Last minute gifts for crocheters

Looking for last minute gifts for crocheters? Don’t worry, it’s not that hard to find a unique and affordable present for your fibre friend! Gradient yarn cakes have been a trend in Europe and Brazil for quite a while, but this year they were more popular than ever: it has been a trend in the USA and all over social media. Why, you wonder? Well, with this yarn you can create phenomenal projects without having to worry about weaving in ends. I’ve personally designed a lot of shawls with this type of yarn.

Last minute gifts for crocheters (and knitters!)

Not many shops and brands sell them, so for the nicest color options you’ll need to order them online. I’ve made a list of my favorite gradient yarn cakes which are all ‘ready to ship’ on Etsy, a website for handmade items and craft supplies sold by independent sellers. This means the products will arrive within 1-2 business days. And the best part? You’ll support local businesses!
