Gifting a ball winder and a yarn swift to an advanced knitter will definitely be appreciated.

Buying skeins of yarn and turning them into cakes has never been easier with a ball winder and swift combination!

This is a game changer when you like to buy hand-dyed yarn.

5. Interchangeable Circular Knitting Needle Set

If you or your knitter are serious about knitting, then having interchangeable needles is the most awesome thing ever!

I use mine ALL the time and having different-sized cables to swap with various-sized needles for different projects makes knitting so much easier.

You can get different sets from Knit Picks, from basic to deluxe with a range of different needle sizes.

6. Awesome Knitting Needles

Knitters also love their tools and beginners will appreciate a good set of straight knitting needles.

Most advanced knitters will have a set of circular knitting needles also in their kit, but straight needles are a great place to start.

You could look for wood or bamboo needles in a range of sizes.

7. Yarn 

Most knitters will prefer to choose their own balls of yarn, but super bulky yarn from Lion Brand or We Are Knitters is just so gorgeous and amazing that anyone will be happy with receiving a skein of this as a gift.

Soft and fluffy you can make a hat or a cowl from one skein and there is a whole range of colors to choose from.

This yarn is also an Instagram favorite, with knitters all over the world giving good reviews and showing off their makes and yarn stash.

If you are buying for a beginner then a bulkier yarn is great as it can create a fairly quick knit.

You could make an easy hat, a pair of mittens, or an oversized sweater.

New yarn will always be a great idea for a Christmas gift.

Every knitter will most likely enjoy a coffee or tea while working on their knitting project.
