What Hooks do I use?

Hey All! I wanted to share a question that I get asked a lot.  “What Crochet Hooks do I use?”  Well I use many of them Boye Brand was what I started out with many years ago along with Susan Bates. But I have found a New Brand “Clover”.  I was looking for something with a little more comfort as I do crochet A LOT!  I tried Clover Soft Touch it was comfy BUT I fell in LOVE with Clover “Amour” – These are my all time FAVORITE Hooks!  If you watch my videos I use them ALL the time! I love the soft grip and I do crochet much longer with them. I have one more set to collect but I’ve got just about ALL of them!  Below I’m adding the ones that I do have (Amazon Affiliate)

If you are looking for something new and crochet a lot TRY them – I tried the “J” Hook first then ordered my set!   You won’t be disappointed!  I’ve got more goodies to share with you all a little later as things have slowed down here. I plan on Blogging more and doing more videos in 2018!

As always thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

Time to get your Jolly on….

How adorable are these Santa Hats?  Super FUN and Perfect for the Holidays!  That’s right it’s that time to get your Jolly on!

This pattern was shared on a Facebook Group by Sarah Zimmerman from Repeat Crafter Me.  You can find the pattern HERE.

UPDATED: I used Clover Amour L Hook – (Amazon Affiliate Link)
I did modify it to fit a Teen/Adult hat. Here is what I did -With the L Hook I started with a chain of 44 and that measured 20″ –  I switched to M Hook when it changes to Red. After round 3. Then after 4th round it says to Repeat it 4 more times – I ended up doing 8 more times for Adult size. Giving me a total of 12 rows –
Then when we get to the Shape top: This is what I did (You’ll see in the pattern is says next rnd: I changed it up)
R1 – ch1 *(Sc2tog), sc in next 20, repeat* once, join, ch 1 (42)
R2-3 – sc in each around, join, ch 1 – (41)
R4 – (sc in next 5, sc2tog), repeat () around, join, ch1 (36)
R5-6 – sc in each around, join, ch 1 – (36)
R7 – (sc in next 4, sc2tog), repeat () around, join, ch1 (30)
R8-9 – sc in each around, join, ch 1 – (30)
R10 – (sc in next 4, sc2tog), repeat () around, join, ch1 (25)
R11-12 – sc in each around, join, ch 1 – (25)
R13 – (sc in next 4, sc2tog), repeat () around, join, ch1 (20)
R14-15 – sc in each around, join, ch 1 – (20)
R16 – (sc in next 4, sc2tog), repeat () around, join, ch1 (16)
R17-18 – sc in each around, join, ch 1 – (16)
R19 – (sc in next 4, sc2tog), repeat () around, join, ch1 (12)
R20-21 – sc in each around, join, ch 1 – (12)
R22 –  (sc in next 4, sc2tog), repeat () around, join, ch1 (10)
R 23-32 – sc in each around (10) From here you’ll follow the pattern Even though you’ll have 20 stitches instead of 16. It will still work out fine!
