Say you have someone on your Christmas list, maybe your mother-in-law who lives in Florida. This person is impossible to shop for in general; lives in a warm climate, so sweaters/hats/scarves are out; and worst of all, she’s gluten-intolerant, so you can’t even go with the fallback of a big box of Christmas cookies. You realize that the only way you’re both going to get through this gifting season is with a gift card, but dang it, you love to give handmade gifts. Solution: gussy up that gift card with a hand knitted gift card holder! You get to make something, impossible-giftee gets a gift card, there are no huffy silences at the Christmas dinner table. Win-win-win.

This gift card holder is worked in the round, beginning at the bottom edge. The front features a charted cable panel and the back is stockinette. At the top, the front stitches are bound off and a flap with a buttonhole is worked over the back stitches.

When working the chart, read each row from right to left as if a RS row.

Note: The original chart was incorrect on Row 19. It’s been fixed as of 11/10/2015 and there is a link to the mistake in “errata” above.
