5 Reasons Crocheters Should Check out This Gift Guide (& a Giveaway)
‘Tis the season to be inundated with gift guides, which are handy but not necessarily great for crafters. If you’re struggling to find the perfect gift for the crocheter in your life, Interweave has you covered! Together with a few of our partners, we’ve assembled a list of great gifts for crocheters. And if you enter our Great Holiday Giveaway, you could win one of these fabulous items for yourself! Peruse this list for gifty inspiration, then be sure to enter—you don’t want to miss out on these prizes.
1. ChiaoGoo Hooks and Notecards
Have a friend, family member, or coworker who wants to learn to crochet? Gift them this great hook set to start them on their crochet journey! With four standard crochet hooks, two Tunisian flexible hooks, and one circular hook, this set gives beginners a solid foundation on which to grow their hook collection. And if you’re feeling a little selfish, gift them the standard hooks and keep the Tunisian and circular hooks for yourself. After all, a newbie isn’t going to want to try Tunisian right away!
2. Qiviut Cap Kit
This cap kit, with its unique qiviut (musk ox) yarn and fantastic selection of patterns, is for the special crafter in your life. It’s produced by the Oomingmak Musk Ox Producers’ Co-op, a collection of about 250 Native women who live in remote coastal villages in Alaska, and contains 3 hat patterns, 2 headband patterns, and 1 skein of bulky qiviut yarn (enough to make one of the patterns). To be honest, I wouldn’t gift this—it’s so great I’d keep it for myself!
3. Red Heart Chic Sheep Yarn
Grow your friend’s stash with some fantastic new yarn. Developed by star crocheter Marly Bird, this supersoft 100% merino wool yarn is perfect for accessories, garments, and home décor items. It comes in 24 gorgeous colors, so pick your friend’s favorites and let her imagination do the rest. Or pick YOUR favorite colors, throw in a pattern you love, and hope she’ll get the hint!
4. Skacel Stitch Marker Charm Bracelet
This darling and functional bracelet is perfect for your crochet friend who loves a little whimsy—or maybe your friend who constantly loses her stitch markers! This bracelet lets her keep her markers close while she’s stitching and gives her a cute accessory to wear while she’s out and about. Buy one for a friend, then enter to win one for yourself so you can be bracelet buddies. It’s a win-win!
5. We Are Knitters
This year, give the hard-to-buy-for crocheter in your life something she’ll truly love and use: a $50 gift card to We Are Knitters. The name of the shop is all about knitting, but don’t let that fool you—there are plenty of kits and crafty supplies for the crocheter with a modern, fashion-forward aesthetic. Sadly for me, I’m not allowed to enter our giveaway, but I’d love to win this one—the site has some SUPER sassy bikini kits I’d like to try!
