Scrap Happy Knapsack Crochet Pattern By Sara Sach

 Scrap Happy Knapsack
 Crochet Pattern 
By Sara Sach of Posh Pooch Designs

I am super excited about today's Scrap Happy project.
 It's a Knapsack. You might even call it a backpack.
 It's a great bag for taking to school, to the library, 
shopping, as a baby diaper bag and even as a purse.

It's very sturdy because we stitch it up holding 2
 strands of cotton yarn together. Strong enough
 to hold books and groceries.


It measures 12 inches tall and about 24 inches around.
The size is perfect for kids and adults.
It's a very easy project using basic crochet stitches,
and it is a great way to use up all the cotton yarn in
 your yarn stash to make make something useful.

I Love it so much I think I am going to use it as car bag,
 to take my crochet projects along with me.

The Bag Can Be Easily Adjusted - 
Want it wider. just add more beginning chs.
Want it longer, just add more repeat rows.
