Here’s something brand new for Little Conkers, that I think is just perfect for the gift-giving season.
A little treasure chest of crochet goodies, and all eco-friendly and entirely plastic free!
I’ve used all my crochet experience to bring together small selection of super-useful, 100% environmentally-friendly and plastic-free crochet goodies. They make a perfect gift for any crocheter, whether they are a beginner or more experienced.
Read on for more details of the contents of the gift set, or go straight to see the Crochet Gift Set in my shop.

Bamboo Crochet Hooks
The set includes three of the lovely bamboo crochet hooks that I use in my crochet kits and that I also sell individually. I have included some of the most commonly-used sizes: 3.5mm, 4mm and 4.5mm.
Sustainable, environmentally-friendly bamboo is the perfect material for crochet hooks. Warm to the touch and 60% lighter than traditional aluminium hooks, many crocheters report they can work more comfortably and for longer with a bamboo hook. Bamboo is strong and flexible, and the hooks also improve with age.
Next, the set contains a GOTS-certified organic cotton drawstring bag. These little bags are just the thing for yarn storage and you can’t have too many. They’re also perfect for taking small projects with you when you are out and about. Draw the bag loosely closed around your ball of yarn, and then hang it from your wrist or the arm of your chair while you crochet. No more chasing escaping balls of yarn across the floor!
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) standard for organic fibres means the entire textile supply chain is independently certificated on both ecological and social criteria. These bags are produced responsibly by a family run business in India. The cotton is grown on non-GM, small farms in South India. It is then woven in GOTS certified weaving units and sewn into bags. The bags are machine washable at 40 degrees.
Also included in the gift set is one of my personalisable crochet notepads that have proved to be very popular little gifts in their own right. Every crocheter always needs a handy notepad in their project bag, and I designed these myself to be the perfect style and size.
These notepads are so useful for jotting down yarn notes, keeping track of rows and repeats, marking your place in a book and writing your next yarn shopping list.
The notepad comes with “my crochet notes” on the front by default, or you can add your own personalised text to make an extra-special gift.
The notepad is made from 100% recycled paper and card. The cover features my original drawing or crochet hooks and inside the cover you will find handy rulers in cm and inches – you never know when you’ll need to check something!
If you purchase the gift set here on my website, it will also include two cute mini skeins of yarn, in two different weights and two different fibres (plastic free of course) for maximum fun and experimentation. This is not available in the kits purchased on Etsy, which reflects the higher costs I have selling on Etsy compared to my own website.
Last but not least the set contains an exclusive gift voucher giving the recipient 10% off any of my crochet patterns on Etsy or Ravelry. Then they can choose exactly what they want to crochet.
Like my kits, the set is enclosed in a smart, re-usable box, and can be gift-wrapped in my environmentally-friendly gift-wrapping. I can also send it directly to the recipient for you – such a time saver in the run-up to Christmas!
