“For hands free style, sling this sturdy backpack over your shoulders. Roomy yet low profile, this piece features a clever closure that combines durability with flair. After all, everyday jesters of all stripes can make better use of their hands for juggling shopping bags, hamming it up on their lunch break and otherwise entertaining at court.” - Hip Graphic Knits

Yarn: One skein each in eight different colors; alternate yarn suggested is Nashua Handknits Julia.
