Hands-free! Whether you are a busy mother chasing toddlers, a cycling enthusiast, or have suddenly found yourself on crutches or a walker, this backpack is a pretty alternative to commercial backpacks.
Mill Stream is lined in fabric to show off the lacy stitch pattern and to keep your valuables safe inside. The photographed model was double-lined with white fabric on the outside in addition to a coordinating print for the inner lining.
The decorative shoulder cord is woven behind long stitches (tr) at the top borders, threaded through an eyelet on each side, then knotted inside.
Only basic crochet stitches are used. Complete text instructions are included as well as a stitch chart for the lace pattern. Pattern measurements are given in both metric and imperial (American) equivalents.
Pattern has been tested in Nomotta Catania and Knit Picks Comfy Fingering yarns. Any light weight cotton or cotton blend that works to a gauge of 27 sc and 32 rows = 4" (10 cm) will produce similar results (e.g. Patons Grace, Katia Bombay).
Pattern pdf will be emailed within 48 hours of confirmed payment.
