  • Hi. I crochet too! I don't know how much money you'll be able to make but there is a site called etsy where you can sell your handmade items. Go check it out and see if you can find people selling the same items you'd like to sell and see what prices they have on them. Good luck

  • Yes! I can't crochet or knit at all and I love buying crocheted/knitted things. We had a craft fair where i work recently and I bought a ton of scarves and cute little crocheted (or possibly knitted, not sure) ornaments for holiday gifts. etsy is great as are craft fairs.

  • I love to buy crochet things especially cute hats for my 7 mnth old baby - I buy them from Etsy!

    Also, I do not know if you know this but when someone loses a baby at the hospital, they bring the baby to you in a lovely crocheted outift. When I asked the nurse about his she said that people crochet the tiny pink and blue hats, booties and jackets and donate them to the hospital. I always thought that if I could learn to crochet that I would make these infant outfits to donate. It meant a lot to me to see my baby in her lttle hand crocheted outfit.
