Essential Tool Ideas & Gifts For People Who Crochet

1. Ergonomic crochet hooks in different sizes – there are many alternatives, I love my Dot Hooks from WeCrochet.

2. High end crochet hook in the right size – companies like Furls Crochet or Ophire Hooks make stunning crochet hooks

3. Clover amour crochet hook set – is a popular choice amongst many crocheters

4. Other handmade hooks – there are plenty to choose from when it comes to materials and different processes used to make them, you can find a wide range on Etsy

5. Light up hooks – these are great for working with dark yarn or for working in the evening

6. Skeins of yarn in their favorite color and yarn weight – this would take a little investigation and might be tricky if you are not a crocheter yourself. However, if you can find out which project they have in their queue to make, you can ask in your local yarn store for advice.

7. New yarn they haven’t tried before – this could be novelty yarns like faux fur yarn, glow in dark yarn or glitter yarn

8. Gradient yarn cakes – these are a great way to combine some of their favorite colors together. The makers of these yarn cakes can blend the colors seamlessly and create a beautiful gradient of colors

9. Hand dyed yarn – I personally love hand dyed yarn and there are so many indie dyers out there creating stunning colorways on various yarn bases. You can find loads of makers on Etsy or search on Instagram for visual inspiration. If you are in US or Canada, check out Tyler over at Arcane Fibre Works too

10. Yarn gift cards – if choosing the right yarn as a gift sends you into a dizzy spell, you can always just opt for gift cards. Many small businesses will be happy to sell you a personalised gift card as well as larger companies like WeCrochet or Lovecrafts.
