Do you or someone you know love to crochet? Maybe a friend or a family member. These are the 15 ultimate gift ideas for people who crochet.
Crochet is an amazing fiber art that turns yarn into beautiful and thoughtful creations. It boasts beautiful and different colors of yarn made from a variety of different mediums – wool, cotton, acrylic, alpaca, mohair, and others. These yarns are crocheted together to create hats, wall hangings, sweaters, stuffed animals, shawls, washcloths, and hundreds more designs.
As an avid crocheter, I have the knowledge and experience to share with you a list of the best gifts to give to a fellow crocheter. One of the most obvious gifts to give would be yarn, but this can be tricky. Yarn choice is personal and usually project-specific. Chances are we have too big of a yarn stash as it is. But you should ask for a wish list! There might be a special hand-dyed wool yarn that we have been coveting.
Crochet provides so much more than handmade gifts, it is a great activity for soothing your soul. A simple hook and yarn can alleviate stress, calm fidgety hands, and improve hand-eye coordination. Crocheting is also so much fun! The following is a list of ultimate gifts to give your crochet lover.
Here Is The 15 Ultimate Crochet Gift List
- Gift Cards
- Yarn Bowls
- Stitch Markers
- Crochet Hooks
- Project Bags
- Sharp Scissors
- Yarn Needles
- Measuring Tape
- Specialty Hooks
- Blocking Squares
- Yarn Rings
- Crochet Hook Holder
A gift card or gift certificate is a very useful gift. Crocheters love to peruse the yarn store just looking to start a fun project. With a gift card, you are giving them the freedom to buy whatever they truly want or need. Maybe they need a new hook, a pattern book with new techniques, or saving up for something costly, whatever the case may be. Crocheters love to buy yarn!
Going to the craft store with a gift card is a real treat, and is a great idea for a gift. Gift cards and gift certificates are the ideal last-minute crochet gift ideas.
Gift Cards to: JoAnne Fabrics, Michaels, Walmart, Hobby Lobby, or your Local Yarn Shop.
Yarn bowls – now these make amazing gifts. They hold a ball of yarn and the end is fed through a hole in the side. This keeps the cats and the yarn snarls at bay. No more searching under the couch for that rolling yarn ball. Instead, it is nice and neat right next to you.
They come in all different shapes and colors from beautifully carved and polished wooden bowls to painted ceramic vessels, There are even some that are silly faces and the yarn is fed through the nostril (haha – my mom would like those). You can pick just the right size and characteristics to make a yarn bowl the perfect gift idea.

Every crocheter knows the importance of stitch markers. They are essential for holding your place, keeping row counts, ensuring straight rows, and marking certain stitches. In other words, they are always needed. The small plastic stitch markers are my favorite in terms of affordability and ergonomics. They are lightweight and easy to use, plus you get a lot in the package which is great because they get lost easily.
There are all different colors and styles which make these fun gift ideas. There are cute ones with charms, metal clips, round ones that don’t close, fancy safety pin ones, and many others. You can choose any variety you want to give. Stitch markers are great practical gifts, especially for beginners.

Ok, let’s talk about crochet hooks. Crochet hooks range in size from very small (think making lace) to very large (big blankets or rugs) and all sizes in between. Hooks are the ultimate gift ideas for people who crochet.
Most dedicated crocheters have standard-sized hook sets but there are some sets that stand out above the rest. The clover amour crochet hooks are among the best. They have ergonomic handles and a smooth metal finish on the end which gives a wonderful glide through the yarn. They cost more than your average hook sets but they are worth every penny.
Gifting crochet hooks is a fantastic gift for your favorite crocheter. This is a chance to give some unique gifts – there are so many neat ones to choose from. Or if you are looking for other fun hooks – try a 12mm, 15mm, or 19mm one. They are huge! You can use them to make rugs or really drapey items. And it never hurts to give the most used size – the classic 5mm.
Ask your crochet enthusiast if they have a wish list. Crochet hooks make some of the best gift ideas – the more the merrier.

Project bags (or yarn bags) come in all sizes, from small projects to huge yarn storage, and everything in between. Select your crocheter’s favorite color and fill one with some of the other crochet items in this article. Everyone loves bags, they keep things neat and put together.
Give a smaller zip pouch for hooks, stitch markers, needles, and scissors. Make sure it is at least 8 to 10 inches long to hold the hooks. There are some really pretty make-up bags that can double as this!
A project bag is a thoughtful gift. Most crocheters have multiple projects going at a time any type of organization makes a great addition to any crafter’s life.

Head on down to your local yarn shop and see what pattern books or magazines they have available. A subscription to a fiber arts magazine would be an awesome gift – did you know you can do online subscriptions too?! Another great option would be a good crochet book – this is a great list of books.
Check out the number one best-seller on Amazon…..
A lot of crocheters use video tutorials to learn how to make certain designs. Some of those vloggers sell their patterns in written form from their websites- so another great option is to give cash or a visa gift card. Or how about enrolling them in the yarn of the month club?

It goes without saying that a good pair of sharp scissors is essential to every crocheter. There are some beautifully crafted vintage styles and some with just a simple design. I’ve had this pair for many years and they are lovely.
It’s essential to have scissors that stay sharp for a long time and feel good in your hand. Scissors are another item that you can’t have too many of. Seems like someone is always walking off with them. Select smaller ones for quick projects and regular-sized ones for the rest – Fiskars makes an amazing line of scissors!

Yarn Needles and Measuring Tape
Another perfect crochet gift idea would be yarn needles and measuring tape. Yarn needles come in a few different materials – plastic, metal, and a combination of both. They all work well for different types of yarn. Ones with a larger eye work great for bulky yarn while slender needles are great for smaller stitches. You really can’t go wrong giving these as a gift- add a needle threader too!
Measuring tape is also a great addition to the crocheter’s arsenal. It is a great way to measure out all of the different sizes of the crochet projects; how long to make the arms on a sweater or how many inches around to fit your ankle in sock making. There are lots of fun and small retractable measuring tapes that would make really fun gifts.

This is a chance to give some unique gifts – there are so many neat ones to choose from. Check out the wood furls, or ones with custom clay handles, maybe some ergonomic crochet hooks – but choose a size that is used more often.
If only gifting one – make it 5mm, 5.5mm, 6mm, or 6.5mm. Those sizes are used frequently. There are plenty of small businesses to check out – Etsy for one has a lot of beautifully crafted crochet hooks.
Tunisian crochet hooks would also make an extra special gift. They are longer and are used to create some really interesting stitches.

Another unexpected gift would be blocking squares and boards. Some yarn projects require a form of stretching to make them lay the way they need to. Blocking squares (or mats) can be really useful. Storage bins and storage bags are also wonderful gifts. Every crafter can appreciate a bit of home organization.

Yarn rings are a fun and unique gift. You place them on your finger and feed the yarn through it which helps keep your tension more even. They come in lots of styles from plain to extravagant.

Crochet Hook Holder
A make-up brush holder makes a great crochet hook holder. They keep them all contained in one safe spot. Easy for on the go (I like to crochet in the car sometimes) and they come in so many exciting patterns. The lid and base come apart and can be used separately or they snap together. I have the galaxy print one – very cool.
