Auditorium Backpack

Let’s skip the part where I talk about how it’s already August and focus on how CUTE our new knitted backpack is! Auditorium - Knitted Backpack Pattern (Download), designed by Sierra Roberts, is the sturdy knitted satchel you never knew you needed.

This perfect little drawstring bag is a cute and practical back-to-school tote for a little one. The Auditorium is also a perfect casual bag for you too! It’s a great size for a book, tablet, knitting project – you name it! If you’re into trying a little colorwork, the Auditorium is a perfect blank canvas for a cute motif, like the elephants or mushrooms featured in the new book AlterKnit Stitch Dictionary - 200 Modern Motifs.
