Hi Judy, I really would love to answer your questions, but I don't know how to contact you. The knitted bag was made with cotton/acrylic yarn. It's multicolored, so I didn't have to bother with too many ends in the end. ;o) The origninal bag are crocheted but I don't like crocheting. If you'll knit this bag (the squaeres) try not to use yarn with is too soft, it will stretch too much. If you have more questions please use my e-mail which you can find under my profile on the side bar.
Have fun knitting,
