What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you are making this for someone larger than a size 8 or so, lengthen your straps. I was unable to wear the knapsack as the straps were pretty short for me. They fit my niece perfectly. Also, the flap in the photo does not look anywhere near as big as it turns out. In my photo I have folded over several inches on each side so your can see the work on the knapsack.

Thanks so much - no lining - you would need a bag or pouch for small items, my niece uses it for books - I thought of lining it with cloth but decided not to,

I have Knitting Green and have been eyeing up this project for a while! It's inspiring to see it done. Nice job!

Thanks - it was fun, but make sure you check interweave for errata as I found a mistake, small one, but you will want to have the fix.
