Here is a pattern for a Little Treasures Envelope to keep all your little treasures in :-) It’s quick and easy and only uses a small amount of yarn. It’s perfect for using up all those little bits of lovely yarn at the bottom of your knitting basket that are too pretty to throw away.
You could make a Little Treasures Envelope to hold a little present you are giving to a friend, like jewellery. You could even use it as a cute “wrapping” if you are giving a Gift Card as a present :-)

Little Treasures Envelope

3.5mm crochet hook
50m (55yds) DK or 8ply yarn
Tapestry needle to weave in yarn ends

NOTE: Even though 8ply or DK weight yarn is suggested you can use any weight yarn and an appropriate hook size to make your Little Treasures Envelope. Heavier weight yarn will make a larger envelope and lighter weight yarn will make a smaller envelope :-)

Tension/Gauge: Exact tension/gauge is not essential to the outcome of this pattern, however I decided that having a tighter tension than usually worked with this yarn weight would be better for this project as it would stop little treasures accidentally falling out of the “envelope” :-)
20 treble stitches & 10 rows = 10cm (4”)

Finished Size: If your tension/gauge is the same as is listed above then your Little Treasures Envelope will be 13cm x 10cm (4” x 5”) when finished.
