Clover Soft Touch Crochet Hooks

Soft Touch crochet hooks are designed with cushy, large handles. They are available in both steel and regular sizes. Clover also makes organizers that are designed to hold these hooks.

Soft Touch hooks have received significant numbers of positive reviews from other crocheters. You can read some reviews at the following URLs:

Downsides:

  • Compared to most standard aluminum and steel crochet hooks, these are expensive.
  • Some people mentioned that these hooks are prone to breaking, but can be repaired with glue.
  • The hooks aren't color coded; you have to look at each one to see its size.

Clover Reflections Crochet Hooks

Clover Reflections hooks are also ergonomic. They look a bit different from the Soft Touch hooks; the Reflections hooks are colorful, with each hook size being a different color. This is helpful if you don't want to have to look at each hook to know which size you're grabbing.
