The Cinch Stripes Backpack is a simple bag featuring some of my favorite half double crochet variations! With easy rope straps, you’ll love making this one skein crochet pattern on Moogly!

This pattern features a few different ways to use the half double crochet stitch - including a couple of variations I came up with myself - though I wouldn’t be surprised to find they are already out there, I haven’t found them.

Mix this pattern up to make it your own! Choose your own yarn colorway, use different ropes or ribbons - or even crochet your own! Add or subtract rows as desired too - this pattern is so flexible, and I can’t wait to see how you customize yours!

Right and left-handed video tutorials included.
