Pricing your work


Can anybody tell me how they price there blankets that they see? I have an order for 3 lap throw blankets, 2 colors each. How would I go about pricing them? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Susan orden


Some price by 3x the material cost, but that results in a very long per hour rate depending upon the yarn.

Another way is to charge by the yard, $.08 to $.10 used to be the standard.

I’ll more inclined to decide how much I want per hour for my work, estimate how much time it takes and charge appropriately. But then I don’t usually knit for hire either, because people wouldn’t pay $200 for a blanket.

Let us know what you decide!
