Featuring Bernat Macramé and Bernat Handicrafter
I loved making the Crochet Cord Nesting Bowl Set, and the medium size quickly found a home on our dining table, holding our coaster collection. But then the napkins needed a home!
So once again I grabbed the Bernat Macramé and Bernat Handicrafter, this time with the goal of making a square box. I took the measurements from the wooden and plastic boxes sold in stores, so it should fit most napkin styles out there. And it’s just a great size to organize lots of stuff, from leftover bits of yarn to the daily mail!
With these yarns you can customize your colors for every room of your home. And you can make it in custom sizes too!
Make Crochet Cord Boxes in Any Size!
If you’re new to crochet, take a close look at the lines of instruction for the bottom rounds of the box. Round 3 can be repeated as many times as desired, to make a box in any size. Stop early or keep going, it’s up to you. Then, keep crocheting straight up the sides to make it as tall as you like! Change colors, use a self-striping yarn, make it your own!

Enclosing Chains and Stitches (in this pattern it’s the macramé cord)
Wrap the end of the macramé cord in a piece of tape to stop it from fraying as you crochet the bowls.
When making the bottom of the box, do not enclose B in the ch-2 at the corners, or in the sc that joins the round. When making the sides, enclose B in each stitch, other than the sl st join.
When making the bottom of the box, each round is joined with a sc, not a slip stitch. The ch-1 and sc in this corner count as the final corner ch-2 sp.
