Gift Card Holder Patterns

Here’s what you need:

  • worsted weight wool yarn
  • H hook
  • tapestry needle, scissors

Click here to reference the Crochet Abbreviations Chart.

Finished holder is approx 3 ½ in. high by 2 in. wide

 

Solid Holder with Scalloped Border

Special Stitch:

Long single crochet (Lsc): Insert hook into stitch of previous row. Draw up a loop to height of current row being worked, complete as single crochet (the Lsc takes the place of the next stitch in the current row).

Ch 16, Sl st in furthest ch from hook to form a ring, do not turn.

Rounds 1 through 13: Ch 1 (does not count as st here and throughout), work 1 sc in same st as join and each st around — 16 sts.

Round 14: Ch 1, beginning in same st as join, *work 1 sc, ch 3, skip next st, rep from * around ending with a slip st in first sc of round.

Fasten off.

To close bottom of holder, turn piece around so that Row 1 is now on top, flatten cylinder; working through both the top and bottom unused loops of the beginning chain, pull up yarn in first loops, ch 1, work 1 sc in same loops and each pair of loops across.  Fasten off and weave in ends.

If desired, weave a length of yarn in a coordinating color through the stitches of Round 13 and tie a pretty little bow in the front.

 

Multicolored Spiked Holder

With CA, ch 16, Sl st in furthest ch from hook to form a ring, do not turn.

Rounds 1 and 2: Ch 1 (does not count as st here and throughout), work 1 sc in same st as join and each st around — 16 sts.

Round 3: Join CB, ch 1, beginning in same st as join, *work 1 sc, 1 Lsc in next st one row below, rep from * around, join — 16 sts.

Rounds 4 through 12: Repeat sequence of Rounds 1 through 3.

Round 13: Continuing with CB, ch 1, working back along sts just made, work 1 rev sc in each st around — 16 sts.

Fasten off.

To close bottom of holder, turn piece around so that Row 1 is now on top, flatten cylinder; working from left to right and through both the top and bottom unused loops of the beginning chain, pull up yarn in first loops, ch 1, work 1 rev sc in same loops and each pair of loops across. Fasten off and weave in ends.

    Hi Kara,
    Beautiful card holders! I liked the red one most:) thanks for sharing the pattern!
    Yes, there is no limit to how we can personalise gifts and especially in crochet there are unlimited possibilities.
    I too made some crochet items as gift for my hubby’s Birthday. Do check my latest post. I am not an expert like you but now I feel I have made a bit of progress making something on my own:)

    wonderful way to make “personal” something that seems impersonal…but I guess that the preferred gift by many, right? Really, really cute!

    Love these, and I’m already on my 3rd one. My family loves getting gift cards, so guess what they’re all getting on the tree this year!

    I have made lots of similar gift card holders and tied them to the arms of small stuffed animals/toys. Hope to sell a few of them at craft fairs in November.
