Are you a major procrastinator who knows Christmas is around the corner and hasn’t bought one gift? Or maybe you’ve got a crafty side hustle and you have a craft market in just a few weeks. What do you do??!! This is the panic I was always in right around September of every year. But there’s no need to freak out. I’ve got the answer right here – it’s called the Crochet Essentials Pattern Collection, 9 beginner-friendly crochet patterns for all of your maker needs!
I’m a craft market veteran. I’ve taken my lumps and lived to tell the tale. As a maker, there’s nothing I love more than the rush of interacting with customers and bagging up my goods for sale. But I always struggled with WHAT to sell. Finding the perfect combination of projects that are quick, simple, and won’t drive you nuts after making the 50th one can be tough.
That’s why I put together Crochet Essentials. It’s an ebook, currently available on Ravelry (and soon on Etsy!). This collection is a one-stop shop for items you can make for your craft market booth, and they also make amazing gifts for friends and family.
What’s inside the collection:
The unisex Mega Pom Beanie has all the features for a perfect handmade hat – comfy ribbed brim, gorgeous texture, plenty of slouch, and a giant pom pom. It’s made with worsted weight yarn and look great with stripes or color blocking.
If you’re tight on time, the Trenta Pom Beanie is what you need. Made from the bottom up with super bulky weight yarn, you can finish up your first hat in about 30 minutes.
The Bailey Ear Warmer is the youngest member of the TLYC pattern family, but one of the most beloved. I designed this pattern years ago and it’s been selling out at craft markets ever since. It’s a great alternative to a traditional beanie and makes a bad hair day look like a great one!
Modern and sophisticated, the aptly named Queen Cowl is the perfect cold weather accessory. It’s easy to wear, there’s no need for wrapping or complicated styling, and it looks great in every shade of extra bulky weight yarn. The pattern includes photo supplements to make your finished product shine.
For a different style of scarf, try the Level 4 Infinity. I designed it to be the ultimate protector from chilling winter winds. Wrap it twice for a stylish way to stay cozy and warm.

Cousin to the Level 4 Infinity, the Level 4 Snood brings texture and additional coverage to the collection. An otherwise simple design is elevated by adding one little variation on the crochet stitch used. The finished piece is timeless and easy to wear.
The Holey Cowl is a fun and practical variation of the traditional crochet scarf. The idea behind this design was a piece that combined warmth with breathability. Wear the Holey Cowl outside on a blustery day, or inside a chilly office.
Need to stock your craft market booth for a spring or summer show? I’ve got your covered! The Fresh Market Tote is an updated spin on the traditional crochet tote bag. It brings together the durability of cotton with the playfulness of color changing yarn cakes. Topped with string handles, this bag goes from the grocery store to the farmer’s market and library.
Last but not least, there’s Owlbert the Amigurumi Owl. This little cutie patootie was originally created as a holiday ornament but serves so many other purposes. Add a few drops of your favorite essential oils for an adorable air freshener, hang it from a mobile in a chic nursery, or even give him a squeeze on those stressful days. He can handle it!
