Knit, Purl, That's It!
The pattern is a shop pattern (I'm pretty sure, as there is no info at all on it, not even a designer's name- sad) from The Black Sheep Wool Shop in Salt Lake City, Utah, which sadly is lacking presence on the web (tisk, tisk.) If you REALLY want it
Black Sheep Wool Co

It calls for a yarn called Heillo, I knit it with Plymouth's Galway(abt 210 yds,) 2 balls of the red, 1 of the gold with most of the gold and half of one red left over.
Size US 8 needles
gauge is not important, but my bag did felt more than my mom's. I knew it would, having felted with this yarn before and knowing that it felts down tight and quick. I think she knit it in Cascade 220. I also made the handles shorter, as I know from my mom's bag that they will stretch eventually.
Tomorrow I will go in search of the perfect button for it.
