"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."

50+ Free Easy Crochet Patterns and Help for Beginners




If you're looking for more simple crochet patterns, look no further. Here are 50+ Free Easy Crochet Patterns and Help for Beginners.




  • 2 balls Stitch.Rock.Love. Sheep(ish) Yarn from Caron in Turquoise
  • US I-9 (5.5mm) crochet hook, or size to obtain gauge
  • Yarn needle
  • 2 buttons—1"/25mm diameter (optional)


SIZES:  S/M (L/1X)


FINISHED MEASUREMENTS:  Beanie measures approximately 22 (23 1/2)"/56 (59.5) cm in circumference


GAUGE:  In ribbing pattern, 18 sts = 4"/10cm.



Ribbed Band

Ch 10.

Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each remaining ch across, turn—9 sc.

Row 2: Ch 1, working in front loops only, sc in each sc across, turn.

Repeat last row until piece measures 22 (23 1/2)"/56 (59.5)cm from beginning. Fasten off, leaving a long tail for sewing. Use tail to sew short ends together to form band. Set aside.



Beginning at top of beanie, ch 87 (93); join with sl st in first ch to form a ring, taking care not to twist ch.

Round 1: Ch 3 (dc, ch 2, sc) in same ch as joining sl st (counts as first pattern repeat), *sk next 2 ch, (2 dc, ch 2, sc) in next ch; repeat from * around; join with sl st in 3rd ch of beginning ch-3—29 (31) pattern repeats.

Round 2: Sl st to first ch-sp, ch 3, (dc, ch 2, sc) in first ch-sp, (2 dc, ch 2, sc) in each remaining ch-sp around; join with sl st in top of beginning ch.

Repeat last round until piece measures 11"/28cm from beginning. Fasten off.



Close Top of Hat: At top of hat, bring center front and center back of beanie together. Join yarn with sc, inserting hook through center front and center back (joining front and back at center). Pinch side edges to the same center point and sc the edges together (by inserting hook through both thicknesses and completing a sc). The top of the beanie will now be in a star formation. Continue to pinch opposite edges and sc them together until top of beanie is completely closed. Fasten off.

Attach Band: Using yarn needle, sew band to lower edge of beanie. Sew buttons to band, if desired. Using yarn needle, weave in all ends.

As long as I can recall my Grandmother and Mother always wore a bandana or hat while doing house or yard work. This crocheted hat pattern is very much to my liking for chores.

I like this hat it's great and cute.

I'm working on this right now. I think it would be a little more clear if it had the following: For the body, beginning on Round 2, the pattern should say Sl st to first ch2-sp, etc. instead of just ch-sp.

Hey there - Thanks so much for your feedback! I'm sure fellow crocheters will really appreciate it. Have a great day! - Julia from FaveCrafts

i loved the finished product. but i had to change the pattern up some. the s/m size was way to big and I am 31 and have an average head size. I made it 20" but probably could have made it a little smaller. I took the suggestion of someone elses reply of sc all the way around the one side of the band. instead of 87sc i believe i did 47sc. i used red heart Soft. 4ply worsted weight that also required the same hook size.

Hey there! Thanks for sharing this! I'm sure it will help other crocheters as well. Glad you liked the pattern! --FaveCrafts Editors

I'm confused with how round 2 ends and continues with round 3 on the body.... Is there a video or a different explanation?

And which row is the repeating row?

Some changes to make the pattern easier and better: 1) do the ridge band in BLO instead of FLO - produces a stronger and prettier ridge 2) instead of making 2 separate pieces, simply sc along 1 side of band (after joining the ends), then work beanie pattern from there 3) to close top, simply weave in a piece of yarn all the way around the top, then pull closed tightly (like a draw string). stitch the end of the yarn inside to stop it from unraveling. I made this with these changes and it came out fabulous!

Love the way mine turned out thanks:)

I was loving the look of this but had the same ideas about tweaks so thanks for posting! Looking forward to making this!

