Do you have a Knitter on your gift list? What about a Crocheter? Here is a little help! Best Gifts for Knitters and Gift Ideas for Crocheters!
I am a closet Yarn Lover, so coming up with the Best Gifts for Knitters and Gift Ideas for Crocheters list was easy.
Not many people know I crochet, much less that I hoard yarn. Like I said, I am a Yarn Lover
I have lots and lots of yarn ready to be made into something beautiful….someday.
I have yarn skeins that I bought on sale or someone gave me. But they are the “usual” kinds of yarn, the kind you make into afghans or scarves with. There is nothing wrong with those at all.
To make a scarf you would probably use one or two skeins of yarn. But if you want to make an afghan it takes 10 skeins or more, depending on the pattern you choose. So those high dollars yarns can get expensive fast.
I did pretty good with the crocheting and embroidering, but not so good with the knitting. I was sloppy and you can’t be sloppy when knitting. If you are a knitter, you know what I mean.
Over the years I have mastered crocheting and have learned that there are fun accessories that will make the process of crocheting even more fun. Most of these accessories can be for the knitter or crocheter.
One day my 3 year old grandson came to stay the day. While he play cars and trucks, I sat watching him while crocheting. Soon he snuggled up next to me to see what I was doing. Then he wanted to try. I gave him a sample piece I had worked on and let him choose his needle, of course, he chose 2 needles. Here is a short video of his first try at crocheting.
Best Gifts for Knitters and Gift Ideas for Crocheters
Knitters or Yarn Lovers Cutter Pendant
I am completely in love with the Clover Yarn Cutter Pendant.
It’s both practical and pretty!
I am always losing my scissors, so this is perfect for me.
I can either wear it as a pendant necklace or put it on top of a spool of thread to hold it.
There are several different designs to choose from and they sell some in multiple packs. So if you have several yarn lovers on your list, this is perfect.
This is a great idea whether you love crocheting, knitting, embroidering or even sewing.
There is a rotary cutting blade inside the pendant, so all you have to do is run the yarn along side the blade and it cuts the yarn.
I love the fact that I can’t cut myself and my grand kids can’t come along and find my scissors and cut something they shouldn’t be cutting.
This is a great gift for any yarn lover.
The “Elite” Crochet Hook Organizer Workstation
The Elite Crochet Hook Organizer Workstation is a crochet lovers dream. This really is the best gifts for crocheters. They try to be organized, but it is so hard with all the needles and such.
I get tired of searching for my hooks and my scissors and things.
This keeps them all in one place and they will be there when I am ready to use them.
It is handmade out of Red Oak Hardwood and oil-rubbed finish to enhance the wood grain. It is made in a little wood shop in Midlothian, Virginia.
The maker of this beautiful piece will also send you the free Chetnanigans accessory package — including 5.25″ scissors, a 60″ retractable measuring tape, a seam ripper, a 7 cm stainless steel yarn needle, and 10 stitch markers!
We all can use new ones of those. I use those a lot when I crochet.
Maple Knitting Needle Caddy
We haven’t left the knitters out when it comes to organization.
This Maple Knitting Needle Caddy is the perfect gift idea for knitters.
This Knitting Caddy is made out of hand selected Exhibition Grade Birdseye Maple and is designed to hold knitting needles, pencils, scissors and other things like that.
It has (4) 1/2″ dia. holes, and (20) 1 1/8″ x 1/2″ elliptical holes.
It also features a shallow dish in the center of the caddy to hold small items such as stitch markers or tape measures.
This caddy features rubber feet on the base, which protects the surface it stands on and prevents it from sliding around while in use.
Approx size: 5″ tall x 6.5″ wide x 9″ long.
None of these Caddy’s are stained. They come with a clear Lacquer finish and just need the occasional dusting for upkeep.
Do you have a knitter on your gift list that would love this? Me too!
Hand-turned Cocobolo Crochet Hook
This is a great gift idea for crochets because we don’t usually indulge in hooks like we do in yarn.
These crochet hooks are so beautiful and so delicate, any crocheter would love to have them.
Each hand-turned Cocobolo Crochet Hook is beautiful and comfortable to use.
These are handmade in Emporia, Kansas out of Cocobolo wood that grows in Mexico and Central America.
These hooks aren’t as long as a traditional crochet hooks. They are only 5.5 inches long. They are created to fit in your hand comfortably.
I get hand cramps from holding my needle and I think this might help. It will allow my hand to relax a bit more while I am creating each stitch.
They will make a personal inscription on each hook for an additional $5. This would make the best gift for any yarn lover.
Because these are handmade, allow 2-3 weeks for delivery.
Knitting or Crocheting Stitch Markers from Etsy
Knitting and Crocheting both need stitch markers to keep track of places on your project. Either where you began or left off or special areas to skip. It is extremely difficult to find your place without stitch markers and Etsy.com just happens to have some adorable ones that are a perfect gift idea. These are also inexpensive. There are way too many to choose from to put them all here. Just hop on over to Etsy.com to check them out.
Knitting and Crochet Needles with a Light
As I have said, I crochet and not knit. But there are times I am in a dark room and crocheting and I need to count my stitches.
These light up hooks are perfect for that. It says the whole hook or needle lights up.
Can you imagine how handy that would be???
Crochet Afghan Kits
I recently bought the Water Lilies Reflection kit, which I never do. But I saw this and fell in love with the look. I am learning a new stitch to make this afghan, but that’s OK, I love learning new stitches. It will be a challenge. I have already had to call the company once to ask a question about the pattern. They have a great customer service department that knows all the patterns and was able to help me understand what I was doing wrong. I am having fun with it.
If you have someone that is a yarn lover that may enjoy a afghan kit, look here for one you think she will love. The kits come with all the yarn and instructions. Everything you need to complete the project.

