Crocheters are very similar to knitters in that they both work with yarn, but crocheters do not use needles, they use a hook to make a series of knots, whereas knitters use pointy knitting needles to make a continuous series of interconnected loops.

That said, a thoughtful crochet-related gift will make the crocheter in your life very surprised and happy.
