it is essentially a tape ribbon kind of yarn. you could probably use any ribbon that is around 1/4 inch wide (that is my perception of what the width was...i would have to be at home and digging to the bottom of my knitting basket to actually measure it!) i would think.

Dang! I just saw someone was selling some Trio at Elann and rushed here to let you know...

Well, if anyone else is interested, http://secure.elann.com/swap/available.asp on 4/3. No idea about seller or price - just enabling!

I printed that pattern out when I first started knitting as well. Never did find the yarn...I love those colors!

yes
Yes, the yarn is a ribbon yarn but on both sides seems to have a light weight chenille in various colors on it.

I'm almost half way done knitting the bag. Its very easy to do. The braid around the top worked out nicely too.

Funny thing tho...I don't see where it says in the dirctions to use the SECOND ball of the multi colored. It tells you to use it for the handles and the braid around the top. Then it tells you to finish using that same ball for the body of the basket then tells you to change to the first color again using the second ball of that and begin decressing. Well meanwhile I have a whole ball NOT USED yet of the multi!! So I am just going to continue using the multi which will make the bag bigger then do the decresing with the second ball of first yarn color. A bit confusing but I think I'm right on track. :XX: :XX:

I'm done
MY bag came out nice! You could use a chenille yarn and make it also if you can't find the Trio. It's a medium size bag and and was very easy to do. I am "storing" some Knit Picks sock yarn in it for their "Tulip and Gingham" pattern sock yarn that I ordered.

I'm going to need a spare room just for my knitted bags! Or I'll be putting a bag on every doorknob in my house. lol :XX:

Does anyone know if this would be a good sub for the Trio? My best friend is trying to get there on Saturday and I need to make up my wish list for her!

I can't see anything because the session has timed out.
