I've started making some crochet baby hats, to sell. I'm asking €20 ($26) per hat, do you think that is a fair price?

I'd appreciate some feedback if you guys don't mind.

I've started a small etsy shop, and will try selling on Facebook too.

I'm using sirdar snuggly baby soft approx €5 per 50g, acrylic nylon mix,and Rico so soft baby, €5 for 100g,acrylic. Because they are so soft for babies, not cheap, but not expensive either.

Here is a link to my shop, I've only got a few items up for sale, I'm in the very early stages, all credit has been given to the designers of the patterns I've used.
Tonight I'm working on a pattern of my own.

I'd appreciate any feedback.

I've heard that you take the price of the yarn and double it and add that to the original price... yarn $10, labor $20= $30 for the article. I know that you'll never get what you put into it if you got paid by the hours that you worked the article because no one could afford it!

I may get shouted down but I wouldn't pay that much but people will, the wool to me seems expensive, but then I can't afford it. Just wondered if wool in Ireland is expensive?
BUT this is just my opinion, good luck to you in your shop

I only charge for what it cost me for the wool and do not charge for my time. I have amarket once a month and do extremely well. Maybe I should put my prices up, but I personally would not pay $25 for a childs hat. My baby hats I sell for $5-$8. Baby jackets for up to $14.00 and booties for $4.00 australian that is, blankets start at $25.00 upwards depending on how much work. But good luck with your items.
