"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."

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

When you say this comes together quickly, about how fast would you say that is? I'm not expecting miracles, just curious for an estimate on total time spent making this. Thanks!

Hi there! I checked with our resident knitting expert and she estimates 1-3 weeks! I hope that helps!

Your needle size notation on the pattern is very misleading, it says 10 mm but the pattern calls for a 15 mm, according to red heart. I think someone confused us 15 with 15 mm. The US size for this needle would in fact be US 19.

Hi Lisa! Thank you for telling me! I'll make that adjustment right now. I appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment! Enjoy your day!
