Crochet Envelope Pattern

Begin with a long 24″ (61cm) tail.

Row 1: Make 23 FHDC. Ch 1. Turn

Row 2-16: HDC in each stitch. Ch 1. Turn = 23 HDC

Row 17: HDC in the next 19 stitches. Chain 2. Skip 2 stitches. HDC in last 2 stitches. Chain 1. Turn. (this row makes the button hole).

Row 18: HDC in the next 19 stitches. 2 HDC in the Chain 2 space, HDC in last 2 stitches. Chain 1. Turn.

Row 19. HDC in each stitch. Fasten off, weave in this end, but not the long, starting tail.

Use the long starting tail to form the envelope, using the photo tutorial below.

Sewing the Envelope

Thread the needle back to the center of the 3 corners and attach the button.
