It also means people will Identify your brand easily because they know you like knitting in a specific area.
Once you are established you can look at complementary products to your initial product line.
Make sure what you are knitting can be replicated easily and that the yarns you use are available all the time.
The last thing you want to do is knit up something with a gorgeous yarn you can no longer get hold off!
Make sure your pictures are fabulous.
They are what is going to sell your work on the online marketplace.
Lastly, if you are using a Paid or FREE pattern make sure you are allowed to sell the finish products from the pattern with the pattern owner.
Make sure whatever you choose to do you can make it unique and different to everything on the marketplace – make sure you have a browse around and look at your competition what can you bring to that product that will make it appealing and unusual?
You will want to be making things people NEED and because they need it they will want to buy it for instance:
Cell phone cover for their new mobile phone to avoid breaking it if they drop their new phone.
As opposed to an ornamental arrangement for their house which may not be required but would be nice to have.
