For design, I created the Dino backpack and I love what he gave! You can find the complete boss in this Ravelry store And in full video tutorial on this YouTube channel.
Materials Long hair wire in color A (backpack) Colored wire B (tips and cords) 4.0 mm hook 4.5mm Cissals Tapestry needle points or recovery wire
Point key (American terms) Ch = chain SC = single hook inches (put two points in the same space, in this case, simple hook points) sl st = point slipped jayg = ass you go
Special suture points
Assemble as you want (Jayg)): It is an assembly technique that I learned from cypress textiles by making its coverage for baby trellis and chevron about 3 years ago and I have been using it since!
I love to assemble in this way because it is faster, there are fewer wrecking tails and it gives a very nice assembly. This method is used when you take two pieces of hook and join them together. *Insert your hook into song A and make SCs.
Remove your loop hook. Insert your hook into the same mesh but on the song B. Catch the loop still attached to the song A and pull it through the stitch of the song B. Repeat from *. It was easier to explain in words than I thought!
If you are still not sure what is going on, there are images here in the model where you can jump to the brand 35:00 on the YouTube video.
Back bump: You return your starting chain and insert your hook into the "rear bump" of the chain to place your point. If you are not familiar with this technique, I suggest you look at the tutorial below Fiber flow on YouTube.
Crochet dinosaur backpack
Body | Make two With your 4.5mm hook and your wire has a flowing knot and CH 41.
Rang 1: Sauté the rear bump closest to your hook, SC 40 in each rear bump. Ch 1, turn. (40)
Rows 2-9: SC 40. CH 1, turn. (40)
Now we are going to transform our work into a small tunnel for the passage of tightening cords.
Rang 10: Fold your work in two, like a hot dog, so that rank 9 and row 1 touch.
By ensuring that your stitches are aligned, make 40 SC between Rang 9 and Rang 1. CH 1, turn. (40)
Trick: The side of your work you see when you crochet rank 10 is the "good side". Put a mesh parker or a piece of wire on the "bad side" to find out during the assembly which side is the right one.
Rows 11-56: SC 40. CH 1, Turn. (40)
Attach and sew your tails. Tips | Do 4 Using your 4.5 mm hook and your wire bin The tips are made with a round in circles. There will therefore be no junction or chaining, but just a continuous turn.
1st round: 6 SC to form a magic circle. Put a mesh marker in the 6th SC to find out which mesh was the last stitch in the Tour. (6)
2nd round: inc in the first stitch (the 1st stitch of the 1st round), SC 2, Inc, SC 2 (8)
Place your mesh marker in the 8th stitch in the 2nd series. Continue to move your point marker to the last mesh of each round.
Tour 3: inc in the first mesh, SC 3, Inc, SC 3 (10)
Tour 4: Inc in the first mesh, SC 4, Inc, SC 4 (12)
Tour 5: Inc in the first mesh, SC 5, Inc, SC 5 (14)
Tour 6: in the first mesh, SC 6, Inc, SC 6 (16)
Round 7: Inc in the first mesh, SC 7, Inc, SC 7 (18)
Round 8: Inc in the first point, SC 8, Inc, SC 8 (20)
Tour 9: SC in each point around (20)
Attach and sew your tails.
Once all your tails are sewn, take one of your peaks, flatten it between your fingers and insert your hook in the right corner. SL St Le Pic closed to the bottom.
When you arrive at the end of the first peak, pick up your second peak and continue at SL St along the second peak.
Do this until the 4 points are sewn together in a row. Tie them and leave a long tail to tie them to the backpack. (like 24-36 "long)
The slipped point creates a beautiful base for the tips to be attached to the backpack, and attach them all together makes the seam on the backpack easier.
Using your 4.0mm hook and the color B wire (the same as the tips), hook an I-Cordon about 49 "long.
How to make an I-Cord (or you can jump at 8:30 pm in the video to see me do an I-Cord) with the 3rd ch loop always on your hook, insert your hook in the second ch from your hook And pull a loop. You now have 2 curls on your hook.
