Today we will knit a backpack. That is a fashionable beaded backpack. Our goal – to create a knitted backpack, all the details of which will be initially tied, not sewn. This will avoid ugly stitches and preserve the amazing softness of things. In my explanations
So, let’s get started.
1. We will need:
1. Czech beads number 10 – 200-250g.
2. Gamma yarns with about 6 threads.
3. Crochet hook for number 1.5.
4. Fittings for fastening straps, a magnet for the valve pocket.
5. Lining fabric, sinteponovy seal, cord for tying.
2. The shape of the backpack and its design
Let’s see what our backpack consists of.
It is a cylinder with an oval bottom, a valve, a pocket and a pocket valve. At the same time, we will knit a pocket with a backpack, then we will tie in the prepared valve of the pocket, and at the very top, we will see in the prepared valve of the backpack.
2.1. Size and calculation of loops
Details on the calculation of loops can be found in my previous master class. Therefore, the backpack: my backpack has a base of 11 * 18 cm and a circumference of 43 cm with a knitting density of 4 beads per 1 cm, we get a circle of 172 beads.
We knit the bottom of the cylinder-backpack according to the scheme.
We type 20 loops and knit in a circle according to the scheme 22 rows.
It turns out that such an oval bottom of the backpack.
Since my pocket will be located a couple of cm above the bottom, then we knit upwards without adding two cm. In my case, this is 1 rows
As you can see, the edges are rounded and the cylinder begins to form.
It’s time to get ready for a pocket.
2.2. Bottom of pocket
My pocket has a bottom of a square shape measuring 10 * 3 cm.
We dial a chain of 28 loops and we knit according to the scheme
It turned out to be such a rectangular bottom.
Now ATTENTION: proceed to connect the pocket with ryuzakom
2.3. Pocket sewing
Dale will continue to knit from two hanks (one – we continue the hand-grip, the second – we continue the pockets). We will rotate one row of the main one, then one row of pockets, while we will knit the connecting part twice.
So, we find the middle of the pencil and the middle of the pocket. The long side of the pocket we have 38 loops. And compare them opposite each other.
We knit the main pieck, while at the junction with the pocket, we sew the hinges of the pocket and sang the backpack together, without beads. So we get 38 loops without beads, with which we connected two parts. Then we finish the circle of the handrail beads (to the junction point).
Now we knit a pocket. At the junction point, we connect the connected loops as if by the second level, that is, into the same holes, without beads. 38 loops
Then we finish the circle until the next connection, as usual, with beads.
With this sort of loosing we get a stenochka between the backpack and the pocket, tied twice.
We continue to knit a pile to the height.
2.4.1. Place under the button
In my project, the valve pocket will be fastened with a button. Therefore, you should prepare a place for the button. To do this, we saw several loops in the right place without beads. There we will fasten the button when assembling.
It turned out that such a pocket. The last row I tie without beads “step by step”. After that, the thread can be cut off the thread. So the edge will look neater.
We proceed to the valve of the pocket.
2.4. Pocket Valve
The pocket valve is knit from a separate hitch slightly larger than the side of the pocket. In principle, it all depends on your ideas.
We also tie the three sides of the valve with the step of the dog, except for the connection with the backpack.
I got this kind of rectangular planochka. We cut off the thread.
We find the middle of the wall of the pocket and the center of the valve, we make the details opposite each other.
We knit the next row of the backpack and in the place of the valve connection, we sew together the backpack and valve loops, with beads.
The result is this connection:
Well. The most difficult thing we did.
We continue to knit a backpack in a circle to the required height.
2.5. Place under the button
In my design of the backpack, the upper valve is also fastened to the button. Therefore, we also bind several loops without beads
It turns out that such a backpack. We knit up to the place of attachment of the main valve of the backpack.
2.6. Backpack and loop valve
For the valve, we collect 10 loops from a separate hamper and we knit according to the scheme to the required size. Thread with the image.
It turned out a valve.
We bind the loop with a simple flagellum. In this case, it is better to knit the flagellum without a crochet. So it will be more elastic.
I have a flagellum with 10 loops. If someone did not knit a flagellum, then this is done.
We dial the chain in 10 loops, we close in a circle. We irradiate 1 rad without beads, then knit in a circle with beads to the desired length (about 30 cm). The last row we sew without beads.
It turned out flagella. Cut the thread.
We find the middle of the backpack on its back side and compare it with the middle of the valve. Also in the middle of the connection, we have two ends of the eyelet. Compare the details to each other.
We continue to knit a knapsack. Having reached the point of connection, the loops of all the details are knitted together without beads to connect the parts. Everything is exactly the same as we did with the pocket.
After the connection, tie another pair of rows with the beads and the last row with “step-like step”.
2.7. Backpack straps
2.7.1 You can tie straps with the flagellum. I will repeat that I prefer in this case columns without a crochet, which makes the straps softer. You can just take a chain of the right size.
2.7.2. You can tie two separate straps. In my project, this is one long strap, folded in the middle of the half. So it’s more convenient to attach it to a backpack. Moreover, I have it as a removable option.
2.7.3. In order to adjust the length of the knitted webbing, I attached a chain at both ends, which will be attached to the rucksack by carbines. On which link of the chain we attach, this length will be obtained.
Our hand is ready. Can be collected.
3.1. First, it is necessary to fasten the braces to fasten the straps.
For this purpose, I plan the fixing points. In my case, there are three.
On the inside of the product, we glue (or sewn) a piece of dense fabric or leather, for which we will fasten the staples. This is to ensure that the knitted fabric is not torn.
The braces themselves are inserted from the outside into the holes between the loops.
Then we attach the carbines to the lower brackets. For them, we will fasten the lower parts of the straps. We leave the bracket just like a ring. The carabiner will be on the top of the strap.
In my project, the straps are detachable, since there is a knob-loop, also removable. Want – a backpack with straps, you want – a handbag-backpack with a handle-loop (in the photo above). A carabiner is also attached to the handle-strap.
On the inside of the product, we also strengthen the fabric with a dense cloth. Then we set the buttons. The buttons are small, so the “ears” of the clip are perfectly inserted between the knitting loops.
You can proceed to the lining.
How to make a lining with a sealant for a handbag (a backpack in our case), I described in detail in my previous master class.
Since the backpack should be pulled together on the lace, before sewing the lining, you need to take care of the lace for the lace. I made it out of a lawsuit. Suede, as well as the padding of the pocket and the valves – all visible elements.
When assembling, simply sew a side between the backpack and the lining. Then we take the string.
On both valves, we sew decorative fabric (lining?). I have a lawsuit. suede. Also, sew a lining in a pocket of a backpack.
Uff !! Our backpack is ready!
