Crochet Box

#7 crochet hook

Make the sc in the back loop only for the whole pattern.

Box Base
Ch 2, 4 sc in 2nd ch from hook
Rnd 1: 3 sc in each sc around (12 sc)
Rnd 2: sc in next sc, (3 sc in next sc, sc in next 2 sc)3 times. 3 sc in next sc, sc in next sc (20 sc)
Rnd 3: sc in next 2 sc, (3 sc in next sc, sc in next 4 sc)3 times. 3 sc in next sc, sc in next 2 sc (28 sc)
Rnd 4: sc in next 3 sc, (3 sc in next sc, sc in next 6 sc)3 times. 3 sc in next sc, sc in next 3 sc (36 sc)

Rnd 6: sc in next 5 sc, (3 sc in next sc, sc in next 10 sc)3 times. 3 sc in next sc, sc in next 11 sc (52 sc)
Change to main colour or don’t, it’s up to you.
Rnd 7 decrease: Skip one sc, (sc in next 12, skip one sc)3 times. sc in next 12 sc. (48 sc)

Box Sides
10 rounds sc in ea sc around, no joining.
*because I will be opening and closing this box frequently, I wanted a bit of a looser fit for the lid. I did Round 7 differently but you don’t have to. Round 7: skip 1 sc, (sc in next 11 sc, skip 1 sc)3 times, sc 11 (44 sts)
Do remaining 3 rounds sc in each sc.

Rnd 10: sc in 44 sc, sl st last 4 sc. Weave in end.
*Unless you did my optional rnd 7, then it would be sc in 40 sc, sl st last 4 sc. Weave in end.

Lid bobble handle
Not knowing how to do this properly, I went with what I knew.
Ch 3, then sc in ea ch starting from 2nd chain from hook.
(ch 1, sc in each sc, turn)7 times. Sew to top of lid.

NOTE: This pattern does not do well if you replace the sc with hdc or dc.
