Step by step Pattern (Summary)

Starting The Magic Loop

Round 1: Work a magic loop with eight single crochets (sc), then pull the tail to close the loop.
Increasing Stitches
Round 2: Work 8 increases (two single crochets in each stitch). Use a marker to note the beginning of the round.
Round 3: One single crochet in the first stitch, then an increase in the next stitch. Repeat this sequence around the loop.
Round 4: One single crochet in the first two stitches, then an increase in the third stitch. Repeat this sequence around the loop.
Round 5: One single crochet in the first three stitches, then an increase in the fourth stitch. Repeat this sequence around the loop.
Working the Body
Rounds 6-18: One single crochet in each stitch around (40 stitches in total).

Creating Openings

Round 19: One single crochet in the first three stitches, chain one, skip one stitch. This pattern varies in repetition; follow closely for the creation of openings.

Finishing the Body

Round 20: One single crochet in each stitch and each chain space from the previous round (40 stitches total).
Round 21: Slip stitch in each stitch around the loop, then cut the yarn and tie it off.

Making the Front Flap

Repeat from round 1 to round 3 of the sock part. Start round 4 by slip-stitching in the first six stitches, then work a pattern of single crochet and increases to create a buttonhole loop. Finish round 5 with a slip stitch in each stitch, except in the buttonhole where two single crochets are worked.

Crafting the Handles and Straps

Handle: Slip knot and chain 8, then single crochet back along the chain. Finish with a slip stitch in each stitch.
Shoulder Straps: Similar to the handle, but start with chain 13. Two shoulder straps are needed.

Creating the String

Braid three strands of thread to about 20 centimeters in length.

Assembly

Combine all crafted parts to form the backpack, attaching the string, button/bead, handles, and straps as per the tutorial’s guidance.
