Perhaps the only thing as nice as a great knitting project is a great bag to keep it in, especially one you can wear on your back to keep your hands free for knitting, or yarn shopping. This clever backpack features two drawstring cords, which pull the top of the pack shut when you pull it on your shoulders. Linen Stitch is a simple, two-stitch, two-row slip-stitch pattern that makes a firm fabric, ideal for bags.
