Using smaller hooks

I bought a new hook set that has bigger handles, and so far it’s been working out well. I did this in a size 5 hook and I’m making my dress in a 3.25.  I’d still like to try those wood handles but at 35 dollars per hook that’s super expensive.


I like this Red Heart Ombre yarn though, the subtle changes work a lot better than the self striping for certain patterns.
