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.
Slouchy Stripes Backpack
This slouchy backpack uses Bernat Maker yarn, which I recently first tried out and decided I love the feel of working with it.
Crochet Club Backpack
This backpack is so pretty and this isn’t only a pattern but a tutorial, complete with helpful photos.
Crocheted Backpack by Susanna Winter
So simple and so beautiful.
The Sophia Drawstring Backpack
Drawstring backpacks are so practical.
I love that this backpack has a top handle. Sometimes you just need to carry it with that and give your shoulders and back a break.
Crochet Rainbow Drawstring Backpack
Okay, this one is written up for kids but I think it’s so cute that one day I will make it for myself.
Crochet Dragon Fly Bag
I love the dragon fly motifs on this.
Simple yet stylish.
Crochet Daytripper Backpack
I love the leather straps on this one.
I love the shape of this backpack.
Rainbow Dragon Backpack
This has been haunting me on Pinterest for a long time. One day I will learn the crocodile stitch and this will be one of the projects I attempt.
Isn’t this little backpack so cute?
I remember back to school shopping was the funnest part of going back to school for me. What about you? Did you like going back to school? Did you use handmade backpacks? Have any free crochet backpack patterns to share? Post below!
