Hello, hi and welcome back! I'm excited to share my Heart Envelope Valentine Crochet Pattern! 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 crocheted heart envelope is comprised of one large rectangle decreased to a point that is then folded and seamed together on the sides with a border. The heart is crocheted separately and stitched onto the envelope with a tapestry needle. The finished envelope measures slightly larger than a standard sized gift card. You could easily create a larger project by using a larger hook and thicker yarn.

How to Crochet a Heart:

Tie off with a long tail and pull through that chain 1 to secure.
Pull the loose end of the magic circle tight, creating the heart.
Tie both tails together on the back to secure.

Tie off and pull through the chain stitch to secure.
Shaping the Envelope:
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.
Chain 1, tie off pulling through the chain stitch to secure.
Weave in the loose ends and trim any excess yarn.
Attach the Heart:
Using a tapestry needle and the long tail we left on the heart, stitch the heart onto the front side only of the envelope. Tie off and trim any excess yarn.
I hope you have enjoyed crocheting this Heart Envelope with me!
