"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."

  • Lace Loom, set to 3”.
  • Yarn needle.
  • GAUGE: 16 sc = 4 inches at center of strip.

CHECK YOUR GAUGE: Use any size hook to obtain gauge.
NOTE: To avoid joining yarn in the middle of a strip, start a new skein after making 2 strips.
Stole: 5 strips of hairpin lace with 240 lps on each side of strips.
Finish Strips: When 240 lps are made and before taking loops from loom, ch 10. Now slide all loops from loom and work as follows: Insert hook through first 5 lps and work 1 sc, *ch 6, 1 sc in next group of 5 lps, repeat from * to end of strip, ch 10, 1 sc in center of hairpin lace strip, ch 10, and work up other side of strip the same as the first side, ch 10, and sl st in center of strip. Fasten off. Repeat for rem 4 strips.

This Hairpin Lace Shawl is perfect for the warm months as the design is airy and loose. This will also great in solid vibrant, pastel or earth colors. You can make it wider, lengthier, it's up to you.

What a beautiful pattern!

There should be a more practical picture of the object. That way we can see if we would like to make it. This way I don't even know what it's supposed to look like when done.
