Pattern Notes

  • The base and the body of the backpack are worked in the round, from bottom to top.
  • The flap is worked in rows and is seamed to the back of the bag to create the final backpack.


Using a 7mm hook and two strands of color B held together, follow rounds 1 through 8 as outlined in your detailed pattern instructions to create the base of the backpack.


For the body, attach B yarn (still double-stranded) at the base and follow rounds 1 through 46, as specified, incorporating the fi (fair isle stitch) as indicated in the pattern to create the design.


With two strands of color A held together, and a 7mm hook, start by chaining 24. Follow rows 1 through 26 to shape the flap of the backpack.

Flap Border

Complete the border of the flap by attaching color A to the last stitch and working sc evenly around the edge as per the pattern specified.
