

#14 bent crochet hook is also available.

I came across a lady who has a large collection of "unusual" pillows.  Unusual to me, but I think standard in another tradition.  Puerto Rican??

Look here.