Insert your hook into the 3rd ch from your hook and pull another loop. You now have 3 curls on your hook and that's where it starts to become weird.
* Remove your 2nd and 3rd loop hook but do not let the curls fall, let them loop without your hook.
Catch your work wire and gently Pull the loop that is always on your hook.
Insert your hook into the 2nd loop from your hook (the first loop being already on your hook), pull on a loop. (2 loops in total now)
Insert your hook into the 3rd loop from your hook, pull on a loop. (3 loops in total now)
Then you simply start again from * until the length is about 49 ″. (If you make one for a young adult or an adult, you will have to make your suspenders a few inches more than 49 ″).
Meeting of tips
Fold the rear part of your backpack in half, like a hot dog. Use a trombone to tighten the room together (where the sides meet, not on the folded side) so that it remains folded.
With a contrasting thread, sew a current point on the folded side. This is just a temporary line to help you align your tips.
Align your first peak so that it is in the center of the backpack and the upper edge (where your tail is located) is just under the bottom of the cord tunnel.
Put your tail on a tapestry needle and start sewing the tips on the backpack.
If you want to see what's going on, you can go to point 27:50 of the video.
The parts of the backpack will be assembled using the Join As You Go method.
It is explained in the special points section, but I will re -explain it (with images here).
You can also go up to 35:00 in the video to see it if it helps you more. If you still have difficulties with the Jayg method, you can probably just assemble the parts if you wish, your appearance will simply be different.
Place your two parts of backpack together, the right sides touching and with the cord tunnels at the top. Place your tips flat so that they do not prevent you from reaching the backpack.
Let us call the top room the room t (up) and the bottom room B (for bottom).
You will work along the raw edge, so you will have to make your own points to reach the sides of the backpack, but the points are quite easy to see once you have understood the principle.
There is a place that looks like a passage under a bar, then the following looks like a small hole.
So you're going to make a bar, hole, bar, hole all along the way.
Insert your hook into the first stitch after the t tunnel, tie your wire with a CH.
Advice: this point will look like a bar. Insert your hook into the first mesh after the tunnel on B, place a SC.
Advice: this mesh will look like a hole. Take out your hook from the loop is on your hook after finishing the SC.
Insert your hook again in the same space where you have joined the wire on T. (bar)
Catch the loop, pull it through.
You will repeat this operation all along the left side of the backpack for a total of 45 points Jayo.
Tip: Your next SC must go to a bar area on B.
Now is the time to make a jayg on the bottom of the backpack. It's much simpler because you can see where the points you need to reach. After finishing your 45th stitch on the left side, insert your hook in the first mesh at the bottom of B and SC.
Remove your loop hook, insert your hook into the first knit of T, grab your loop and pull it.
Then insert your hook in the 2nd knit of B bottom of B and finish the Jayg point by shooting through the 2nd stitch at the bottom of T.
Continue to attach the bottom for a total of 40 stitches.
Another side and you've finished with the Jayg method!
Just after finishing the 40th mesh at the bottom, go directly to the first space (bar) on B, make a SC then pull the loop through the first space on t (hole).
Continue to go up along the right side of the backpack for 45 stitches.
Tie and sew your tails. Turn your back on the place.
Assembly of the tightening cord
To add the tightening cords, you will need to use a hook (a hook without rubber handle is ideal) to pass the cords in the tunnels created during the manufacture of the parts of the body.
If you look at your backpack, at the place (the tips on your back), your first strap will enter the left side of the front room and will come out by the right side of the front room.
Then, you will put it in the rear room, entering the right side and leaving by the left side.
For the second strap, make the opposite. You enter the front room on the right and go left, then in the rear room on the left and go right.
Using your hook, pull the ends of the straps in the backpack and tie them together. The knot must be inside the backpack.
Tip: it helped me put the backpack backwards for this stage.
Sew the remaining tails and it's over!
