"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."

Wow what a beautiful Diamond Bobble Baby Blanket! I love the look of this one with the written directions right here. I think this would make a great gift for anyone to keep or pass down. This pattern is well written and if done step by step I'm sure it will work out great. I'm looking forward to making this one. Thank you so much for sharing this free beautiful crochet pattern.

I love this pattern. It's just so different and so very pretty. Done in white it would make a great christening afghan. I also like the fact I don't have to go digging to find the pattern and directions. It's right there. I copied and pasted it in a snap and then I down loaded it to my iPad. Now I can do it whenever.

It would really help a lot if you put spaces between each row.

I think this is one that I might like to try doing for a gift.

I had no trouble with this pattern. I have made many things using this stitch,its very easy once you get it in your head. Just take your time and do it over and over. If you are having trouble with the word"MISS" that means to skip a stitch. I hope that this helps you ....... Patsy( gagirl) Scott

having touble with the bobble don't understand it. HELP
