The Heart Crochet Envelope is a free pattern. The pattern uses a fun C2C stitch. It has a heart design and button to tie it all together for Valentine’s Day.
The surprise sat solemnly on the table out in the open with the deliberate intention that it would be obvious to anyone walking by. And so, unsurprisingly, he noticed it right when he walked inside – a simple crochet envelope with a heart on it. Weary from exhaustion, he couldn’t help but smile to himself without even seeing what was inside. It didn’t matter what it was, but rather the thought behind it.
I love giving surprises. How fun it is to plan a surprise and watch the person receive it! Whether it’s a small gesture or a bigger present, nothing beats that endorphin rush. Enjoy surprising someone yourself by using this pattern. You can use this crochet envelope to wrap little things in. Whether it’s a card, letter, note, or a small gift.

What to use crochet envelope for?
This pattern is so cute and perfect for pretty much anyone. It is simple to make but would mean the world to the recipient. The thought that is behind gifting something handmade is priceless. It shows someone how much they mean to you.
Even if you buy a card in-store, you can still add a special touch. Crochet this cute heart envelope and put the card inside. Whether it is your boyfriend, husband, mom, or daughter, they will be delighted with such a thoughtful gift.
I used Premier Deborah Norville Everyday yarn. However, you could use any other yarn. This crochet envelope would be a great stash buster pattern too! Just be aware to use a smaller or larger hook (depending on which yarn you pick). Also, keep in mind that the envelope either shrinks or gets bigger than what I wrote it for. So cute though, right 🙂

Crochet Envelope Instructions
This pattern uses the C2C stitch (Corner to corner) by using hdc’s. If you have never done a C2C, I highly recommend you watch the video tutorial below.
Using 2 color and half double crochet (hdc), make a C2C square of 20×20 squares/tiles. I started on the right bottom corner, but it actually really does not matter where you start as long as you know how to do a C2C.
Fasten off, leaving long yarn tail, weave in all other ends, fold 3 corners inwards to a point and sew the side together leaving an opening as the picture shows. Picture on the left shows the crochet envelope before sewn together and the right side shows sewn together and turned right side out (sewn parts are inside).
Then add a button and attach the yarn of the oak heather color on the tip of the envelope flap and make a chain as long as needed depending on the button you use and reattach at the same spot as the starting point. So the loop needs to be long enough that it goes around your button.
Once you have done that, you are done with your Heart Envelope 🙂
Corner to Corner Video Tutorial
Here is the video tutorial how to make a C2C (includes increases and decreases). It is the fun stitch I used for my crochet heart envelope.
During the video, I show how to do the C2C using double crochet and for the decreases I used single crochets on the sides, but for the envelope, I used half double crochet and for the decreases, I used slip stitches. Just keep that in mind when watching the video.
