The other day I had an idea to write a pattern for a set of hand warmers/fingerless gloves that I could just change the stitch I used and have a different set every time- sort of like a base or jumping off point to make all kinds of different sets. I thought I could use all sorts of unusual stitches, like star, crocodile, jasmine, puff, bobble, etc. Ones that you don't see much and are really showy. Then people might buy them if I sold them on Etsy or something, and they might do well at the state fair (I enter it every year).

What do you think? I have yet to attempt the pattern and was just wondering if it would work and if people would like it.

I've not made a lot of sales myself (I haven't put in the effort, honestly) but the few sales that I have made, have been hats and fingerless mitts.
Generally, hats and gloves/mitts/mittens are quick to sell, if you price them right.
There's actually a forum for business advice where folks who make a living off their crafts could probably better help you.

Do you happen to know where that forum is? I cant find it on here.
