A crochet backpack is a fun way to use yarn to create a beautiful bag. I have always fancied backpacks. It’s easier to move around and get a hand free without having a lot of tiny pieces of stuff all hanging on me.
This backpack is unique in so many ways! I wanted a big backpack, so I made the sketch just like that and also added a POCKET! Yes, this backpack has a pocket, placed inside.
If you are a fan of crochet bags, you would love this backpack. you can totally customize this bag to your taste. There is no limit to what you can do. From having just a single handle to adding another shorthand and even making a smaller version of this backpack.
This backpack is only available as a print-friendly pattern in PDF. You can get a copy from either ETSY or Ravelry, using the links below.
The backpack was designed to go along with my Bucket hat, using a similar colorway.
