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…

This is the BASIC set and you should buy this one first:

This is a SMALLER hook size and is great for doilies or thread work:

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

You need scissors.  They can be cute or practical.

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…)

Stitch Markers

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

Almost always you need tapestry needles to weave in ends or sew pieces together.  These tapestry needles are perfect and I love the case they come in too!

Needles for Crochet

If you’re a crocheter, now and then you will need to sew pieces together and these yarn needles are perfect.  I also like these bent edge needles, especially for sewing amigurumi pieces together.

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.

Finishing needlesI’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 HooksCrochet hook case
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.

  1. Love , love , love this !! I’m drooling over some of these ! I have been crocheting since the early ‘60s . That’s more than 50 years , but who’s counting ? Boy , howdy , has the crochet world changed in those years !! All we had were steel and aluminum hooks and you paid for all your patterns , unless one of your friends was kind enough to write one down and share it with you . Now , unless I really see a pattern I truly love , I seldom pay for a pattern , and I have an assortment of hooks in a variety of materials . Love this future !!

  2. I have been crocheting and knitting all of my life (well over 50+ years), and I continue to find more to love about the fiber arts – especially thanks to wonderful, talented enthusiasts such as yourself who enjoy sharing their talents! I LOVE following your blog and enjoy all of your wonderful patterns and tips! Thank you so very much for sharing!
