Free Tiny Gift Box Crochet Pattern

    This little gift box crochet pattern is a quick and easy project for the holidays. It is about the size of a ring box. I made the gift box as part of my Christmas dollhouse collection. By adding a little toy stuffing and sewing on the lid it could be used for decorating Christmas crafts such as wreaths too. Another use could be a Christmas accessory for Amigurumi toy.

    Gift box description

    The little gift box measures just 4cm x 4cm square. The height it 3cm. As shown in the photo it will easily fit it your hand. You can add toy stuffing and sew the lid on if your using it as a decoration. In this case I didn’t sew my lid on as my children wanted used the gift box as a Christmas play set for their fashion dolls.

    How to crochet a small gift box

    To complete the little gift box crochet pattern I used DK (weight 3) yarn and a 3.5mm crochet hook. I chose to use red and silver but you can of course use any colours you like. There’s minimum sewing involved. To be specific you’ll simply need to sew the ribbon to the lid. The gift box crochet pattern is beginner friendly. You’ll need to know your basic crochet stitches along with being able to work into the back loop and simple increases.

    Pattern notes

    I do not count chains in my stitch count.

    Numbers in brackets are the number of rounds/stitches.

    Stitches separated with a comma are to be made in separate spaces eg. (sc, inc) would mean sc in first stitch then inc in next stitch.
