"Whidbey Bag" by Wool & Pine @wool.and.pine.designs

As soon as we saw this great backpack that can be used for toting your lunch to work, your water on the trail and, of course, your latest knitting project, we couldn't wait to cast on! And soooo many choices! One color, two colors or that stashbusting project you've been wanting to find--this project has you covered!

Knit in the round as a tube with i-cord straps that are easily customizable, the pattern doesn't require colorwork (you weave the colors into the backpack with a darning needle!). And there are video tutorials included with the pattern to help you with the weaving, provisional cast on and how to attach your straps!

You'll need 500 yds of Cool Beans DK (2 skeins) for your backpack and size US 4 (3.5mm) needles.

The Whidbey Bag pattern by Wool & Pine is available for purchase on Ravelry.
