In the past 10 days I've made 4 and a half hats and my hands are finally starting to cramp really badly lol. Any advice for some kind of hand stretches or ways to help with the discomfort?

This is very helpful! I do need to look into some nice compression gloves too and take more breaks. I have a problem with getting zoned out and just going for too long

compression gloves help but they are a bandaid over the issue. take a break every hour and do hand/wrist stretches and gently shake it out after

if you look up hand stretches for crochet/knitting you can find a bunch of them. Also make sure to take a break each hour to stretch and check your comfort
