Guys, this is seriously one of the easiest patterns ever! And, it will give you a chance to test out your tapestry crochet skills. If you need a gift in a hurry, this is the one for you!
I recently released the Mitten Gift Card Holder, and I love this tiny mitten, but I know some people will balk at the thumb shaping. After all, I did make a mitten in miniature, including the way I shape the thumb.
So I wanted to make a gift card holder that was a bit easier, like I did a few years ago with my Last Minute Gift Card Holders. But I didn’t want to use just any stitch, so I decided on a plaid one!
Plaid anything just looks better, right? I sure think so! I am in love with this gift card holder and it already has a gift card for a special teacher in it. Who would you make yours for?
