Today I am sharing this Santa Knit Gift Card Holder Pattern for my knitting friends! A few weeks back I shared the crochet version here, but I wanted to offer a knit version as well for those of you who prefer to knit (you can also check out my other free knitting patterns here).
Hope you enjoy it!

Finished holder is approx 3 ½ in. high by 2 in. wide and should fit standard sized gift cards.
With red, cast on 22 sts over 3 DPNs or your circular needle, trying to leave a tail of above 6 inches to weave holder closed later. Join to begin working in the round.
Rounds 1 through 10: Knit around.
Round 11: With black, knit around.
Rounds 12 through 20: With red, knit around.

Bind off with eyelash yarn.
