5 Things “You Should Crochet” Because They’d “Make You Rich!”

Crochet items that make people say: You should make and sell that! You would totally be rich!

“You should make that! You could sell them! You'd make so much money!” As a crocheter, you've probably heard THAT a time or two!

On the one hand, it's really nice, right? Your friend, spouse, family member, a stranger walking by … someone thinks you have the talent to create something that millions of people want to throw money at you for.

On the other hand, someone already thought of it, AND you already create the stuff YOU like to make. (What's wrong with YOUR stuff? Sigh.)

Anyway, here's our current list of:

Crochet Items That Make People Say, “YOU Should Make That!”

NOTE: We don't have the patterns for the items below. Please do not contact our awesome Customer Service team looking for the patterns. Seriously. These patterns, we do not have. And by the way, we don't have these patterns.  

The Bernie Sanders Inauguration Meme Doll

Inspired by a meme of Senator Bernie Sanders at the Presidential Inauguration, the tiny crocheted version went viral, prompting anyone who knew a crocheter to say, “You should make that!”

You Should Make Bernie Sanders' Mittens

From the very same event, Sanders' mittens took off as well. Crafty makers came up with patterns for look-alikes, and the internet went mad.

Crochet Hats for Cats

This comes up pretty much anytime someone sees an adorable picture of a cat wearing a hat, which is SO much more often than you'd think.

Baby Yoda, You Should

With the advent of the new Star Wars show, The Mandalorian, there came The Child. Otherwise known as Grogu, otherwise known as Baby Yoda. Small, cute, and with giant shiny eyes, this little guy was waiting for crochet patterns aplenty and friends to start asking for him!

Ugly Men's Crochet Shorts

Every summer, photos like these go around, along with the news that some designer has repurposed old afghans from thrift stores and become rich. Suddenly, all your friends are saying, “You should do that!” Um. No, thank you. I like what I make better.
