News update, knitting isn't only for old people. On the contrary, it's a great way to express your creative side and relax your mind while making something useful at any age.
If you're a hardcore knitter, you're probably aware of the amount of knitting supplies and gear available for purchase. And knitters can never have enough needles or yarn.
However, if you're not a knitter but know someone passionate about knitting and you're looking for the best gift for knitters, you've come to the right place.
I will share the best gift ideas for knitters. No matter the occasion, knitters appreciate knitting supplies as a gift. Without further ado, let's find something for your fellow knitter!
A good old yarn
The most basic but still useful gift you can buy a knitter is a good old yarn. Whether you go for cashmere or wool, a cool novelty yarn to complete a large project is always appreciated.
You can also get your gift back in the shape of a knit scarf or some other cool thing.
Handmade knitting kit
If you're a knitter buying for another passionate knitter, a cool idea is to create a knitting kit. It's simply a knitting project in a pack.
Select a book with a pattern you find cool or pick a pattern you find on the internet and purchase all the supplies necessary to make it.
Make sure to include notions, needles, yarn, and so on. Print out the cool pattern or throw a copy of the book and put it all in a stylish bag.
You can choose from different options when it comes to knitting bags. It seems like every knitter can use another knitting bag when the old ones get stocked with uncompleted projects.
A knitting bag is something that will be appreciated by any knitter. A knitting purse or backpack is ideal for on-the-go individuals who travel and don't mind knitting anywhere, anytime.
It's the perfect gift for knitters who need to have space for all their supplies in the same backpack, purse or bag. If you're a knitter as well, you can even create a homemade knitting bag.
Another special gift for the passionate knitter in your life is interchangeable needles. They perform like a dream. You can choose from different brands.
If you wonder what to buy a knitter who seems to have everything, consider buying a yarn swift.
It's helpful and handy equipment that makes winding a ball from a skein of yarn simpler. The swift acts as your hands while you wind the yarn into a ball with the help of this tool.
The ideal gift that goes along with a yarn swift is this one. The ball winder makes fast work of getting the yarn off the swift and into the ball.
If you want to buy more than one gift for your crafty friend, a winder and swift make a great combo. It's a very thoughtful and helpful gift.
Knitting needle case
This is the perfect gift for knitters because they always seem to have more needles than they have space to keep them. It's a simple but thoughtful gift.
It's made of heavy-duty durable nylon and semi-flexible well-cushioned covers. They offer protection for knitting items. It will keep everything nicely organized.
101 Stitches to Knit
A stitch dictionary is something every knitter can use. This set of cards makes the perfect option because you can choose a stitch pattern to work from.
Then, simply carry that single card around instead of a complete book. It's ideal for individuals who tend to knit on the go, anywhere, anytime.
Lace knitting to go
This box includes 25 cards with lace knitting designs that can be the fundament for lacy knitting projects. They include written charts and instructions.
I recommend this gift because it's ideal for crafters who aren't very comfortable with chart reading. It's a handy gift that any knitter would appreciate.
This is the ultimate knitting book from the most popular knitting magazine. It was first published in 1989 but the new version includes 65 extra pages with new information.
This book includes 1,600 colour photos and completely new parts with designs and techniques that can help your fellow knitter boost their skills and make better projects!
Custom made by tags
Custom satin sewing tags are the ideal finishing touch for homemade quilting, knitting, sewing or craft projects. They come in different designs, lettering styles, colours and icons.
This gift allows you to customize the labels and express your creative side. They're perfect for both small or new businesses, as they're available to buy in small numbers.
If you want to surprise your favourite knitter with a sidekick, buy them a yarn bowl. Pick a yarn bowl with a smooth finish to allow the yearn to glide nicely via the specially made deep swirl.
Make sure that your favourite knitter forgets all about tangling or catching. You can pick a handcrafted yarn bowl that's lightweight and portable. It's not a unique gift but it's super useful.
