Ocean Mini Backpack+ Free Pattern

¡Compartir es Ayudar!

I designed the Ocean Mini backpack for Casasol Challenge. Even though I did not win, I want to share the free pattern of the crochet backpack with you and for free. It is very easy and also has a video explaining to you how to make an invisible color change. That will also help you in future projects.

I was born on an island and lived there for many years. As a result, I was always surrounded by water, which inspired me, that is why it is called Ocean.

I give you this pattern as a present. Hopefully, if you make it you can share it with me and tag me so that I can see it.

Making up:

  • Wave in yarn ends
    • Sew the button with a thread of bronze yarn in the front of the backpack.
    • Put the D Rings in the back of the backpack. In the top leave 1.57” from the border, and in the bottom put them next to the border. Then you put the straps with swivel clips.
    • Put lining to the backpack if you want to, I recommend it.
