"Over the years I have made several of these. Speaking from personal experience, I can tell you that these boxes -when used in the pictured position- are not strong enough on their own to hold very many books or magazines for very long. Eventually they will sag and become an eyesore. Preventing the eyesore from happening is simple - turn the boxes on their side once they are completed, and Voila! They are an EXCELLENT way to wrangle in all that clutter and chaos we often find throughout our home and office. There is also another way to make them strong and that is to REINFORCE THEM. Personally, I like to do this when I need to use the boxes for flimsier items like loose papers that have a tendency to curl on their edges if stored on their sides or when not packed tightly. Reinforcing the boxes means you can put a lot more weight into them even while they are laying flat like they are in the picture. I reinforce my boxes with a very thin wood that can be purchased at almost any hardware store - it is called Louon (my spelling is probably off but it is pronounced LEW-ON). It is very cost-effective and extremely easy to work with. Add to this that it is VERY VERSATILE and you have a great solution to making even very flimsy projects much more stable. I hope this helps! BTW USPS boxes are legal to use BUT ONLY if you PURCHASED them OR they are USED. IF you are thinking about using new boxes that were FREE from the USPS Priority Mail Services - then you would be breaking the law. New FREE Boxes MUST be used only for Mail. Boxes that are Purchased or Used should be OK."

I started this afghan last night and it is SO much fun! I've got 14 rows so far and am using the suggested colors, which remind me of lattes! Thank you for sharing! LOVE it!

This is a very very pretty blanket. The picture above just does not even capture how truly nice is it, but it caught my eye and decided to try it. I love the texture created by the "bobble's" of the picot stiches and the versatility of it being reversible to create different looks. It cost me about $38.00 for the yarn at Walmart. Thanks Christie for clarifying the instructions, especially working from right to left.

@lois 4745689, All of our patterns are linked to the original designer's pattern, so we typically suggest contacting the designer for further guidance.

Hi Ladies, Hope I can offer some clarity here for you. To sjdik - in this pattern where is says with A (or with B or C) they are refurring to the colors listed in the materials list. In this case A is Coffee, B is Aran and C is Cafe. To Lois - you start this afghan by chaining 204 with color A, then proceed to work the foundation row (probably the only time you will "turn" the work. The rest of the afghan is worked right to left, always attaching the next color at the right, working across and fastening off at the left. If you're left handed, work left to right. Hope this helps. Happy stitching! :)

What do you mean? This pattern, Coffee and Cream Afgan, for example, says "with A, ch (chain) 204."

None of your patterns tell how many chain stitches to make before you start to make whatever you are trying to make
