here's my monkey.... intarsia was a challenge for me.... i didn't use a different ball of yarn for each color break, so it was all disconnected...but I just crocheted it all back together when i finished the monkey intarsia part. I fudged it, but it's all good in the end. Mine looks a little eddie munster-ish to me, but i luv it.

That is so adorable and it looks awesome. I did my monkey in shades of pink and purple on a black bag and I ended up doing it shoulder bag style instead of like a backpack, but yours looks so cute I'm thinking about making another one and actually following the pattern for it!

I love the shade of green you have used.
Very cool! And the contrast straps look good.

I used a machine to sew it. Mine came out less than rectangular, more rhombus-like, ha, i used really stretchy fabric.

I'm in the middle of knitting this. And I was wondering if anyone had ideas on how to make it a little more stiff. Maybe I could put some interfacing on the lining. Or stick a little rectangle of hard plastic into the bottom. I'd like it to remian washable. I'm just not sure I love such a limp look. But maybe it looks really great once it's on. I don't recall ever seeing a knit backpack.

My other question is: I started with the back piece (not the patterned side) and after knitting up 13 inches realised my gauge had magically changes on me and I was now 15 as opposed to 18 stiches to 4 inches. Should I knit the piece up longer or frog it all and start again? My worry is that the back is patterned by inches and the front sections are patterned by rows and I want to make sure they match up.
