Crochet: Backpack



I’m excited to try to crochet a backpack. Don’t know what I’m doing, (as usual), but I have this hobo bag (It’s the purple bag below the skeins of yarn), that I had crochet a while ago. Of course I got it from Teresa. I think I am going to modify this pattern though, in making my backpack. I’m going to use all 5 of these yarns at the same time and then I think I might keep crocheting a bit longer than where my hobo bag pattern had to stop.


There’s also this small pouch purse that I had also made a while ago, and there’s a point in making the pouch where you can make it so that you can slip some corded yarn through it, and then you can close it. Like a drawstring. Of course this small pouch pattern also comes from Teresa.


I had a backpack, a cheap thing that I bought from the Dollar Store, but it only lasted about a week. I guess that’s what I get for trying to save money. But I really need something to put my things in when I go out exercising (walking for two hours), since I’m gaining weight.

Sad smile


This is one of the things I love about crocheting and knitting. I’m sure I’ve mentioned this before, but it’s just so neat. If I need or want something, I can just grab some yarn and start working. How cool is that.

Open-mouthed smile

Hey Vicki. I can't wait to see how it comes out either. I'm working on it now, and I'm using two skeins at one time, and I'm wondering if I should have gone with 3?

But we will see. Thanks for the encouragement.
