Amour Crochet Hook Set

If you're looking for a gift for a crocheter, there is a chance they already have a set of yarn hooks, but do they have these Clover Amour Crochet Hooks? These crochet hooks are my favorite!. Before I used these crochet hooks, I thought a crochet hook is a crochet hook, is a crochet hook.

However, the way that the yarn just glides off these hooks makes my crochet motion just so much smoother. I am crocheting faster and my stitches look more even because my yarn is not getting caught on my hook. I can't say enough about these fantastic hooks! Buy it on Amazon and/or WeCrochet.
