Is Crochet Really Profitable?

Is crochet really profitable? Are you a crochet hobbyist or entrepreneur looking to determine if your crochet niche is worth pursuing? Look no further! In this article, I will provide guidelines and ideas to help determine whether your crochet business ideas can be lucrative.


It is amazing how many people ask me... "Is crochet really profitable?" The easy answer to this question (if you're willing to take my word for it of course) is yes!!! It really is possible to profit from crochet and I know this because of my research and continuing business experiences.

However, if you are thinking seriously about starting a crochet business and still feel uncertain by its money making potential then the two main questions that I want you start focusing on are… “Does the crochet field have enough demand to be profitable?” and “How do I go about finding this out for myself?”

The reason these questions are important is because it is imperative to choose a business niche that you can be successful in, and it is a necessity (or should be) to determine this for yourself.

Important Note: A business niche is a business that is targeted toward a specific market segment, or group of people that share the same interest.

Is Crochet Really Profitable

So how do you figure out if your ideal crochet niche or any niche for that matter is profitable? Well here are some guidelines and ideas to review:

Look for Evidence 

When searching for evidence of a profitable business, you will want to answer the following questions: “Are there businesses in your desired niche that are successful?”, “Are there popular magazines, self-help, or instructional books in your desired niche?”, “Can you find your niche’s products in popular retail stores?”, “Are there digital products and/or physical media of your niche?”

If you answered yes to any of these essential questions, then your niche (in this case, crochet) sounds pretty good.

Interview People in the Crochet Industry

If you want to know if crochet is profitable, the best thing to do is to start interviewing people who have been successful in this industry. Ask them questions about their business, what strategies they use, and what tips they can offer. You can also ask about their income and expenses to better understand how much money there is to be made in this field.

The best way to find people to interview is to search online for crochet businesses, blogs, or forums. You can also reach out to people you know who are already working in the industry, and this will give you an insider's perspective on what it takes to be successful in this field.

Use Niche Specific Websites, Forums, and Social Media

If you are a little shy or apprehensive about talking to people in the crochet industry, try using a different approach; you can always email, instant message, or blog with people on niche-specific websites and forums. This can be a great way to connect with people and learn from their experiences. Plus, it's a great way to build relationships with other crocheters and get advice from those who have already succeeded in this industry.

Remember, you can also use social media to connect with others in this industry. Look for groups and pages dedicated to crochet, and start engaging with people with experience in this field. You can ask questions and get advice from those who have already succeeded in the industry.

Find Your Competition

To find your competition, start by looking around for businesses that are doing well in your desired niche, both online and offline. Take note of the number of businesses you find and whether they seem to be doing well. It's important to really pay attention to how these businesses are targeting your market niche effectively.

While some might be afraid of competition, it's important to understand that having competition in your niche market means that people are making money. This is a great thing and can be used to your advantage.

Perform Online Research

Even if your business is offline, you should still perform online and keyword-related research to find out how well your niche is doing. When conducting this research, try to find and answer the following questions: "Are there online websites, blogs, and businesses in your niche?", "Is your desired niche or product already available online through stores such as Amazon or eBay?", "When you type your niche into a search browser such as Google, does your niche get quality results?"

Online research tools can help determine whether crochet is a profitable business. While there is no guarantee of success, tools like Google Trends, SEMrush, and Ahrefs can provide insights into market demand, popular products, and competition. Business owners can make informed decisions about their sales and marketing strategies using these tools.


Starting a crochet business can be profitable if you are willing to do the work. You should know how much time and effort you need to put in and the costs involved. It is also important to research the market and find out what really works. With these tips and strategies, you can be well on your way to success with your crochet business!

You can create a profitable and enjoyable venture in the crochet world with the right plan and strategy.
