FREE Gift or Credit Card Sleeve Crochet Pattern
Crochet this for your own credit and debit cards, or use it to give away your gift cards during the holidays. Not only is it a good wrapping sleeve, but it’s something the recipient can re-use over and over again.
It’s a pretty, yet simple stitch pattern that will look great in any colors including Christmas colors. And best of all, you only need a small amount of yarn, thus making it for a nice stashbuster as well.
