"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."

Sugar Twist Knit Hat

By: Tina Melvin for Life in the Round

This sugar twist hat is named for its close resemblance to sugary cotton candy! This free knitting pattern is the sweetest way to cozy up this winter. Make gifts for your friends or simply sport it yourself.

Sugar Twist Knit Hat

Materials:

  • Malabrigo Gruesa (100% Wool; 3.5 oz; 65 yds)
    • #100 Rosa Viejo, 2 skeins (if you make a smaller version you could get away with 1 skein)
  • Needles: 1 set US 10 (6.0mm) dpns & one 16 in. circular needle
  • Cable needle
  • Stitch markers,
  • Tapestry needle

Gauge:
10 sts & 18 rows = 4 in. in reverse stockinette st (that's where the right side of the work is the purl side, just in case ;)

Size: this fits 21 in. head nice and snug; any adjustments to the stitch count will alter the look of the cable, but if you do need to add or subtract stitches, I would do that evenly throughout the purl sections.

Note: Pattern edited to make the hat longer. If you have short/thin hair, go with the fewer rows. If you have long/thick hair, definitely add the extra rows.

Instructions:

CO 60 sts.

Place marker(pm) and join yarn (and yes, be careful not to twist), then K2, p2 across all sts. Repeat for 4 rows total.

Row 1: P10, pm, K10, pm; repeat to end of row

Row 2: P10, slip marker (sm), K10, sm; repeat to end of row

Repeat Row 2 eight/ten more times.

Cable Row: *P10, slip 5 st to cable needle(cn), hold in front of work, K5 sts, K5 sts from cn; repeat from * to end of row.

Repeat Row 2 for ten rows.

Decrease Rows:

Row 1: P8, P2tog, sm, K8, SSK, sm; repeat to end of row.

Row 2: P9, sm, K9, sm; repeat to end of row.

Row 3: P7, P2tog, sm, K7, SSK, sm; repeat to end of row.

Row 4: P8, sm, K8, sm; repeat to end of row.

Row 5: P2tog, P to 2 st before m, P2tog, sm K2tog, K to 2 st before m, SSK, sm; repeat to end of row.

Row 6: Purl the purls, knit the knits ;)

Row 7: Repeat Row 5

Row 8: Repeat Row 6

Row 9: P2tog twice, K2tog, SSK; repeat to end of row.

Row 10: Repeat Row 6

Row 11: P2tog, K2tog; repeat to end of row.

Break yarn and weave in ends. Wear with love!
