Knitting and Crochet Gifts Under $20

All of these gifts for knitters and crocheters are below $20. These crochet and knitting gifts can be used as stocking stuffers or as a more affordable main gift. Whichever option you choose, the knitter and crocheter in your life will surely appreciate them.

Yarn Bowl

A yarn bowl makes a wonderful and practical gift for knitters or crocheters. I actually received a similar one years ago and I absolutely treasure it. All you have to do is place your ball of yarn in the bowl and thread it through the spiral to keep it neatly contained. No more hunting a ball of yarn across the room! This one from Knit Picks has the gorgeous two-toned designed that is just over $20.

Neck Light

While originally intended for reading, this neck light is perfect to use while knitting and crocheting. It’s super portable, and the best part is, it’s hands-free! So your knitter can keep using both hands, even late into the night, while creating amazing things.

Fun Stitch Markers

There are all sorts of fun stitch markers you can get. Etsy has a whole selection, but I chose some of my personal favorites (click each photo to shop it on Etsy). You can find a wide variety of personalized stitch markers for knitters and crocheters. Whether you’re looking for nerdy ones, playful ones, or any design that your knitter or crocheter friend might like, there are plenty of options available.

Personalized Craft Labels

These custom sew-in craft labels make for an adorable and thoughtful gift for a crocheter and knitter. There are all types of personalized labels you can get on Etsy, including these sew-on labels. They get sewn onto a finished knit or crocheted item to add a personal touch.

Annie's Caring Crochet Kit Club

Annie’s Crochet Kit Club is a unique craft subscription kit. This craft subscription kit works just like all the others – it provides you with materials and instructions to crochet a project. But what sets this kit apart is that the finished project can be donated. So you can enjoy the creative process while also making a difference.

All of the projects are items for those in need such as chemo caps and blankets for children. They partner with organizations that will take the donations so once the project is completed, it gets sent to that organization. I absolutely love the whole idea and mission and frankly at $19.99 per month, it makes a truly lovely and affordable gift for people who crochet or a knitter who wants to get into crochet.

Giving yarn as a gift to a knitter or crocheter is always a safe bet. The only thing to consider is the yarn size. This mainly applies to those who exclusively make socks (go for “fingering yarn”) or work with thick yarn (opt for “bulky” or “super bulky” yarn). Otherwise, chances are the knitter or crocheter will find a project to use the yarn for.

I’ve selected a few of my personal favorites off of KnitPicks and Etsy (you can click on each photo to go to its page). Depending on the price of the yarn and how much you’re willing to spend, I recommend getting a few balls of the same color to make sure they have enough for a project. You can even pair it with some knitting needles this is a great simple set and a free downloadable pattern (such as these) to give the some inspiration!

Mini Amigurumi Animals Crochet Book

This book as a fantastic gift for a crocheter who wants to learn how to crochet amigurumi animals. If you haven’t heard of amigurumi, it’s this really cool Japanese style of creating adorable knit or crochet creatures. I’ve always been fascinated by it and it’s definitely on my list of must-have books because it’s all about making these cute little projects.

Yarn Cutter Pendant

This pendant is such a handy tool! It makes an amazing gift for knitting or crochet enthusiasts. Not only can it easily cut yarn and cord, but it also looks pretty. Talk about functional and fashionable! You can attach it to a necklace chain or a keychain and always keep it with your knitting supplies. How convenient is that? The pendant can be bought on KnitPicks or The Woolery and the keychain on KnitPicks.

Needle Gauge Tool

This adorable knitting needle gauge is a cute little knitting gift. It’s used to easily determine the size of a knitting needle since they’re not all labeled. For the serious knitters, they’ll have multiple knitting needles so this tool is super convenient.

Wraps Per Inch Tool

A wraps per inch tool is incredibly handy for both crocheters and knitters to figure out how wide their yarn is (yarn gauge). I have one of these and use it to check the yarn gauge of my hand spun yarn and if I lose the information on my store bought yarn.

Row Counter

This row counter makes a great stocking stuffer or even as a charm on a gift. Hang it on the ribbon or bow of the gift that has other knitting supplies. This counter slips on to the knitting needles and is handy to easily count knitting rows.

Yarn Ball Winder

This yarn ball winder makes dealing with yarn so much easier. For myself, this (especially combined with a yarn swift) is pretty much a game changer. No more tangled messes, this thing lets you easily make balls of yarn. If the knitter or crocheter in your life doesn’t have one yet, do them a favor and please get them one (along with a yarn swift).

Set of Cable Needles, Stitch Holders, and Tapestry Needles

This is a great set of extra types of needles to make all sorts of interesting stitches. This set contains cable needles, stitch holders, and tapestry needles. If the knitter in your life has been itching to try more intricate stitches and designs, this set is an absolute must-have. 

Portable Yarn Bag

This yarn bag may seem small, but it’s got a surprisingly large capacity. With a diameter of 12.7″ and a height of roughly 12″, it can easily hold 5-10 balls of yarn. Plus, it’s got plenty of pockets and storage space on the outside for all your crochet hooks, knitting needles, scissors, and more. These bags come in multiple colors and patterns to choose from so you can find the perfect one.

Pom Pom Maker

This set of pom pom makers is great for knitters and crocheters of any age. It comes with 4 different sizes of pom pom makers and some yarn to start with so your crafter can start right away making pom poms for hats, garlands, or whatever they’d like!

I even have a tutorial on how to use a pom pom maker.

Dish Towel Kit

knitpicks knit dish towel set kit

This kit comes with a downloadable pattern and 5 colors of “Dishie” yarn, perfect for making dishtowels. Just a heads up, making dish towels can be quite addictive. So get ready to receive knitted dish towels as gifts for every occasion (trust me, I know from experience).

This knit dishtowel kit is an intermediate level kit so it doesn’t come with needles. So in case knitter doesn’t have US 6 (4mm) needles, I recommend getting them a pair as well (such as these).

Pair it with a yarn ball winder and you have an amazing set of gifts for a crocheter or knitter.
