Credit or Gift Card Case

Here is a very simple crochet pattern for a credit card case. You can use it for your credit and other convenience cards, or use it to wrap up your gift cards.

Originally I made this with Patons Canadiana and a size 5mm hook. But after using it for a bit the case stretched out a lot making it awkward and unsafe to carry around with all my credit cards. So for the second one I decided to use a smaller hook and thicker yarn and it came out perfect! I used a 4.50mm hook and Red Heart Comfort.

This credit card sleeve is worked in a round, eliminating the need for sewing seams once completed. This may be confusing to some, so I created a photo tutorial on how to mark the rounds in order to avoid gaining excess stitches in the rounds.

As for keeping the seams straight, please refer to this tutorial if you run into problems with it going off track. It’s important the seam remains along the side otherwise the top part will be out of whack.

Also, please excuse the dirty button in the image. I bought a huge bag of used buttons several years ago, and I’m still picking through them. Even though I still have lots left, the pickings for good ones are getting pretty slim.

    1. Yes it should be fairly easy to do. Simply increase the beginning chains in any multiple of two, then continue with more rounds until it is high enough. Hope it works out good for you. :)
