Gift Suggestions For Crocheters

Gifts for Crochet Addicts

Crochet is a popular and relaxing hobby. Crocheters find its gentle rhythm soothing, and more than just being a relaxing pastime it is productive. Finding gifts that crocheters will enjoy and use is not difficult, even if you know little about crochet.

When thinking about a crochet gift for your crocheter, you should first know whether s/he crochets with yarn/wool or thread/cotton. Thread crocheters use tiny, very fine, crochet hooks and yarn crocheters use larger, thicker hooks.

Crocheters always love to build up their stash, that is their yarn or thread reserve. If you want to give your crocheter a real treat, and can afford to do so, buy some speciality yarn or thread. However, crocheters are always grateful for yarn/thread supplies, especially those who crochet a great deal, charity. Car boot sales, charity or thrift shops often have unused yarn and thread for sale.

Crocheters need much more than one hook, crochet hooks come in different sizes for different patterns. Many crocheters would love a crochet hook set. These are complete sets of hooks in a case. Complete crochet hooks sets contain hooks for both yarn and thread. Your crocheter may want a set of very large (yarn) crochet hooks or hooks made from specialist materials, such as bamboo or wood.

Most crocheters collect crochet patterns and enjoy getting unusual patterns. Vintage crochet patterns are popular with crocheters, especially with thread crocheters. You can buy these on well-known auction sites.

Crocheters also enjoy stitch or technique books, these books show crocheters how to make intricate patterns and enhance their crochet knowledge. You can buy these online, or from large bookshops.

A gift token, or voucher, for your crocheter’s local yarn or craft shop will allow him or her to choose what s/he wants and needs. A crochet magazine subscription will keep your crocheter up to date with all the crochet news. Tickets for needlecraft exhibitions or shows would be another great gift idea.

Useful gifts that might not come immediately to mind

Crocheters often carry their ongoing crochet projects around with them and they need suitable bags for this purpose. Roomy bags with pockets suitable for holding a pattern, or spare hooks, and other implements, are great for this purpose. A large packet of assorted safety pins would make a useful small gift for a crocheter. Safety pins are so useful, when crocheting, to hold stitches open when shaping work, to mark shaping points, row ends, and for numerous other purposes. Other small gifts could include stitch counters, small scissors, plastic see-through envelopes to protect patterns, or box folders, for keeping patterns tidy and organized.

Other suitable gifts could include a chest, ottoman, or box that will look good in the living room, in which a crocheter could keep his, or her, current project, when not working on it. A lamp, with a good light, for crocheting in the evening, would make a very thoughtful gift.
