Best Gifts for Crocheters
Let’s dive right in…
Best Crochet Hooks
Hands down, these Clover Armour Crochet Hooks are my absolute favorite hooks to use. I will search all over house for them rather than use one of my older, metal hooks. The Clover Hooks are ergonomic and perfect. They feel great in your hand while you’re crocheting. Be careful not to get a knock-off brand. They are NOT the same thing…
I also have purchased larger sizes in this brand when I’m using chunkier yarn. You can get a whole set of the largest size hooks right here. Personally if my husband surprised me with the entire set, I would feel like I went to crochet heaven. Just saying.
Other Crochet Tools You Need
A lot of crocheters really recommend this nifty thread cutter pendant. You can carry it in a pocket or string it on a necklace. It’s beautiful and functional. This is on my list of things to buy. (Hubs.. if you’re reading this, it would make an awesome stocking stuffer…)
I’m so glad I tried out and invested in stitch markers. I use mine for amigurumi to mark the end of a row but it’s also amazing for holding pieces together before sewing. These locking stitch markers are the best.
Tape Measure or Ruler
A tape measure or small ruler is an essential tool. I like this tape measure the best because it is portable, flexible and easy to find in my bag. Honestly it would make me so happy to have a few of these so I could keep one in my purse and one in a few places around the house. You never know when a tape measure would come in handy.
This tool for measuring gauge is amazing. It’s important to match your gauge to the gauge of the designer and this tool does the job perfectly!
Tapestry or Yarn Needles
Needles for Crochet
My nieces love using these finishing needles. They are so easy to use and great for kids. But I know many adults who love them too.
I’m pretty much in love with this crochet hook case so of course, it has to make my gift ideas for crocheters list. It comes in other colors too, in case the polka dots aren’t your thing. I have multiple sets of hooks and this case holds all my essentials including my Clover Armour Crochet Hooks.
I also have a wooden caddy for holding my hooks near my ‘in home’ crochet area (aka my recliner). Check out the Crochet Workstation by Chetnanigans on Etsy. Sigh. They have several different models, so be sure to browse around in their shop for one that fits your space and needs. Seriously… this is a spoil me please gift.
Even More Crochet Gifts
These blocking mats are one of those nice to have things that you put off getting, but love once you finally purchase them. I got them last year and just love them. To learn how to use them, check out this post here.
I love these Pom Pom makers. Perfect pom poms fast. What’s not to love about that?
Crochet Books I’ve Known And Loved
I’m a little bit of a crochet book hoarder. But if I was forced to pick my favorite crochet book, this one would be it. It covers all the basics and some advanced techniques too.
This one is a close second. Just very well done.
Ever wonder how to crochet a perfect border? Then Around the Corner Crochet Border by Edie Eckman is for you. Edie Eckman is amazing and you can’t go wrong with any of her books. I think I own them all. You might like this one or this one.
