If you’ve been crocheting very long at all you know what it’s like when your hands start to cramp up. It can be frustrating, especially when you really want or need to finish a project. Well, at a friend’s insistence I decided to give Clover Soft Touch hooks a try. They really are incredibly comfortable to hold, and I was able to crochet for longer than normal without my hand aching. I highly recommend giving them a try. I use a knife hold for my crochet hook, but I suspect they’ll be just as comfy for those using a pen hold as well. Another bonus- they come in G (4.0mm), H (5.00mm), and size 7 (4.5mm).
Hook Size Tip – Think you don’t have a size 7 hook? Think again. If you check your collection you may find that some of your G hooks are 4.5mm (a size 7) instead of the standard 4mm.
