Spring markets are on the horizon so I thought I’d help y’all out a little with some spring crochet patterns so you can do some last minute prepping! Included are some free patterns as well as paid, but the paid ones are pretty great IMO and totally worth the couple bucks 😉
“In the spring, I have counted 136 different kinds of weather inside of 24 hours.”
— Mark Twain
This quote definitely rings true in Michigan! Sunny and 40 degrees one minute and snowing the next…
I’ve been bouncing around a few crochet groups on Facebook lately and I keep seeing the same question, “What do you make for spring markets?” I think this question is on the minds of many crocheters this season as we struggle to get over the craziness of the holidays and Christmas craft shows. I figured this would be an easy way for crocheters to get your brain juices flowin’ and in the mood for some spring crochet, even though it may not seem like spring here in the midwest.
1) Towel Toppers
These towel toppers by Taylor Lynn Crochet are super cute and very nostalgic of what all of our grandmas used to have hanging on the oven. Whenever I hear Taylor talk about what to make for markets she always mentions how her towel toppers are best sellers all year round. She even gives tips in her blog post and youtube video on where to buy towels, how to poke the holes quicker and more. With a written pattern on her blog, and youtube video she’s got all you crocheters covered whether you learn visually or through written instruction.
2) Cord Keepers
This cord keeper pattern by Kathy’s Kozies works up super fast and they’re so adorable! At my recent spring market almost everyone who walked by would pick them up and say how cool they were. Definitely bring a couple cords so you can show what they do but after that you’re set! Plus this pattern is free on her blog 😉
3) Bobble Cozy
How adorable is this bobble cozy pattern by Darling Anne?? She turned her signature bobble toboggan pattern into a cup cozy pattern and I love it so much! These work up super quickly and look adorable on a Starbucks cup. So don’t forget to bring a cup with you to “model” your cup cozies.
4) The Daisy Scrunchie
This daisy scrunchie pattern by White Owl Crochet Co is perfect for markets all year round! Every girl or woman I know has loved these scrunchies. I have sold many at markets, but have also given them as gifts to many who absolutely love them. Velvet scrunchies are super soft and comfortable to wear all day long. These are perfect for top knots, ponytails, messy buns, and even just to wear on your wrist! Market these by wearing one in your hair and even one on your wrist to demonstrate how to use them. Plus to keep your hair out of your face while chatting with customers.
5) Hatching Animals
Any of the hatching animal patterns by Kayte Did’s is perfect for spring markets! I linked to the unicorn and Dino duo pattern because you really can’t go wrong with that combo! Something for boys and girls and perfect for markets. If those aren’t your style she has a whole line of these hatching animal patterns so there is surely one that will suit your fancy. Such as the hatching koala, flamingo, bunny, chick, and she continues to expand this line with adorable patterns added monthly!
6) Boho Bobble Twist Headband
This boho bobble twist headband pattern by A Crafty Concept is just too cute. The pattern is an easy & fast make, plus it’s free on her blog with a video tutorial. Make some of these in some neutral colors with a pop of color of maybe a mustard and you’re golden! Especially here in Michigan these headbands are perfect, keep your ears warm but you can still look super cute 😉 I suggest popping one of these on a mannequin head or yourself to show how cute they are!
7) The Halcyon Keychain
The Halcyon Keychain pattern by Christina Ann Studios takes me maybe 15 minutes start to finish. It is the perfect addition to your keys so they’re easy to grab. Especially when you have a 100 other things to carry. When displaying these at my craft show I put my key fob on one of them to display it. I didn’t realize about five people would worriedly said “OMG someone left their keys here!!!” sooo maybe just use a keychain printable from The Knotty Boss to avoid this.
8) The Star Stitch Washcloth
The star stitch washcloth by Maria’s Blue Crayon is a free pattern on her blog. Washcloths work up in no time, take a small amount of cotton yarn, and SELL. Handmade washcloths are always a hit. They remind people of what their grandma made when they were younger and they love how well they work. Make a set of 3 of these washcloths in coordinating colors and you’ve got a bestseller 😉
9) The Criss Cross Can Cozy
The criss cross can cozy by Yaya’s Hook N Yarn (me) is a super quick make and perfect for the warmer weather that is hopefully approaching soon. These only take a small amount of Bernat Maker Home Dec yarn so if you have some in your stash snatch this pattern!
10) The Valley Beanie
Sooo I know we’re talking warmer weather but let’s be real, it’s not very warm here in Michigan yet… So I threw in one beanie pattern, The Valley Beanie by Yaya’s Hook N Yarn (me as well ;)). The Valley Beanie has tons of gorgeous texture and makes such a cozy hat, if you’re looking to add a hat to your market prep I of course suggest this one! Make the brim in a light gray and the top section in Hobby Lobby I love this yarn “City Beat” for a spring colored beanie that’s warm enough to wear in Michigan “spring”!
Thank you so much for reading to the end! I would really appreciate you sharing this post of pinning it to your Pinterest as that would help me out a bunch! Also leave a comment of any spring patterns you love and maybe I can make another edition of spring market crochet patterns!!
