The pattern is inside Folk Knitting 2015

In Chinese folklure culture fish bring prosperity, so they are sewn onto children's clothing or decorate children's rooms. Vicki Square captures this whimsey in her inspired bag. The shape of Fish of Prosperity is similar to a small cotton fabric bag she saw in a folk art collection. Vicki uses felted wool for the body of the fish to produce a stable bag, then brings it to life with cotton embroidery thread outlining its face, fin, and adding a touch of detail to the tail. Button and bead eyes add the final touch.

Finished Size: 6" (15 cm) deep and 13" (33 cm) wide.
Gauge: 12 sts and 16 rows =4" (10 cm) in St st before felting.
