I love the trend toward big, thick, super chunky yarns - but finding the hooks to use with those yarns was a bit of a challenge. Clover Amour to the rescue!

Clover Amour is a super popular brand of hooks, and it's not hard to see why. Besides looking great, they have comfortable ergonomic handles, nice slick hooks, and they are color coded by size - but the size is also printed on the handle, so you don't have to memorize the colors either.
Clover Amours are my favorite thread hooks, saving my hands from the cramps that used to just be part of thread work for me. And their standard size hooks are just as fun to use. So when I saw they added the big jumbo hooks, I was overjoyed!
What really sets the big Clover Amour hooks apart is that they were really thoughtful in their design. While the other Clover Amours feature metal hook portions, the jumbo hooks use plastic, to keep the hook lightweight in the hands. This plastic is super slick though - not a single catch on the yarn, and I've been using them a lot!
In addition, Clover designed these big hooks to be longer overall, and this is a very good thing. There is plenty of room to get a comfortable grip on the hook, whether you're knife hold or pencil hold, and there's a nice long shaft between the hook and the handle. So you can make all those tall stitches without having to cram them all on or overlap your loops!
The jumbo Clover Amours get used just about every day here at Moogly headquarters - and I definitely recommend them. They make using thick yarn so much more fun, and the size range is unprecedented! There are 7 sizes in the jumbo range, all available on www.clover-usa.com as well as Amazon US - K/6.5mm, 7mm, L/8mm, M/N/9mm, N/P/10mm, 12mm, and P/Q/15mm!
