Here's What to Buy for the Knitters on Your List

Actions

If you have a knitter on your gift list, don't reach for the yarn! Instead, think outside the skein for gifts that are practical, but beautiful, unexpected but oh-so-necessary.

Double-duty jewelry

Help a knitter out with jewelry they'll gladly wear and use! From needle gauges doubling as rings to statement stitch markers and wearable tape measures, you can't go wrong here.

Pottery power

Knitters appreciate handmade gifts, even if you didn't make them yourself. Look to handcrafted yarn bowls and even mugs. After all, everyone knows that knitting and tea go hand in hand.

Have knitting, will travel

Your knitter will be the envy of stitch club when she shows up with her project tucked up in a cute Fringe Field Bag. Throw a couple cute pins on the bag, and you have the makings of the best gift ever.

Knitting enabler

An interchangeable needle set (all the needle sizes, all the time!) and a swift and winder fall into that awesome gift category of luxuries your knitting friend will adore, but probably wouldn't buy for herself. Plus, if you've ever had to help said friend wind yarn by hand, that swift and winder is kind of a gift for you, too.

Ball Winder and Umbrella Swift from Craftsy $45-$141
