Playing With Yarn

Last night  I was playing with yarn and worked up these gift card holders. I cannot claim the idea as my own.  I saw the knitted card-igans,  as they are called, on the website and thought they were just tooooo cute.  My samples are done in crochet not knit, but the general idea is the same.

I haven't written up any instructions yet because I'm still in the exploring stage and trying various stitch patterns and yarn weights. The yarn  on the left is a sock weight yarn, the other three are a worsted weight acrylic.

So far I'm liking the card holders with the texture created by the front and back posts double crochet stitches.
