2020 Knitting Gift Guide

Knitters and crocheters are simultaneously the easiest and hardest people to shop for. Yarn and pattern books may seem like no-brainer gifts, but they’re not foolproof. Did you buy enough or even the right yarn for a project? Are the patterns in the book something they know-how to make?

This year, give your favorite wool-enthusiast a fiber-related gift that will compliment their making in a fun and unique way. Discover these gifts that any maker will love to gift or receive in our 2020 Knitting Gift Guide.

Ruler Blanket by Crossover Industries -$40

Fashion and function collide in this blanket from Crossroad Industries. The 50×62” blanket is large enough to keep you warm when you settle into work on your WIP, while the blanket’s pattern will help ensure that your gauge or length is on point. You see, the plaid is actually a 1/4” ruler grid. Forget standing up to find a tape measure when you need it – your blanket has you covered. Literally.

Foldable Clipboard Pattern Holder – $26

Printed patterns can take a beating inside a project bag. They get folded, crumbled, or even lost. Which is why we don’t start a project without a foldable clipboard. When folded, the metal clipboard fits easily into a purse or project bag. When it’s time to knit or crochet, choose to lay the clipboard flat or open it at an angle to prop up your pattern. It makes a reliable writing surface for taking notes and is a great place to house all of your yarny stickers. Note: while you’ll notice that this clipboard was designed for our hardworking nurses, the medical stickers easily peel off the front and back to reveal a non-sticky, plain colored clipboard.

Baby Llama Planter – $20

This ceramic planter from Allen Design Studio takes cute to a whole new level. While intended to hold blossoming buds, the llama’s neck makes it a perfect holder for your straight and DPN needles. No longer do you have to hide your needles in a box – now they can sit pretty on any shelf or table top in your house.
