"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 love this blanket!!! I'm going to try and make it with red heart soft yarn as other reviewers suggested. Can I use an n hook? and since I'm using different yarn can someone tell me how many more chains I should make to help it come out right? THANKS

I've made this blanket many times using the Boucle yarn. Where I had the hardest time was the single crochet in the chains. After that, it was easy. Will make more of this pattern.

I started to make this pattern, new to crochet, and was wondering what the sp means? I thought it meant space, but not sure that makes sense.

what is the answer? towhat does sp mean

@clothes11 and @dtruss70, You are correct; "sp" stands for "space." Happy crocheting! --Editors of FaveCrafts

I don't like to work with Boucle either. I guess we are growing in numbers.

Try a different yarn such as Red Heart medium #4 yarn. It is easier to work with. The only thing is you may need to add a few stitches to get the same size because the yarn is less bulky. It may also take a little more yarn. I do this often because I also do not enjoy working with Boucle yarn.

I don't like crocheting with Boucle" yarn even with the big K hook. I have a hard time seeing the stitches... It's like blind crocheting..for me anyway.
