Other places to sell patterns - help

Hi all, I’m just wondering has anyone else sold patterns and items on the like of Etsy/Ravelry? How do you find it? Is it worthwhile? I’d like to branch out so any feedback would be great!!


I have found that people don’t do very well on etsy for crochet or knitting but I would try Ravelry for some more pocket money and even just showing tutorials on youtube helps quite a bit after some time and practice. I know that the probably best way to sell is craft shows. If you want to more more about prepping and stuff watch Cameronscutecreations on youtube. She is amazing​:sparkling_heart:Hope this helps!


I personally have had a few sales on Ribblr but little to none on other sites. I do still have some of my patterns available elsewhere though, just in case someone does buy them on one of those platforms.


I have mine set up on ravelry but haven’t placed my patterns on it yet. So far I’ve had more sales on Ribblr and more success with tester calls.

I’ve looked at selling on ravelry and I found it quite confusing and I would say that Etsy isn’t really the best for patterns just because Etsy takes a large chunk of the money you make (6.5% of the total profit plus like a 20 cent fee or so) so Etsy better for higher priced things in general but that’s just my opinions.
