Clover Amour Ergonomic Hooks Review

Excuse the missing hooks, I’m actually using 2 of them right now!

If you read my Yarnology ergonomic crochet hook review a year ago, you know that I’m an avid crocheter whose wrists couldn’t take the abuse of crochet consistently with a normal hook. In fact, those hooks were how this site changed to a crochet blog, since I could finally crochet again without pain!

Ask any long time crocheter and they’ll tell you that clover hooks are reported to be one of the more expensive and best made hooks available.

This set of Clover Amour hooks had a lot to live up to. Especially, since I already had the other set I mentioned, which I truly love working with. So, let’s see how they did….

Price

The full set of 12 ergonomic hooks is priced between $74.99 – $79.99 (USD)

This works out to $6.25 to $6.67 a hook. The hooks individually are usually $8.50.

However, you can use a coupon on the hooks (which is how I got them) at a big box craft store like Joann’s or Michael’s. Try waiting for a 50 or 60% off one item coupon*

*When you’re planning to use a coupon just make sure that it’s not on sale, clearance, or is being sold as a doorbuster. You might get a comparable price if it is, but always double check with some mental math or a calculator. You don’t want to get sticker shock. 🤑🤯

My experience

I make it a point always use the product for at least a month before I review it and this one is no exception. I started using them mid June 2020, right off the bat, I enjoyed using them the first time I tried them. My hands didn’t act up from them, but I wasn’t sure if it would hold up with extended use.

It is now December 2020, I have to say that I’m impressed. They’ve held up well, no sign of wear and tear unlike some padded hooks I’ve used before that broke after less than a week.

Green I hook, used quite a bit. Blue H hook, not used at all. Brown J hook, used quite a bit.

I found that this set does really well if you like working with smaller hook sizes. I’ve used the E/3.5mm, G/4.mm, I/5.5mm, and J/6.mm hooks quite a bit in particular. There is no sign of wear on the handles as you can see in the photo above. I love how smoothly the yarn glides over the hook, it has somethingto to do with the matte finishI think. I’ve used many different yarn types and never had an issue with any of them.

Conclusion

Are they better than the Yarnology ergonomic hooks from hobby lobby?

I would say they’re on par actually. It’s plastic vs metal so it’s not a direct comparison, but they both work very well and don’t hurt my hands. Actually, I might even go so far as to say that together they make the perfect set since the clover hooks in this set go up to a J hook and the Yarnology ergonomic hooks in general only go down to an H/5.5. Personally, I like having multiple of the mid range hooks since I like to keep my hooks with my WIPs.
