Crochet Boxes Tutorial

 Crochet Boxes Tutorial



Rnd 1: This box can be created in many different sizes.

Small box: H hook, H hook for all size just go up an increased round to make your box container bigger, medium worsted yarn

Rnd 1: ch 2, or create a magic circle, work 7 sc inthe 2nd chain from the hook, or 7 sc in the magic circle, sl st to join. 

Rnd 2: ch 1, work 2 sc in the same stitch, 2sc in each stitch around, sl st in the sc to join. -14 sc

Rnd 3: ch 1, work sc in the same stitch as the ch 1, *work 2sc in the next stitch,  sc in the next stitch, *Repeat around, sl st in the sc to join. -21 sc

Rnd 4: If you would like your box this small then stop here or continue on.

ch 1, work sc in the same stitch as the ch 1, sc in th next stitch, *work 2sc in the next stitch,  sc in the next two stitches, *Repeat around, sl st in the sc to join. -28 sc

Medium Box: ch 1, work sc in the same stitch as the ch 1, sc in th next two stitches, *work 2sc in the next stitch,  sc in the next three stitches, *Repeat around, sl st in the sc to join. -35 sc

Large Box: ch 1, work sc in the same stitch as the ch 1, sc in th next three stitches, *work 2sc in the next stitch, sc in the next four stitches, *Repeat around, sl st in the sc to join. -42 sc

If you would like a larger container box, then continue on with increased rounds, by adding one more sc in each round before you crochet an increase.

Now you will create a border wall of the box, this appllies to any size box:

Ch 1, sc in each front loop around, sl st in the beginning sc.

Rnd 2- to desired height of your box, sc in each sc around, NOT in the front loop unless you want a ridge effect, no more sl st, you will work in continual rounds, so use a stitch marker so you will know where you left off. In the photo I went around for 8 rounds for the border. Then sl st around in the last round. Fasten off and Weave in your ends.

The lid top the box: Go up a hook size, I hook

After you finished the size of the round of your box container than for a lid you would have to add one more increased round. So for example, you created a small box, Then add one more increased round, If this was your last round for the box, ch 1, work sc in the same stitch as the ch 1, sc in th next stitch, *work 2sc in the next stitch,  sc in the next two stitches, *Repeat around, sl st in the sc to join. -28 sc

Then you will add one more round for the lid so it goes over the box, ch 1, work sc in the same stitch as the ch 1, sc in th next two stitches, *work 2sc in the next stitch,  sc in the next three stitches, *Repeat around, sl st in the sc to join. -35 sc

Now you will create a edge for the lid.

Ch 1, sc in each front loop around, sl st in the beginning sc.

Rnd 2-3: to desired height of your box lid, sc in each sc around, NOT in the front loop unless you want a ridge effect, no more sl st, you will work in continual rounds, so use a stitch marker so you will know where you left off. In the photo I went to about 2 rounds for the border wall. Then sl st around in the last round. Fasten off and Weave in your ends. Follow me on Social Media
