If you were to make this with one color, is this a ONE SKEIN project?
If you will be using the Cascade Avalon yarn, that will be a little over 2 skeins of a single color.
Is the Avalon yarn a soft yarn or a stiff yarn?

Us or uk pattern? Thanks
I have only crocheted one time – at a class where we could make whatever we wanted. I made a tote bag using mostly triple crochet. I think the top of the bag and the handle was a different stitch. I liked it so much that I bought enough skeins of cotton yarn to make more for gifting. Alas, I never made them. But I still have the cotton yarn! Your bag might be even more useful and I think I know where to find a class where I can get help when I need it.
Thanks for reviving my interest in crochet.
BTW I found you through Craft Gossip.
