    Clara,
    If a crochet hook is like a knitting needle, those are allowed...and the yarn is no problem.

    This expert is helping you out because there weren't many active Delta Air Lines experts.

    crochet hook & yarn are permitted in your carry-on baggage or checked baggage.

    Items needed to pursue a Needlepoint project are permitted in your carry-on baggage or checked baggage with the exception of circular thread cutters or any cutter with a blade contained inside which cannot go through the checkpoint and must go in your checked baggage.

      The TSA recommends the following to ensure you have no problems bringing your work on board: Circular needles should be no longer than 31 inches. Choose bamboo and plastic needles, not metal. Scissors should have blunt tips--and plastic might be preferred to metal. And bring a crochet hook with yarn to save your work in case a TSA officer takes your tools.

      As a rule, shorter needles attract less attention, so try to keep it simple for the purposes of travel. You can take the longer needles with you, but leave those in your checked luggage.
      Bring a self-addressed, stamped envelope with you, just in case. If an officer takes your needles or other tools, he or she will mail them back if you provide the envelope.

      Most of your crafting tools are allowed, including sewing needles, quilting needles, pins, thread cutters and nail clippers.

      A few items will be confiscated no matter what. The TSA says these are no-no's: circular thread cutters, cutters with a blade contained inside, scissors with pointed tips and any longer than 4 inches, knives, razor blades, and anything else that can be perceived as having use as a weapon.
