5. The Sunrise Coaster by TL Yarn Crafts.
First, Toni is the greatest and an amazing crochet resource and you need to go check out her page.
While this coaster isn't necessarily a fall specific item, whip them up in some lovely fall colors and there is just something so fall and cozy about them. Makes me want to curl up with a good book and a cup of warm tea. And it only takes 5 rounds to whip up these coasters!

4. Crochet Candy Corn by Cheryl at Crochet365KnitToo
These little cuties are a quick and easy market make for your fall or Halloween markets!
This pattern uses worsted weight yarn but you can easily use a bulky/chunky (size 5) or super bulky (size 6) to make a bigger size candy corn. I can even imagine this in a jumbo yarn (size 7)! So squishy and cuddly! If you stuck with the worsted weight yarn, you could stitch up a few and string yarn through the top of each for a sweet candy corn garland!
This is also a great beginner friendly amigurumi project. Test your skills at color changes and crocheting in the round without having to do any sewing.

3. Chunky Coffee Cozy by TenderWarmCreations
I'm always team hot coffee over iced because I just drink iced coffee WAY too fast. So you know I had to add a simple but beautiful cup cozy to this list!
Some cup cozies available out there can get pretty complicated with color changes and such, but I wanted to these patterns to be easy for quick makes. Whip some of these up in cozy fall colors and there you go! Pair it will a cute cardstock cup holder template for your market make display/price tags.

2. Chunky Crochet Garland by DeliaCreates
Okay, okay so this isn't exactly a fall crochet pattern BUT this can be made fall or winter depending on the color you chose. Original pattern is for Christmas tree garland but this would be beautiful mixed in with your fall foliage if you do a fall garland piece on your mantle.
This is an easy pattern to bust out while listening to a podcast or audiobook or watching your favorite tv show. I will be bringing a bunch of these with me to my fall markets!

1. Quick and Easy Pumpkins
Of course pumpkins are number one on my list! These cozy fall décor pumpkins are so simple and quick to stitch up. You can find tons of patterns for these on Pinterest if you need pictures and/or tutorials. My favorite is the back loop only pumpkins. You can customize them to whatever shape and size you want depending on the length of your initial chain or how many rows you complete. You can change the look of your pumpkin by what stitch you use. So try single crochet, half-double crochet, and double crochet pumpkins!
Here is a simple medium size pumpkin pattern.
Leaving a long tail, Chain 16
Round 1: In the second chain from hook, single crochet in the back bump all the way down. Crocheting in the back bump makes for a sturdier foundation chain. (15 sc).
Round 2: Chain 1 and turn. Working in the back loop only, sc 15 all the way down. (15 sc)
Repeat round 2 until your pumpkin is 2.5 times longer than the height of your pumpkin. So if your pumpkin is 6 inches in height, crochet as many rounds as it takes for your work to be 15 inches long. (6 x 2.5 = 15)
Finishing: I like to finish on a row that leaves my tail on the same side as my beginning tail. Fasten off leaving a very long tail, around 24 inches. (I always leave a longer tail than probably necessary.)
Fold your work so your first row and last row are touching and weave or whip stitch your piece together with a tapestry or yarn needle going through all 15 stitches. Now you should have a tail at each end of the pumpkin.
I like to use the beginning tail as the bottom side of the pumpkin. Take that tail and weave it in and out of the raw edge of your work and cinch it closed. Bring the tail into the inside of the pumpkin.
Stuff the pumpkin and do the same with your ending longer tail. Once your pumpkin is stuffed and cinched at both ends, you can weave the long tail down the center and out the bottom. Pull tight and do a couple of passes through the pumpkin to pull the center in.
If you left enough tail, you can make ridges on your pumpkin by taking the yarn on the outside of your pumpkin, up through the bottom, and back out the top. Create even portions with however many sections you like. Secure yarn on the bottom side of your pumpkin and weave in the rest of your tail. Of course, you can skip this step if you wish! Add a stem of your choosing or leave it without if you want to stack a few of them.
Now you have a textured crochet pumpkin!
