Camping is a great way to disconnect from your life, slow down and take a break from the buzz of everyday life. If you’re the type of crafter who enjoys making something for every occasion, then this is the list for you, because today we have the top 5 crochet items for campers along with a few extra fun ideas that you can make for your special camping trip.
Crochet Items for Campers
Crocheting for your camping adventure is a unique and fun way to diversify your crochet skills. Check out the top five crochet ideas for campers here!
Tents for Shade
Although you may not want to make your main camp tent from crochet, having a day tent for shade and lounging does sound like the dream. We love this lacy canopy tent that provides just that, as well as this smaller glamping tent that works great for kids or pets!
We absolutely love this fun camping blanket that has the cute message of "Camping: Where fires are hot and Skeeter bites are free! Camping". The different colors make it great for a stash busting pattern, or you can go with a more monochrome look like these camping blankets by Tricia Crow on Ravelry that have other fun camping messages.
Water Bottle Cozy
Remember to stay hydrated while out camping! Bring your water bottle along for hikes and wandering with this handy water bottle cozy that has a messenger bag styled strap. Need something to keep your hot cups warm? Try a cup cozy to keep the heat in!
Crochet Bear Sleeping Bag
Make your camper their own cozy sleeping bag with this adorable bear sleeping bag pattern! Make a fox version as well or even just a colorful striped one that's lined!
Make your own backpack with this beautiful drawstring backpack design that is roomy and durable!
Camping Pocket Pal & Other Fun Camping Accessories
Although this may not be helpful, having a cute camping pocket pal is a fun little accessory to bring along, especially if its for a camper spending the night away from parents. Create a play s'more set to accompany your little camper and foster imaginative play.
If you're a regular camper, create your own special camping potholders that stay in your camping gear year round. You can also stash away your special camping hammock to bring specifically for your camping adventures.

Ah, you’re missing a really good one, suggested to me by my rock climbing, camping, hiking hubby… But I can’t tell you what it is until I publish it. ;)
But I’ve also been wanting to try making a little campfire set. That one’s REALLY cute!
@laurindar3 Now my curiosity is piqued for sure!!
@CrochetBlogger Let’s just say it involved a trip to the hardware store… Hehe.
I also used to make waterbottle cozies all the time. I think everyone got one one Christmas. They are cute, bun and useful! I even made them out of Nylon cord for my hubby and his climbing friends which they hooked to their climbing harnesses with caribeeners.
