Real Size Envelope

Real Size Envelope

Wanted to have a crochet envelope for a paper birthday card I bought. So I took the paper envelope (DIN C6 = 4.5 x 6.4 inches) and opened it in order to measure it.


Then I started to crochet. And this is how I did it:

You need thick cotton yarn (I used G-B Schulgarn) and a 5.00 mm Tunisian crochet hook.

Gauge: 14 stitches = 4 inches/10 cm

ch 30 and work a total of 27 rows in tss

Your rectangle should measure  22 cm/8.7 inches x 18 cm/7 inches

Now you start decreasing. I made 7 rows with each a decrease on the left side. (You decrease in the forward pass by simply pulling the yarn trough the last two stitches at once.)

Now you’re done. Leave a long tail for sewing. Now you can fold your envelope and sew the sides to the bottom part.

Time to be creative! Add apliques or embroidery to your envelope to make it a nice present for someone you love!
