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!
Disclaimer: This post includes an affiliate link.
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!
When crocheting big, I crochet with Clover Amour Jumbos! I can honestly say these are my go to hooks when using thick yarns. And you know when I love something, I have to share. So I'm super happy to have a special giveaway for you, sponsored by Clover USA - with TWO winners!!

My arthritic hands would love these.
they look lovely. Great for my arthritic hands!!
Thank you, you have the best giveaways!!
As every crafty person knows, tools are just as if not more important for your yarn craft as yarn, or any other essential, and these new JUMBO hooks are a must for every crocheter, that is unless you live under a rock, and have not seen the trend in chunky and bulky yarns increasing every season!
Personally, I love gazing at my tools for the satisfaction I get using them, so bright colors are a must for me, and make me feel like a Superhero when I use them...so just get ready to call me Cloveress, super hooker, coming soon to a project near you!!
A BIG thanks to Moogly for this chance to enter!! These crochet hooks look AMAZING !
I would love to win these for my friend's crochet club at a high needs high school.
I LOVE Clover hooks. I use them almost exclusively. I would be thrilled to win the jumbo size, as I have not had the chance to try them yet. Thanks so much for a fantastic giveaway.
I have these hooks in the smaller sizes. Love them!

I already have the set of smaller sizes, would love to add these larger hooks to my tool inventory.

Would love to have these, i have arthritis in my thumbs.
I would love to win a set, but I don't have twitter or Instagram. So here's hoping that with just entering enough will help me win.
I primarily work with bulky/chunky yarn so this would be perfect, especially since I have carpal tunnel and it can be a struggle!!
Crocheting with bigger needles doesn't make my hands hurt!
I would love so much to win these large clover steel hooks. My thumbs are getting painful using regular handles ones. I've started wrapping rubber bands around handles to make them thick.
A non USA resident here... What a pity!
Love give aways! Hope I win! These big hooks are awesome
I am a huge Furls hook fan, but these larger hooks look really comfy! I like to use thick yarn for winter hats and scarfs. I am currently switching between an old plastic 'Q' hook and a wood hook I bought off EBay, but the wood hook is almost too heavy and my hand gets tired and achy after using it for a while. It's that old friend Arthur Itis visiting, especially during cold, wet weather!
I love using the chunky yarns for knitting. It would be fun to crochet with these pretty hooks.
It would be like Christmas to win these hooks. I haven't seen them before and would love to try them.
I don't use Instagram or Twitter but I did enter with everything else. I love my Clover Soft Touch hooks and would love these in the big sizes! Thank you for offering them as a give-away, Kara.
Not Kara, Tamara! Auto correct kills me!!!!!!
🙂 No worries! Good luck!
Thank you for the opportunity to win these 🙂
Hi love these! I like to use chunky yarns for yarn baskets! Thanks for a neat Giveaway!
I would LOVE to win these ?
Would love to win!
These are exactly what I have been looking for and entered but ubfortunately I am in Australia. Sorry I didn't read this properly the 1st time.
Thank you for holding such an exciting and wonderful giveaway.
I need larger hooks and I've been eyeing these at the store! Thank you for the chance to win them!!
these clover hooks are my favorite! i have the smaller hooks and use them all the time ^_^
Ooooooooooooooooooooooo I LOVE them!!
I would soooo love to have these hooks. I am relatively new to crochet compared to most of you. So trying new tools are great, and having new tools to grow my chance to try different patterns would be wonderful.
Thanks for the opportunity.
I would love to win these. My grandmother and my mother crocheted all the time. Both passed before I was able to really learn from them. This would allow me to follow in their footsteps and crochet a blanket to add to the ones that I have from both of them. Then I can pass them down to my children.
These look great, I have up to 7.00mm so these would be great to round of my set. Thanks for the chance.
I love the smaller Clover Amour hooks and use them the most. I'm so happy that they came out with a large set too.
Good to know the plastic is slick, thanks for sharing that. I've shied away from the plastic because I had one (different brand) that "squeaked" through the yarn and made me cringe so I only used it once.
