Gifts for yarn lovers can be so predictable. Instead of notions, patterns, or yarn, how about one of both of these super fun puzzle books?!

Horizontal image, on the left is a blue vertical rectangle with an oval photo of an activity page of a word and definition list that has been connected with colored pencils, with white line radiating from the oval. On the right is large text "crochet and knit puzzle books" and below that is a peach stripe with text "perfect gifts for yarn lovers". On the bottom right corner is a Jessie At Home logo.

The puzzle books reviewed in this post were provided by Debbie Deitke. All opinions are my own.

Same Old Same Old

Finding the perfect gift for the knitters and crocheters in your life can be hard. At least if you don’t want to go with the same old gifts from the yarn shops or Etsy. A knit or crochet pattern book, hooks, knitting needles, a yarn bowl, stitch markers, kits, or maybe a gift card just to make it easy.

Sure, those gifts are nice, but the best gifts for yarn lovers are a little different from what everyone else is giving them. So this holiday season, or birthday, or “just-because-you-rock” day, forget the same old gift ideas and go with something fun they can put in their project bag along with their wip (work in progress) that won’t be the wrong size, color, or fiber!

Vertical bright yellow rectangle. On top with a thin border around it, that is slightly thicker on the right side, is a photo of an activity page of a knit crossword puzzle that has been completed in colored pencil. Across the top is text "gifts for yarn lovers." A design of light blue dots in a rectangle is on the right top and a dark pink blob is on the bottom right with text "crochet and knit puzzle books they're sure to love." Along the bottom is text "Jessie At Home dot com."

Great Gift Idea for Christmas or Any Occasion

The Crochet Activity Book and Knitting Activity Book were both written and created by Debbie Deitke. Each paperback book is in large print and contains over 100 crochet or knit themed puzzles. These puzzles will craft hours upon hours of fun and relaxation for yarn lovers. They may even find some yarnie inspiration within the pages.

You can pick up copies of the Crochet Activity Book on Amazon HERE.

Vertical rectangular with 4 images. Top left image is an activity page of a word and definition list that has been connected with colored pencils. Top right image is the front of a crochet activity book. Bottom left image is the front of a knitting activity book. Bottom right is an activity page of an Alpaca shaped maze which has been solved with colored pencils. On the center is a green rimmed red circle with text "yarn lover stocking stuffers. Along the bottom is text "Jessie At Home dot com."

Word Puzzles

In the first section of each book you’ll find more kinds of word puzzles than I knew existed, including my favorite kind, logic puzzles. Just like with knit and crochet, there are puzzles of all difficulties. Word searches for beginners, word scrambles for intermediate, and cryptograms and trivia for the more advanced.

Picture Puzzles

Next are picture puzzles. Debbie doesn’t disappoint with the pictures, either. You’ll find sweater, blanket, and ball of yarn mazes. You’ll also find a variety of other picture puzzles featuring skeins of yarn, crochet hooks, socks, sheep, and more.

Bonus: Number Puzzles

At the end (well, before the answer section) you’ll find a bonus of number puzzles. There are find the numbers (like word searches, but with numbers) and sudoku. While these may not be all the yarnie in theme, we do spend a lot of time with numbers while knitting and crocheting.

Besides, something I love about being a yarnist is occasionally breaking the rules to create something amazing. So, if you want to give something amazing to your favorite knitter or crocheter, then go grab these books!

Forget looking through all the gift guides or scouring the crafting store. You can pick up copies of the Crochet Activity Book on Amazon HERE, and the Knitting Activity Book on Amazon HERE.

Vertical light peach rectangle. On the bottom 1/4 is a yellow block with text "puzzle books for yarn lovers." above that is an image of a cupcake in a pink liner with pink icing. Over top of the cupcake are 2 stacked images. The bottom image is the front of a knitting activity book, the top image is the front of a crochet activity book. Along the bottom is text "Jessie At Home dot com."

Want another bonus? Well, we can do that! I fell so in love with Debbie’s creations that I hired her to create some puzzle sets for members of Showstopper Creations. One of the sets is available to all members, and the other will go to anyone who joins before the end of the year.
