Crocheted Mill Stream Backpack

Hands-free! Whether you are a busy mother chasing toddlers, a cycling enthusiast, or have suddenly found yourself on crutches or a walker, this backpack is a pretty alternative to commercial backpacks.

Mill Stream is lined in fabric to show off the lacy stitch pattern and to keep your valuables safe inside. The photographed model was double-lined with white fabric on the outside in addition to a coordinating print for the inner lining.

The decorative shoulder cord is woven behind long stitches (tr) at the top borders, threaded through an eyelet on each side, then knotted inside.

Only basic crochet sts are used. Complete text instructions are included as well as a stitch chart for the lace pattern. Instructions include metric and imperial measurements.

Gauge shown is single crochet.
