"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."

Materials:
Step-by-step photos are in Red Heart® Boutique Sashay Sequins™ Panda

 

  • 4 skeins Red Heart® Boutique Sashay Sequins™ yarn in Concord
  • Clipboard (to hold the yarn while knotting)

 

 

Instructions:
Scarf measures 6½” (16.5 cm) wide x 69” (175 cm) long.

  1. Cut 16 strands of yarn, each 4 yards long.

Row 1 of Knots

  1. Hold 4 strands together and make an overhand knot 6” from the ends. Make a loop and pull ends through the loop, Photo A and B.  Repeat for three more groups of 4 strands.

  2. Place the four knots in the clipboard in preparation for the next row of knots.
     

Make Butterfly Bobbins

  1. In order that strands do not get tangled, make a butterfly bobbin with each strand of yarn (16 bobbins). This may seem like a lot of winding, but it is necessary to prevent tangles of yarn.
     
  2. Starting near the knot, wrap yarn in a figure eight around fingers.

  3. When you have an end of about 18”, pinch center of wraps, remove from fingers, and wrap the loose end firmly around center of figure eight; pull end through the center wraps to hold. You will be able to pull more yarn from the bobbin as needed while doing your knotting.

  4. For row 2, hold two strands from first knot and two strands from second knot together; make an overhand knot about 2 inches down from first row of knots.
     
  5. Make two more knots in this row using adjacent strands from second and third knots; and then using strands from third and fourth knots. You will continue to use pairs of strands from adjacent knots throughout the scarf.  Note that the first two pairs of strands and the last two pairs of strands are not knotted in this row. There are 3 knots in this row.

  6. For row 3, knot pairs of strands together, starting with first two pairs and continuing across row. You will have 4 knots in this row.

  7. For row 4 to row 22, repeat Rows 2 and 3 for 22 rows. Even number rows will have 3 knots and odd number rows will have 4 knots. (If you end sooner, you will need to end with a 4 knot row, like row 3.)
     

Finishing

  1. Trim fringe at each end.

Wow! This is something different. Not knitted or crocheted. It's about working the yarns to make this beautiful scarf. Thanks for the pattern and the diagram.
