Main Body:

  1. Begin with a magic ring, ch 1 (does not count as a stitch here and throughout).
  2. Work 6 single crochet (sc) into the magic ring. Pull the ring tight to close the hole. (6 stitches)
  3. Place a stitch marker in the first stitch to mark the beginning of the round.
  4. Work 2 sc in each stitch around. (12 stitches)
  5. 1 sc in the next stitch, 2 sc in the next stitch. Repeat around. (18 stitches)
  6. 1 sc in the next 2 stitches, 2 sc in the next stitch. Repeat around. (24 stitches)
  7. Continue this pattern, increasing the single crochets between increases by 1 in each round until you have the desired width of the backpack.

Body Height:

  1. Work 1 sc in each stitch around for the desired height of the backpack body. Repeat this round until the backpack body reaches the desired height.


  1. At the beginning of a round, chain a certain number of stitches to create the width of the flap (this can vary based on your preference).
  2. Skip the same number of stitches as your chain, and then work 1 sc in each remaining stitch of the round. This creates the flap.
  3. Continue working 1 sc in each stitch around the flap for the desired flap length.


  1. Attach the t-shirt yarn to one side of the backpack where the strap should begin.
  2. Chain the desired length for the strap.
  3. Attach the other end of the chain to the opposite side of the backpack.
  4. Repeat this process for the second strap.

Button Closure:

  1. Attach the button to the center of the flap and align it with the body of the backpack. This will serve as the closure mechanism.


  1. Weave in any loose ends using a yarn needle.
