This PDF is an original pattern written in English using US crochet terms. The pattern is for backpack buddies, keychain clips that kids can clip on their backpacks as zipper pulls. The pattern includes instructions to make both a bear and a koala.

Each of the pieces are made with worsted weight yarn (Koala sample uses Red Heart Super Saver and Bear Sample made with Loops & Threads Impeccable). The small amounts of yarn needed for this project make it a great stash buster project.

The Bear and Koala Backpack Buddy Crochet Keychains are perfect for kids heading back to school. Clip a little buddy on their backpack for a fun touch.
