This is a free elegant gift card holder envelope crochet pattern made with simple basic crochet stitches. This is a great beginner pattern with a video tutorial.
This pattern is the last pattern of the Advent Calendar Mystery Crochet Along. And since it’s Christmas Eve I wanted to make sure the pattern is quick pattern and ideal as a last-minute gift. Crochet this pattern in less than 30 minutes and add a gift card and you are good to go for Christmas. This pattern is the 24th free crochet pattern of the Advent Calendar Mystery Crochet Along.
This elegant and handy gift pattern is the 24th pattern (December 24th) of the 24 patterns. As the gift card holder is an envelope you can easily “write” something on the front by adding surface crochet letters, embroidering on names or sewing on badges, or simply using colorful fabric glue to add pictures or names. Personalize this cute envelope however you want and then add a gift card of your choice to gift it to someone special for the holidays, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, birthday, or any time of the year.
This pattern as all the patterns in this Advent Calendar Mystery Crochet Along comes with a video tutorial to guide you through the pattern. This pattern’s yarn is Vanna’s choice and was provided by Lion Brand Yarns.

First, you’ll start by working from the bottom up in continuous rounds. Next, you’ll work in rows for the flap. Then you’ll finish by adding your button.
Instructions for the Gift Card Holder
R1: starting from the 2nd ch from the hook, 1 sc per ch, turn (15 sts)
You’re now crocheting in rounds around the row you just made, in continuous rounds (see the video tutorial to show this in more detail).
R2-11: 1 sc per sts, turn
Now you’re going in rows for the flap, start at one edge/corner:
R1: 1 sc dec, 1 sc in the next 11 sts, 1 sc dec, turn
R2: 1 sc dec, 1 sc until you have 2 sts left, 1 sc dec, turn
Repeat R2 until you have only 3 sts left, make a decrease through all, then add a loop crocheting a few chains (I made 8 chs) and then sl st back to the top of the flap.
Sew on your button, fasten off and weave in your ends.
