Modification Monday: Homestead Rucksack
Original Pattern: Homestead
Knitter Extraordinaire: Cassidy (Ravelry ID)
Mods: Transformed the original sweater design into a backback, using the charts as a starting point. Two panel construction with garter strip to connect and picked up ribbing with holes for the drawstring. Project page with more details can be found here.
What Makes This Awesome: This is an incredibly imaginative modification, as it really is only using the charts for inspiration on the panels, and otherwise inventing the rest of the construction. The garter strip that connects the front and back is perfectly done in the two colours, and the ribbing and straps look perfectly at home with this design. Cassidy is actually working on the pattern for the backpack, which I really look forward to! I'd love to be going back to school with such an amazing bag like this.
