12 Free Crochet Backpack Patterns

It’s back to school season in many places and in honour of this scholarly event, I’ve rounded up a dozen of my favourite crochet backpack patterns. Best part? They’re all free! And if you don’t even have kids, like me, stitch one up for yourself. Backpacks are always useful, just don’t stuff too many textbooks in them. Your back will thank you.
