You’ve come at just the right time to finish off your back pack! Last time we finished the bag, today we’re going to make the straps and assemble the whole thing.
The first thing we do is attach the strap to the bottom corner of the back pack starting with a single crochet (sc) in the corner. I’ve chosen a lovely brown wool for the straps to match my ears.
Next we do 135 chain stitches to make the strap itself.
After that we weave the strap through the eyelets at the top like this.
Then we take the strap out the last eyelet and sc the end back to the beginning.
For the other side you do exactly the same process, starting with a sc in the other corner
And weaving the strap through the eyelets to ensure it is in and out of the SAME holes as the previous strap.
Once you’ve secured your second strap back at its start and sewn in the ends, you have a finished back pack like this!
Isn’t it great!!
This was the last of the DKO designs beginner crochet tutorials.
Woof and thank you!
