…etc…

Sides
Rnd 1: Sc in ea sc around but in BACK LOOP ONLY.
Rnd 2 until desired size: sc in ea sc around through both loops.

I used a whole ball of Bernat 100% cotton yarn to make the base of the box and I increased the rectangle size until the last short side was 17 sc in between the corners. This will make a box to place on you bathroom counter that comfortably holds two rows of pads.

If you want a box this size, you’ll need 2 balls of yarn.

Lid
Made exactly as the base but make one round larger before turning the corner to make the sides.