Handmade Yarn Bowl with Lots of Personality
These Yarn Bowls made me laugh out loud.
What great faces they have and how handy they would be to have around when you are crocheting.
Each Yarn Bowl is made to order, so don’t expect it in the mail next week. She hand crafts each one of these out of her studio in Hubbell, NE (population…52).
You can tell her exactly what you want or she can come up with a design just for you.
The thread can come out of the mouth or the nose, it is just a fun way of holding your yarn for you so it doesn’t get tangled or roll across the floor and the cat get it.
I love this idea too. What a great idea for a yarn lovers gift.

Circle With A Twist Shawl Pin
I have always wanted a Shawl Pin but have never bought one for myself.
I wear my handmade shawls all winter long and it does irritate me that I am always fighting to keep them closed when I am doing anything besides sitting down.
Shawl Pins are the perfect solution for my problem.
There are so many to choose from, I just happened to really like this one.
It is handmade, so you know it will be a nice quality and look nice.
It ships from Philomath, Oregon and they don’t say anything about a time line. So maybe they have some on hand ready to ship out to your Yarn Lover for the perfect gift.
Yarn Lovers Puzzles for Rest and Relaxation
I love my yarn, but in the summer it is just too hot to play with it. But I find that a nice Yarn Puzzle isn’t too hot. I have several that are so much fun because they have yarn in them and it excites me for winter to come so I can get started on some projects that I have hidden away in the closet. Do you have a knitter or yarn lover that would be excited to work a summer yarn puzzle? Then this might be the perfect gift idea for them.
iPad Mini Cover for Crochet Lovers
I have an iPad mini that I use to look for new and exciting new patterns. Many of them are downloaded on my iPad. I fell in love with the Crochet Granny Square iPad Mini Case shown here. I find the vintage Granny Square blankets so pretty. As a kid, when my grandmother was making them, I thought they were ugly and old fashioned. I have changed my mind over time.
iPad Mini Cover for Knitting Lovers
Knitting isn’t my thing, but I found some adorable choices in iPad mini covers. Look for the one you can personalize with your loved ones name or initials.

Some times a yarn lover needs to do something else.
Why not read a book about Crochet Mysteries? This sounds like such a fun book.

There is nothing better on a cold night than curling up with a good book while covered in a handmade afghan that you just finished.
Friday Night Knitting Club Novel By Kate Jacobs
Here is a great gift idea for the knitter. A book series that is centered around knitting. Nothing inspires a knitter to knit as much as other productive knitters.
The Knitters Fun Reversible Knitting Project Bag – Perfect for Yarn and Needles
Everyone that crafts with yarn needs a project bag.
I usually take mine to the car shop while my car is getting worked on or while I wait at the beauty shop.
You can find all kinds of time to knit or crochet a few rows when you are waiting.
I truly don’t believe in carrying an ugly project bag.
This one is adorable and it is reversible. It comes with a matching notions bag for your scissors and things like that.
Best Gift Idea Yet
This last weekend we went to Branson Missouri with 3 other couples and their kids. One wife brought out her crocheting and her yarn bag had an item that mine has never had.
Can you see it in the picture? It’s a flask. Now why didn’t I think of that? No wonder she was so calm as her pre-teens ran all over the place. Actually, the kids were all great this weekend.
But her flask got me thinking that this would be a great gift idea for knitters and crocheters. Even if we just use it for tea (tea…sure..right).
Yarn Lover Bags I Created Because They Are Fun
