It's almost impossible to sell items you make for what they are actually worth. You might try Etsy, but be aware that many patterns do not allow you to sell things made from their patterns..even free ones. Always check the pattern, the website and/or the designer to look for that information. Your best bet is to design things yourself that you want to sell.

I frequently donate my crafts to the local church for fundraising bazaars and the like. It's hard to sell a lot of handmade items at a profit since mass production makes a lot of items available for cheaper than the cost of yarn.
