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.
Hope you enjoy it!
Santa Knit Gift Card Holder Pattern
Here is what you need:
- red and black worsted weight yarn
- glittery eyelash yarn (<-affiliate link)
- Size 8 US/5 mm double pointed needles (DPNs; or circular needles for the magic loop method)
- gold crochet thread (<-affiliate link)
- tapestry needle, scissors
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.
Round 21: With glittery eyelash yarn, knit around.
Bind off with eyelash yarn.
Flatten cylinder and using your long beginning tail and a tapestry needle, sew bottom of holder (Round 1) closed. 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.
