This was fun to make and I finished it in 2 days. I went all the way to the Joann's to get the right size hook and, not only did I buy the wrong size, but I already had one that size! So now I have 2 size F hooks and I needed a size I. I ended up using a size H hook (shoulda jumped up to J) for this bag and the end result was a bit smaller than I liked. I'll most likely end up making another one in a dark brown. I just need more handles. I used one skein of Paton's Classic Merino. The fabric is soft but not saggy (like knit would be) with the the crocheted stitches.
