Crochet Pattern: Hexagonal Nesting Boxes

By Candace – 2 Comments
This pattern is for four pieces – two boxes that fit together one inside the other and two lids. Each piece is crocheted in the round with double crochet stitches. The boxes are naturally soft and flexible, but feel free to starch or stiffen then if you desire. Make the box and lid in different colors to create a unique look. The boxes are the perfect size for storing your crochet notions or small nicknacks. They also make great gifts for others.

    please help!
    I have a round container (gift of cookies) that I want to cover using the nesting boxes pattern. The only problem is that I need to turn the hexagon into a circle so that it will fit. I still want to keep the hexagon center. Is there a formula for rounding out the points on the hexagon? I am looking forward to your reply.

      Hello! I’m not quite sure I understand what you want to do…
      If you want to keep the bottom as a hexagon you can replace the sides with “dc in each dc around” instead of using the rounds with the fpdc.
      If you want to change the bottom into a circle, then you can use this circle tutorial: But you can dc instead of sc (the tutorial is for sc). You’ll start with 12 dc, then work the circle using the same “formula” that’s in the tutorial.
