There are two types of crochet accessories. There are the ones to help you crochet and there are the personal ones for you to wear that you have made
There's not a lot to say about the former. The tools for crochet are really quite simple. All you need really is a hook. Your choice of hook depends on the thickness of your yarn and the effect you want to produce. Use a hook that is slightly too big if you want something lightweight and lacy. Use one too small if you want your resulting fabric sturdy. You can find fancy pretty ones too if you just want to show off or feel special. Other than that there's just stich markers if you want to remember a particular spot on your work or to count rows. You can buy little markers just for the job or you can improvise using an old odd earring, a safety pin your just tie in a contrasting piece of yarn.
If it is these types of accessories you are looking for one of the best places is Amazon UK:crochet accessories UK

Or the Amazon site for the country you live in.
Other than that theres all the usual haberdashery bits and bobs like button, zips, motifs, pins sewing up needles and stuff like that.
So that's the boring bit over and done with - lets get on to stuff you can make - all those wonderful and beautiful crocheted accessories to wear. Not always vital but always needed. All those lovely things that help to hold you together, to hold your hair up, or just to hold your bits and pieces in one place

Extreme crochet. The yarn is too thick. The hook is far too big to handle. Or you use your fist. It is fast and it is furious. It is very easy to do, but needs muscle and it needs space.
