Best Free Amigurumi & Crochet Patterns for Craft Fairs

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 that 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.

Most of the pattern below are great for all-year-round craft fair projects, but if you're looking for one specifically for the winter, please check out my Free Pattern Roundup for Christmas & Holidays!

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!
