Here are the crochet patterns for all the crochet items that sell well to help you get started!
1. Mini Crochet Plants
Make these super adorable mini plants that are trendy in 2023.
Two things that are universally loved – soft, fluffy yarn and adorable animals. Combine the two and you’ve got amigurumi, which are basically just small, crocheted animals.
These have become insanely popular in recent years, especially as baby shower gifts and nursery décor. A few of these in the shapes of different animals (puppies, kittens, bunnies, etc.), and you can have a whole litter of amigurumi to sell!
What amigurumi sells best? The best sellers are often cute items like animals, food, and popular characters from TV shows (For example, Pokemon amigurumi is hugely popular!)
Who wouldn’t want a few, handmade coasters to spruce up their home? These are actually really easy to make and they look great in any kitchen or living room.
Plus, you can crochet coasters in all sorts of colors and patterns – the sky is really the limit here. Try your hand at some flower-shaped coasters which are quite popular right now!
Although one of the more complex items on this list, a crochet cardigan is definitely something people will be willing to spend big money on. A single one can sell upwards of $100!
So if you can manage to make a few of these beautiful pieces, you’ll be raking in the dough in no time. Just make sure you use high-quality yarn and put a lot of care into each cardigan – after all, they are rather pricey items.
4. Bucket Hats
The ’90s saw the rise of the bucket hat, and it looks like they’re making a huge comeback! From Rihanna to Justin Bieber, celebrities have been spotted sporting these trendy hats all over the place.
Crochet bucket hats are especially popular right now, so if you know how to make one of these bad boys, you can definitely score some sales with these trendy crochet hats.
5. Cup Cozy
I’ve found that one of the most popular selling items (especially during winter time) is the cup cozy. People love these things because they keep your hands comfy while you’re holding a hot cup of coffee or tea.
Crochet cup cozies are super adorable, and they’re actually really easy to make. You can whip up a few of these in an afternoon, and they make for great last-minute gifts too!
6. Market Bag
More and more people are now switching to reusable bags, and what better way to carry your groceries home than in cute, crocheted market bags?
These are great for summertime farmers’ markets or even just a trip to the grocery store. Again, you can really have fun with the colors and patterns here. Try making a few different designs and see which ones sell the best!
7. Hanging Basket
Here’s a unique idea for you – a crocheted hanging basket! These are perfect for storing things like fruit, vegetables, and even flowers. They look great in the kitchen or even in a bathroom as extra storage space.
Plus, they make for really cute décor items. If you can manage to make a few of these, I’m sure you’ll have tons of people interested in buying them!
8. Crochet Tops
Want to take full advantage of the hot girl summer phenomenon? Then you’ll need to make some crochet tops for the warmer months!
Trust me, these things will be in high demand come summertime at summer craft fairs.
From bikinis to crop tops, there’s a crochet top for every occasion.
And the best part is that they’re actually pretty easy to make – once you get the hang of it, you can churn these out in no time. Make these in a variety of different colors (bright colors work best for these halter tops!)
9. Baby Blanket
What’s softer than a baby blanket? A crochet baby blanket, of course! New parents go crazy when it comes to handmade items and baby gifts for their little ones, so this is definitely a great item to sell.
Whether it’s in baby blue, hot pink, or sunshine yellow, baby blankets make for really cute gifts as well. Just be sure to use soft, gentle yarn so it’s nice and cozy for the baby!
10. Ear Warmers
Last but not least, we have ear warmers. These are perfect for anyone who lives in a cold climate (or just hates the feeling of wind on their ears!).
They’re also really easy to make and can be crocheted in all sorts of fun colors and patterns. If you can set up a booth at a wintertime craft fair, I’m sure you’ll have no trouble selling these by the bunch!
11. Winter Hats
Making and selling winter hats is a great way to make extra money crocheting during the winter season. Use different color combinations to create stylish and beautiful hats that are sure to become top sellers when it’s cold outside.
