Top Crochet Lovers Gift Ideas

I began to crochet when my eldest daughter was just a baby, and she’s now in her 50s. After all those years of crochet experience, I feel it’s only right to put out a page of top crochet lovers gift ideas, for those who are stuck for what to buy for a crocheter.  I picked out several suggestions an avid crocheter would love and I hope you find that perfect gift you’re searching for right here.

There’s More To Crocheting Than Yarn

It’s true you can’t crochet without yarn, thread or some medium, but there are so many other gifts you can find for someone who crochets. I’ll take you through a few of the most requested ones and tell you what they do and why they’re a great gift. But let’s begin with the subject of yarn. There are so many different colors and that is a personal preference of the crocheter. But there are different types of yarn fiber; 100% cotton, acrylic, wool, mohair, cashmere, soy, bamboo, etc. Yarn choice is very a personal thing. Unless you know exactly the kind, color and amount of yarn the person wants, it’s probably not a good thing to buy for a gift. However it you’re really stuck on the colors in the hat at the beginning of this page, here’s where to find them.

Yarn Drums – A “Must Have” Aid For A Crocheter

This is an invaluable aid for the crocheter. Yarn Drums and yarn totes are wonderful inventions to keep yarn clean, neat and handy. Perfect for those who crochet while traveling. Yarn is available to use while still inside the drum, and never pulls out suddenly. No more paper bags or plastic totes needed to carry your yarn, getting them all tangled together. This is a gift any crocheter would love to receive. They come in raspberry, periwinkle and pink, so one of those colors is bound to please.

Soft Touch Hooks, Easy On The Hands

If a person loves crocheting and their hands have arthritis, it can become too painful to continue. Many people stop pursuing this pleasurable pastime because of the pain. Here’s a set of hooks that make it easier for people with this condition. I know, because I have arthritis in four of my fingers, and when gripping something like a crochet needle, I just want to quit to get relief. But these hooks were designed with an easier grip than others. So if you know someone who has problems or who has quit crocheting because of the pain, these are just the thing! I show you two different types of easy-on-the-hands hooks.

Some people have a preference for a certain brand crochet needles. There are two top brands in crochet hooks, Boye and Susan Bates. I’ve given you links to both of those. Your best bet before making a choice would be to do a bit of discreet snooping into what is currently being used by the person for which you’re buying the gift.  The Boye collection of hooks are shown first, then the Susan Bates.

Boye Electric Yarn Winder Keeps Yarn Neat

I own this yarn winder and believe me, it has saved my bacon a few times, when I needed just a little of a color for something I’m crocheting. I crochet teddy bears for the babies in my family, along with a matching coverlet. When crocheting the bears, I need just a tad of red for the heart that I crochet and sew onto their little bodies. This is to let my grands know Granny loves them with all her heart. When I’ve used most of a skein, it doesn’t stay put in the shape it came in, but tends to get all tangled up with other yarns. I prevent that from happening just by using this electric winder. It works like magic and keeps my yarn neat and organized. Another bonus is it also winds the yarn so that it pulls from the center, just like when I first bought it! Love this thing!


Simplicity Boye Electric Yarn Ball Winder

I’ve heard from a few of my crochet friends that they’d rather use a hand operated yarn winder, so for those who prefer, here’s another way to wind that extra yarn left over from projects. It will still keep your yarn from tangling and help you to be able to use those small leftover pieces later.

Below are a few more items a crocheter might like. Be sure before you buy, that your crocheter does not already have these things. Of course if you’re buying for yourself, there’s no problem!

  1. I could have used one of those yarn winders yesterday, Nancy, when my supposedly pull-out skein did NOT pull out and became hopelessly tangled. Took me ‘forever’ to untangle it and rewind it into a ball! Very helpful accessories here for us crochet crafters!
