chunky hip bag

Simple to make on a large hook, you could make 4 of them in one day! Great for xmas gifts.

size: about 12" x 14"

yarn: 2 skeins Noro Oimochan
(or use any bulky yarn)

needles: US 11

Abbreviations:
sts= stitches
st st = k on RS, p on WS
k = knit
p = purl
k2tog = knit two together

tip: Make a liner out of an old pair of jeans. Leave the back pockets of the jeans accessible inside the bag, you now have a pocket for small items!
