The crochet part of the pattern is just creating a rectangle bottom. I assume you can replace that with a knitted rectangle of st st, though it may be more stretchy than a crocheted bottom. I am just a beginner knitter, but a fairly experienced crocheter, and so my guess is that is why they are having you crochet the bottom of the bag.

If it's just a really solid bottom you want, you could always use this pattern stitch
K1. yf Sl1P yb. Repeat for all but the last two on the needle. K2.
P1. yb Sl1P yf. Repeat for all but the last two on the needle. P2
Use the M1 to increase and either K2tog or SSK to decrease according to your pattern
I did Lily Sugar'n Cream Back Pack from http://www.michaels.com and that is what they called for on the bottom of the bag. It is a very solid bottom.
