Bead Stitch Crochet Gift Card Case
This crochet gift card case is perfect for gifting your gift cards on birthdays and Christmas. It’s a great stash buster for cleaning up those small amounts of yarn while making something you and the recipients can use over and over again.
I used a solid color throughout, but this stitch pattern also looks good in a striped design. If making a gift card holder for the year end holidays you could try your favorite festive colors. You can bookmark this free crochet pattern to have it handy for when you need it.
The Stitch Pattern
This pattern is worked in the bead stitch, which is a small bobble made on the front of the fabric. To make the stitch insert your hook as if to make a single crochet. Draw up a loop and pull it through only one loop on the hook, two times. Then wrap the yarn again and pull through both loops.
The stitch pattern leaves the card sleeve on the bulky side, but I’m sure you won’t mind because it gives the case a nice texture.
This small pouch is closed with a button that is attached after crocheting is done.
The finished size is just big enough to hold your credit cards. It fits nicely inside a clutch, a side pocket in a big bag, or even inside a coat pocket.
I used Red Heart Comfort, a worsted weight yarn and a 4.5 mm crochet hook. The hook is much smaller than recommended by the yarn label, but it makes for a nice sturdy case!
If you need to substitute with yarn, you can. The super saver is a tad bit thinner than the comfort, but it might work just as well.
In addition to the yarn, you will also need a button to match.

- For this pattern it is important that you keep the seam straight. I make a really tight slip stitch join, which generally results in a straight(er) seam.
