In many ways, knitters are easy to buy gifts for, since you know they will be very happy with yarn – especially if it’s REALLY nice yarn.
The tricky part is knowing exactly how much yarn to get. Is one skein enough to make something special? How much would you need to make a sweater or a pair of mitts?
That’s where knitting kits can be very helpful. They make buying gifts for knitters super simple. Our kits are carefully curated, featuring patterns designed specifically for the yarn. Each kit contains the PDF pattern plus the yarn you need, in your chosen colour.
In this gift guide, we will cover gifts for knitters across a range of skill levels and budgets. We hope this will inspire your giving over the holiday season!
