This fun backpack makes a perfect gift for any Lego loving little boy or girl! I made it in the bold brights, but use your favorite colors for a custom bag of your own! To stand up to the kids, I recommend a strong acrylic like RHSS, but any worsted or aran weight yarn should work!

Pattern calls for 390 yards total worsted weight yarn in 5 colors
(Red Heart Super Saver in Cherry Red, Paddy Green, Royal, Lemon, and Black shown)

  • Red, Green, Blue, and Yellow: 40 yds each
