Rainbow Booties with Repeat Crafter Me

I had the pleasure of trying out the Clover Amour crochet hooks this past week! This was a big deal for me because I’ve been using the same hook for 3 years. But when the Clover hooks arrived in their pretty packaging with 10 brightly colored hooks in a rainbow of colors, I couldn’t wait to get one in my hands and around some yarn!

All Clover products can be found at www.clover-usa.com
The colorful easy grip handles inspired me to make these rainbow baby booties! The first thing I noticed was how light the hooks are plus the shape of the grip fit PERFECTLY in my hand! My hand never cramped or felt tired. Even after crocheting 8 booties! You can easily adjust the size of the booties by using a different size Clover Amour crochet hook. As you see in the picture below, this is the variation in sizes between using the F, H, and J hooks. I was able to get the largest bootie on my daughter who is 18 months. The smaller F size bootie would probably fit a 3 month old. You may also notice that this pattern is an updated and much easier version of my cuffed baby booties pattern.

– Worsted weight yarn. I used Vanna’s Choice in White, Scarlett, Terracotta, Mustard, Fern, and Dusty Purple. Blue is Loops & Threads Impeccable in Aqua.
