Crochet Gift Card Holder Pattern

Crochet gift card holders are a great way to add a handmade or more personal touch when giving a gift card. I love that the recipient can get exactly what  they want and need and still now I put time and thought into making the gift feel special and personal. The crochet gift card holders I made here are personalized for a baby shower, but with a quick change of yarn color and finishing touches the gift card holders could be embellished to work for any occasion.

Add this pattern to your Ravelry library.


Finished holder is approx 3 ½ in. high by 2 in. wide and should fit standard sized gift cards.


Card Holder Body

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

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

Rounds 2 through 13: Ch 1, work 1 sc in same st as join and each st around, join — 16 sts.

Fasten off.


Crochet Edging 

With a coordinating color yarn, edge the holder as desired. Here are the two edging options I used.

Scalloped Border: 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.

Single Crochet Border: Ch 1, work 1 sc in same st as join and each st around, join.

Fasten off, weave in ends.



To close bottom of holder, turn piece around so that Row 1 is now on top, flatten cylinder; working through the 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.

Now all the is left is to add a little embellishing if desired. Add a pretty bow or ribbon, attach a piece of candy, or any way use wish to personalize your gift card holder. I found these cute little baby decorations on clearance at the craft store.

    What a lovely idea Kara, I love the embellishments you have used and I agree that this would make the gift more personal than slipping a gift card into an envelope. Thanks for sharing x
