The Best Gifts for Crocheters

Find the perfect gifts for crocheters with this handy list!

Wondering what gifts to buy a crocheter in your life? Well, you’re in the right place! Crocheters love all things yarn, hooks, and yarny accessories but it can be tricky finding the right gifts for them. This guide has lots of ideas to find the perfect gifts for crocheters or to add some new yarn or hooks to your own stash – I’m not judging!

The key to getting an amazing gift for a crochet lover is to get them something special. You might be thinking – well DUH! Of course I’m going to get them something special, it’s a gift. BUT it’s very easy to get a crocheter a non-special crochet related gift, especially if you aren’t a yarn enthusiast yourself. Getting a crocheter yarn is no easy feat when their yarn stash could fill the Grand Canyon. But, for example, if you get them special yarn – think hand-dyed, unique fibers, fun color packs – they are sure to love you for it!

Take a look through the categories below to find the perfect crocheter present!

YARN

A crocheter can never have too much yarn, believe me! But as I mentioned before, it needs to be special to please the crocheter in your life. Stay away from big craft stores and stick with hand-dyed yarn, unique fibers like alpaca or cashmere, indie yarn dyers, or fun color kits.

Crochet hooks

Like yarn, hooks can be very personal to each crocheter. For gifting crochet hooks, look for high-quality hooks and hook sets. If you’re just buying a couple hooks as gifts, get size C (2.75 mm) or size D (3.25 mm) hooks for amigurumi crocheters and size G (4 mm) or size H (5 mm) for general crocheters.

  1. Furls Odyssey Crochet Hook – So many crocheters SWEAR by Furls hooks. These hooks are an investment, but they are supposed to be the most comfortable hook to crochet with. Check out the benefits of a Furls hook here. While creating this gift guide, I treated myself to a Furls hook, so I’ll report back with how I like it!
