My Crochet Heart Gift Card Holder is a free pattern here on my blog! This beginner friendly Valentine's Day pattern is a quick way to add a handmade touch to your gifts! Scroll down for the free pattern and video tutorial.
Pattern Design + Construction:
This Valentine's crochet project works up so quickly, which makes it perfect for quick gift ideas! This pattern is designed to fit a standard sized gift card, money, a Valentine, small candy, or jewelry! It is the perfect thoughtful gift holder for your true love, best friend, family member, barista, or yourself!
Each Crochet Heart Gift Card Holder consists of one large rectangle crocheted in flat rows and then decreased to a point. The rectangle is folded and seamed together on the sides with a border to create an envelope. The heart is crocheted separately and stitched onto the envelope using a tapestry needle. The finished crochet envelope measures slightly larger than a standard sized gift card. You could easily create a larger envelope by using a larger hook and bulkier yarn.

This free pattern is created using medium Worsted Weight (4) Yarn. I really enjoy designing projects using worsted weight yarn since it wears well while also being soft and cozy. It's the weight of yarn I consistently have on hand in a variety of colors. Below I've listed the specific brands and colors I've used, but you could easily substitute worsted weight as long as the ounces per gram are similar!

Shaping the Envelope & Border:
With the point facing the top, fold the bottom corners up to the 20th row (making a double-sided rectangle with a single triangle top).
Join to the bottom right corner through the front and back of the envelope and begin working a row of single crochet up the side joining the front and back.
When you reach the beginning of the triangle, continue single crocheting up to the point and down the other side.
When you reach the left side of the envelope where the front and back meet, continue to join them together just like the right side.
When you reach the bottom, Chain 1, tie off pulling through the chain stitch to secure.
Weave in the loose ends and trim any excess yarn.
Attach the Crochet Heart Applique:
Using the long tails on your heart applique and a tapestry needle, attach the heart to the front side of the envelope.
Tie off on the inside and trim any excess yarn.
