The Plaid Gift Card Cozy is worked from the Top-Down. Begin working the band in rows from the side across. Join the band and work the plaid pattern in rounds around the band. Sc together to seam the bottom of the cozy. Add a tassel and wooden bead on a string for hanging.


The chart is read from right to left for each round. Each box indicates 1 half double crochet stitch. Change the colour on the slip stitch join. Do not cut colours; pick up and drop off as you go. When changing colours throughout the round, work the last yarn over of the last stitch with the next colour. Float the colour not being used behind the work rather than crocheting over it.

Worked in Multiples of 6 – Refer to the written pattern

I’m so happy with how my Christmas Tree turned out. I added wooden bead garland and a few pinecone ornaments. Not only do these ornaments look beautiful on a Christmas tree, but they make the perfect present toppers as well. The decorations vary in skill level, and some can be made with no crochet experience. That way, the entire family can get involved. I used my Easy C2C Blanket for my Tree Skirt and the plaid blanket will be coming to my shop soon. If you love my Christmas Sweater you can get it HERE and my skirt HERE.
