Who says gift cards can't be fun?! Especially if given in this cute crochet Santa holder! Free pattern too ... #crochet #Christmas #Santa #giftcardholder

I am so excited to share today’s pattern … this adorable Santa crochet gift card holder! Awhile back I shared my patterns for these basic crochet gift card holders here and here. And when I saw how Nicole Gerbe added a Santa twist to the pattern with her gift card holder project here on Ravelry, I knew I wanted to share her idea with all of you as well. So with her permission, I worked up a pattern for you to make one too. Hope you enjoy it! Thanks so much Nicole for the inspiration!! Click here for a knit version of this pattern.

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


With red, 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.

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, Sl st in each pair of loops across. Fasten off and weave in ends. Now grab your needle and gold crochet thread and stitch a little square in the center of your black row for a belt buckle embellishment.

    Thanks for the free pattern! I featured this pattern link and post on my blog after being inspired to change up the colors a bit and do something a little less traditional, and a little more girly.
    Happy Holidays!
