Daytrip Cinch Backpack Crochet Pattern

August 6, 2018

The Daytrip Cinch Backpack Crochet Pattern is perfect for your next outing! It’s made of durable cotton, with a solid stitch, and can hold all the things you might need.

I’m really obsessed with this stitch! It’s called the Overlapping Post Stitch and it has amazing texture. This stitch combined with Lion Brand 24/7 Cotton makes for crochet bag perfection! This bag is made with two rectangles sewn together, and then the straps are added. It’s super easy to make this fun bag design!

Lay both sides of the bag together, wrong side out.

I used my long ends to sew the bottom and sides.

Sew the bottom closed with a whip stitch.

Sew up the sides to row 43 with a whip stitch.

Fasten off, weave in all your ends.

Turn right side out

Weave one strap in and out of the loops across the top of the front side of the bag. Sew one end to the bottom corner.

Sew the other end to the opposite corner.

Repeat for the second strap on the back side.

Fasten off, weave in the ends.
