Best Free Amigurumi & Crochet Patterns for Craft Fairs

by - March 11, 2022



Craft fairs are so much fun!  I love seeing unique artisan products, handmade by the vendors themselves.  On the flip side, I think it goes without saying that it's every crocheter's dream to have their products selling like hot cakes at a fair.  Quite often, makers might wonder: what are the best products to catch the attention of customers? 

I put together a list of popular crochet items to sell well, and while I pulled them together with the idea of craft fairs in mind, I'd say they're also excellent for stocking online shops.  

This particular list will focus on year-round items to make and sell for Spring and Summer craft fairs, as well as the Autumn / Fall and Winter seasons! 

These patterns are:

  • Quick to make (to easily stock up!)
  • Doesn't require a lot of yarn (most are stashbusters)
  • Cute, attractive, and generally eye-catching 
  • Unique and fun
  • Great as gifts
  • And best of all... FREE!!

You can save this roundup by pinning this page to your Crochet Pinterest Board.


Now without further ado, let's check out this roundup below.  Click on the pattern name or photo to go straight to the pattern page.  Happy crocheting!

Octobuddy


My Octobuddy pattern comes in two sizes! They are SO fast to work up (<25 minutes!) and is crocheted completely in one piece, making it a convenient no-sew project.  It can be made with any yarn weight or fiber, from cotton to chenille velvet!  It looks great in all different yarn colors (solids, ombre, self-striping, variegated yarn) and is easy to customize with bows, beads, facial features, and more!
