"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."

The name says it all! Learn how to crochet a poncho FAST using super bulky weight yarn and gorgeous, easy-to-crochet stitches that work up in a jiffy.

From the Designer: "I don’t know about you but I may be, what you’d call, garment avoidant. Don’t get me wrong, I love garments…I love sweaters, wraps, cardigans, kimonos…all of them. And I especially like ponchos. However, I almost never make them because they take FOREVER to finish…and being a plus sized girl, I can never be sure they’re going to fit right. That’s why I designed this fastest and easiest crochet poncho pattern ever.

This pattern works up in a matter of hours and can be easily adjusted for petite or plus sized needs. And, while I don’t usually recommend that crochet sellers make garments (because they’re just not cost effective), this design just might be the perfect addition to your craft fair inventory.

Super bulky, soft, and super-duper cozy, this poncho is the perfect pattern to whip up as a quick gift or something special just for you to wear everywhere….introducing, the Everywhere Poncho.

Are you ready to make your own?"

Easy

Yarn Weight(6) Super Bulky/Super Chunky (4-11 stitches for 4 inches)

Crochet GaugeMid-shell to mid-shell X 3.5 rows = 4” square

Finished SizeOne size fits most.

Materials List

  • 460 yards of super bulky (6) weight yarn. I used Lion Brand Hometown USA (4 oz (113 g) , 64 yds (59 m), 100% acrylic) in the Little Rock Granite colorway.
  • Crochet hook US size P (11.50 mm)
  • Tapestry needle

Notes:

  • Read through the pattern before beginning to ensure you don’t have any questions that might cause frustration in the midst of your project.
  • US Terminology
  • When there is a CH-2 at the beginning of a row/round, it IS counted as a stitch.
  • To increase the width, work starting chain in multiples of 6 + 1.
Special Stitch:

Shell Stitch: 5DC in the same st.

Instructions

With (P) 11.50 mm hook, CH91, turn.

  1. ROW 1:    SK 3 sts (counts as DC), 2DC in 4th CH from hook, *SK 2 sts, SC, SK 2 sts, 5 DC,* repeat from * to * until 3 CH sts remain. SK 2 sts, SC in last st.

  2. ROW 2:    CH3 (counts as DC here and throughout),  turn, 2 DC in 1st st, *SC in middle stitch of shell, 5DC in SC of row below,* repeat * to * until only a half shell remains. SC in the top st of the turning CH.

  3. ROWS 3 -19: Repeat ROW 2.

  4. Add rows if you’d like a longer poncho.

Finishing

  1. Lay the poncho on the floor with the long edge toward you.

  2. Fold from left to right so the fold is on the left side and edges are matched on the right.

  3. Stitch across the top from the matched edges toward the fold, stopping 15” from the fold in order to leave an opening for the neck.
