Is it just me or does giving a gift card seem just a tiny bit impersonal? Now don’t get me wrong, I give them often due to convenience and I especially love receiving them… but when time allows I like to add a personal touch to a seemingly impersonal gift. The pattern for this cute little Crochet Gift Card Pouch is SO simple, it took only half an hour to create. I’ve included the free pattern below… enjoy crafting and more importantly, enjoy giving.
CROCHET GIFT CARD POUCH
- Medium Weight Acrylic Yarn in 2 Colors
- Size H Crochet Hook
- Needle for Weaving Ends and Sewing Button
In Main Color, Ch 16.
Row 1. Sc in the 2nd Chain from the hook. Sc in each remaining chain. Ch1, turn.
Rows 2-20. Repeat Row 1 until the piece measures about 6 inches, or double the width of your gift card. Ch1, turn.
Flap: (Insert your hook in the first Sc, yarn over. Insert your hook in the next Sc, yarn over. Pull through all 3 loops. One Sc decrease made. Sc in each stitch across until you have only 2 stitches left. Repeat Sc decrease. Ch1, turn.) Repeat row around 10 times or until you have a row of only 3 stitches.
Buttonhole: Sc in 1st stitch. Ch1, skip one chain. Sc in last stitch. Fasten off.
Edging: In Contrasting Color, Sc around the entire piece. Fasten off. Weave in all ends.