I made this hat and got all the way to the end and could not understand the closing of the hat. I am a published designer with Crochet World and have made many difficult crochet items but this one left me completely in the dark. I tried several times and got so frustrated with it that I tore it all out and looked for another pattern. The closing instructions are not clear at all.

Where would I find the Stitch.Rock.Love Sheep(ish) yarn from Caron? I can't find it even online. Somebody help me, please?

But, it is apparently NOT too easy. I hope will have better luck than the previous reviewers!

I finished the ribbed band. Which stitch should I use to sew the ends together?

I'm already start this project except stuck with round 1 and 2. Wish you did provide the video and maybe it will be helpful. So I can complete and looks like this picture. It is frustrating.

The instructions for this pattern aren't very clear. The finishing for the top of the hat doesn't make any sense really. And I'm confused how you attach the band to the hat. Could you possible revise the pattern and post it again?

I'm really having trouble with Round 2 of this pattern. Can anyone help please? Do you really use every chain space? It doesn't look anything like the picture and doesn't create a pattern

I am so lost in the finishing directions and im pretty advanced when it comes to crocheting and knitting...PLEASE HELP!!! I really wanna make this hat.

I'm just starting to learn how to read patterns since I normally just watch tutorials and I am having a little trouble reading Round 1 & 2 of the body. I'm just a little confused. It would help if I could see closer pictures so I can see what it's supposed to look like.

love this stitch!

Help... the FINISHING section needs some pictures to go with! Am having real hard time understanding the Finishing step 1 section, is it just pucker every stitch to the center stitch that was joined, doesn't seem like that would work?

Help! I am having problem with the 'Finishing' portion! Once you sc to connect front/back, do you stitch rem edges together or do you draw them (what's them) ALL to the center sc made to join? Never stumped before on pattern, hoping someone can get me thru step1 of FINISHING! Thanks!! Tammy this video is helping me with this pattern

I'm trying to make this hat and I'm also having problems with row 2. Anyhelp? I'm in the same boat at marisa007. thanks!

@rownbell Thanks for the comment! Just wanted to let you know that I updated the directions. Hope it helps you!

I'm new to crocheting, I've been knitting. Are the instructions to row 2 correct? seems like I'm going to end up w/hundreds of stitches. and now that I've finally got row 1 completed I'm not sure I can see all the V's to go into for row 2. Row 1 turned out kind of scalloped--is that right? it looks good but how many stitches do I have? thanks!

@Marisa007 Thanks for the comment! Just wanted to let you know that I updated the directions. Hope it helps you!

I really like this hat, but am having trouble with the body part of it! I thought I was reading it right, but apparently not... it keeps coming out looking like granny square shells and not at all like the picture. Can anyone help or clarify what I might be missing?

@Tibbles Thanks for the comment! Just wanted to let you know that I updated the directions. Hope it helps you!

I made this hat for my very fashion conscious 20-year-old daughter using Vanna's Choice Lion brand yarn in linen and it was absolutely beautiful. She wore it immediately. It is very flattering and looks even better than the picture here. I am making another for my sister right now!

I didn't mean to say that the picture above is not gorgeous, it is! Just meant that with thicker yarn it looks more like a winter hat and very flattering as well! (=

when making row 2, did you repeat the pattern in every chain? i've been trying to make this hat for the past 3 days and it's not looking right. any insight is greatly appreciated. thanks!

@kmaureli So glad your daughter loved it! Hope your sister did, too! It would be fun to have this hat in several colors so you always have something fun to wear!

Hi! I'm stuck in the FINISHING part! After you join front to back with sc, what do they mean by "pinch side edges to the -same center point- & sc the edges together"?! This is the piece I don't get... I held the remaining edges together and stitched tog down to corner... don't think it's right because instructions say should have star, and then continue pinching opp edges and sc them tog. Any advice is aprpeciated! HELP ready to finish it off my own way... lol...
