Here is a photo showing the crocheted box shape before the edges have been whipstitched. You can see that it is shaped like a wide plus sign, with a granny square in the middle. Imagine if the sides were all folded upwards, and then sewn together. Once the edges have been whipstitched, this shape will become a box.
