Practical Gifts That Crocheters May Not Get Themselves
These items are useful but not necessary. So many crocheters may get by for years without owning them. Yet, they can be so much fun to use and useful too. If your loved one is really into crochet, these are some items that they may truly love and say why did I wait so long to get these.
A Yarn Swift is a great gift for a crocheter who likes to buy yarns that come in unwound skeins. The swift allows the crocheter to wind the skein quickly and easily. Combined with a ball winder, it's easy to create center-pull yarn cakes from unwound skeins of yarn. A wooden swift is nice because it is sturdy and durable. It attaches with the bottom clamp to a table.
Yarn Ball Winder
A ball winder is super useful combined with a swift or on its own. With the swift you can use it to wind up a hank of yarn quickly. It's also great for taking yarn and turning it into center pull cakes.
Clover 3672 Amour Crochet Hook Set
A great set of ergonomic crochet hooks can be a blessing. I went for years using regular metal hooks. Then, I both got older and started crocheting even more. This hook set is a little more on the pricey side, but they are my absolute favorite ergonomic crochet hooks.
Complete Crochet Course Book
This book is my favorite all around reference on crochet. It includes clear step by step photo tutorials and covers everything from getting started through finishing.
You might think of a digital scale as being something for the kitchen. They are also super useful for crocheters! This is the scale we have. We use it both in the kitchen and in the craft room. Adjusting the units to grams allows me to get very precise measurements of the weight of yarn. This can be used to measure the weight of swatch or partial project to determine how much yarn has been used. Or you can measure your remaining yarn in a skein or ball to determine how much yarn you have remaining.
Yarn bowls are both useful and decorative. I love displaying mine on a shelf when I'm not using it. They are great for yarn that is wound into balls so that the yarn stays put while you work on your project.
Yarn Storage Organizer
A yarn storage organizer with inner compartments and outer pockets is perfect for the organized crocheter! While a great tote like this, you can keep everything in one portable container.
