"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 am always a fan of the motif patterns for so many reasons. They are portable and can easily be modified to bee made the size you want. All you need to consider is the amount of yarn to make that change. This gingham pattern is refreshing in that it allows the option to make those changes. Thanks for the free pattern.

This is a quick and easy way to get the gingham design by creating motifs. I like this motif design because of the design within. This could easily be changed to a blanket for a girl by switching out the blue colors for a pink. If you do not know the gender of the baby, this could be created in shades of orange or green. On the way modern end of the spectrum, white grey and black would be very different.

This is such a cute baby blanket pattern! I see a few comments regarding the number of balls of yarn needed. Usually I will buy extra yarn when I am making a specific project, because this happens to me more often than not that I run out of yarn. This is such a cute pattern, and if you are needing a blanket for a little girl you could just change the colors to a light and dark pink and it would be amazing!

The amount of yarn is completely off. I happened to buy a ball of yarn which had this pattern on the back, and it had the correct quantities 1 ball of white, 2 balls of the darker blue and 3 balls of pale blue.

Hi there, thank you for your comment. I'm going to update this pattern presently so it reflects that amount of yarn, and hopefully those amounts are closer for everyone! Enjoy your day.

Hi, I am halfway through making this now, and am able to get 12 squares out of one ball of yarn, so I think I will only need 2 balls of the pale blue. There is a wonderful pattern for booties on the back of one of my labels which takes one ball of yarn, so I will make a pair to go with the blanket. It is coming out really well, and will be a beautiful present for my new little great nephew due in September.

Lovely, that's good to know! I'm so glad it's turning out so well, and the booties sound like a lovely complementary gift. Happy crocheting!

The Gingham Baby Blanket sounds like a real easy pattern to make. It is made up of several squares and the pattern sounds easy to follow. This would be pretty in green and yellow if you did not know the sex of the baby being born.The pattern is really cute and looks very baby like. This may be one of my projects very soon.

Very disappointed. I ordered the Bernat Baby Coordinates yarn through JoAnn Fabrics online. I completed crocheting Contrast C (white) first (9 motif) Continued to the next Contrast A (Blue Bon Bon) only to discover i would ran out of yarn to finish the required 16 motifs. I only got 15 out of the ball of yarn. What i discovered was the weight I received was only 5 oz not the 5.6 oz as required in the materials section of the pattern. BERNAT BABY COORDINATES balls are only 5 oz not 5.6 oz. There is no way I will get 24 motifs out of Contrast B with one ball of their brand yarn. Very misleading. Greatly disappointed.

Hi Veronica, it's possible the yarn was originally produced in a 5.6oz skein and now comes in just a 5oz, but at the time the pattern was written the yarn still came in the 5.6oz size. Yarn Sub is a great website for finding alternate yarns that might be a great fit. I am sorry to hear this. Please feel free to contact Bernat/Yarnspirations directly about this as well, and they should hopefully be able to help. -Editors of FaveCrafts

Turned out great easy to follow pattern!

Made this one for a friend and his wife who are having their first child and it turned out beautiful. Pattern was easy to follow and fun to make.

Looks lovely, and the colour ways are endless.

That does look really pretty, my next venture is to learn to crochet, I have seen some lovely patterns here.......
