Starting at one corner, ch 2.
1st row—Sc in 2nd ch from hook, * ch 2, (thread over, insert hook in sc and draw loop through to height of ½") 3 times; thread over and draw through all 7 loops on hook, ch 1 to fasten (puff st made), sc in top of previous puff st. Repeat from * until there are 3 puff sts in all, ending with sc. Ch 2, turn.
2nd row—Make a puff st in sc, * sc in next sc, ch 2, puff st in same place as last sc. Repeat from * across until there are 4 puff sts ending with sc in top of last puff st. Ch 2, turn.
Repeat the 2nd row, thus increasing 1 puff st at the end of each row, until piece meas­ures 7" (measuring down center, from 1st row). Ch 2, turn. Work 6 rows even.
Next row—Work puff st across as before but do not work over last puff st of pre­vious row (1 puff st decreased). Ch 1, turn. Repeat the last row until only 3 puff sts remain. Work 1 row even. Fasten off.

GUSSETS (Make 4)
1st row—Same as 1st row of large piece, making 5 puff sts instead of 3. Ch 2, turn.
2nd row—Same as 2nd row of large piece (1 puff st increased). Ch 1, turn.
3rd row—Work even.
4th row—Same as 2nd row (7 puff sts). Work 3 rows even.
Next row—Work in pattern, decreasing 1 puff st at end of row. Ch 1, turn. Work one row even. Work 1 row decreasing 1 puff st at end (5 puff sts). Work 1 row even, fasten off. Straight edge is top of gusset.

Cut pattern of pieces. Cover bone rings closely with sc. Sew 2 bone rings at top of each crocheted gusset. Turn 4 corners of bag toward center and pin gussets in posi­tion. Working with bag toward you work sc through bag and gussets thus joining. Make lining (inserting buckram interlin­ing in large piece only), and sew into bag. Using double corde make a ch 30" long, then work sl st back along chain. Draw cord through rings and knot ends together. Make 2nd cord and pull through rings from opposite side of bag.
