Sponsor Spotlight: Clover USA
I was very happy to hear back from Clover USA as a sponsor of the Holiday Stashdown Crochet-a-long. Today, I’m happy to share a roundup of my six “must-have” Clover tool for crocheters. Images are copyright Clover and used with permission.
- #1 Clover Amour Crochet Hooks: I have Clover Amour crochet hooks in my most-used sizes because they are such a pleasure to work with! These hooks are lightweight with a rubber handle to help prevent fatigue. One lucky #HolidayStashdownCAL2015 winner will win an entire set of ten Clover Amour crochet hooks!
- #2 Clover Double-Ended Tunisian Crochet Hooks: I first came across these delightful hooks a few years ago when taking a class with Lily Chin. They are super smooth and very portable. These are great for double-ended crochet, or use a knitting needle point protector on one end to make a great Tunisian crochet hook.
- #3 Clover Pom-Pom Maker: My regular readers know that I have zero talent for making my own pom poms. Really. I’ve tried every tutorial out there and they turn into a shred of yarn. I can fool everyone into thinking I’m a Pom Pom Master with my Clover Pom-Pom Maker. I use the XL, but Clover offers several sizes. You can watch a demo on YouTube, or read the easy-to-follow illustrated instructions on the package.
- #4 Clover Hair Pin Lace Tool: This is by far my favorite hairpin lace loom. (You can read my complete review here.)

- #5 Clover Locking Stitch Markers: I have tried many, many locking stitch markers, and those made by Clover are by far my favorites. I use these for knitting as well as crocheting. You can find read more about how I use them in this post: 5 Reasons to Use Locking Stitch Markers for Crochet.
- #6 Clover Chibi Darning Needles: I am a recent convert to the Chibi darning needles. These very lightweight, coated steel needles come with their own little carrying case, which I can stick into my project bag without worrying about losing a needle or pricking myself.
