"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."

Light and Lacy Scarf

By: Faith Schmidt for Authentic Knitting Board

Spring is in the air. While the days are getting warmer, the mornings and evenings still carry a chill. This scarf is the perfect answer. It provides just enough weight for those chilly evenings, but is light enough for the warming days of spring. It would make a lovely accessory knitted in springtime pastels. Treat yourself to this lacey, feminine scarf from Authentic Knitting Board.

Materials:

  • Knitting Loom: Small gauge double sided knitting board with at least 21 pegs set at 1/4” spacer setting. The 10” Authentic Knitting Board was used in the sample.
  • Yarn: 220 yards of sport weight yarn. Red Heart Soft Baby was used in the sample.
  • Tapestry Needle
  • Knitting tool
  • Crochet hook
  • Stitch markers (2)


Gauge: 14 stitches and 14 rows on a 4”x 4” swatch in stockinette stitch
Abbreviations: Cast on—CO, Bind off—BO, Knit with stockinette stitch—K
 

Pattern Notes: Making the chevron pattern is very simple. It consists of shifting loops to different needles, wrapping the board, and then picking over. Follow the steps below carefully, and you will be on your way to making chevrons. Once you have gone through the steps once, and see what you are doing, you will find this very easy.

Chevron Patten for Spring Scarf

Chevron Lace Pattern:

  1. The first peg on the left is #1. Move loop #2 to peg #1. Move loop #3 to Peg #2. Move loop #4 to peg #3. Move loop #5 to peg #4. Peg #5 will be empty. Peg #1 will have two loops.
     
  2. Move loop #10 to peg #11 (It is marked with the stitch marker). Move loop #9 to peg #10. Move loop #8 to peg #9. Move loop #7 to peg #8. Peg #7 will be empty. Peg #11 will have two loops.
     
  3. Move loop #12 to peg #11 (It is marked with the stitch marker). Move loop #13 to peg #12. Move loop #14 to peg #13. Move loop #15 to peg #14. Peg #15 will be empty. Peg #11 will now have three loops.
     
  4. Move loop #20 to peg #21. Move loop #19 to peg #20. Move loop #18 to peg #19. Move loop #17 to peg #18. Pin #17 will be empty. Pin #21 will have two loops.
     
  5. Turn the board around and repeat steps 1-4. Each side should look exactly alike.
     
  6. Wrap the board as usual. Lift all the bottom loops over the top loop so that only one loop remains on each peg. Do not pick over the pegs that have only one loop on them. This picture shows a close-up view of what the chevron lace pattern will look like when knitted.  Finished size is 6” x 45”

 

Instructions:

  1. Place a stitch marker on peg #11 (counting from peg #1 on the left).
     
  2. CO on 21 pegs with the stockinette cast on.
     
  3. Row 1 K
     
  4. Row 2 K
     
  5. Row 3 Follow Chevron Lace Pattern

  9. BO both ends. Weave in any loose ends. Add fringe if desired.
