Crocheted Business Card Holder {Free Pattern}


I just got my business cards for my new Etsy shop and of course I needed a card holder.  So, I decided to make one.  And why not crochet one?  You want to make one?  Here's a free pattern just for you.

Supplies:
Yarn (I used cotton, but you can use whatever you prefer, but something you can use with a small hook)
4 mm crochet hook
Buttons to match

Abbreviations:
ch- chain
sc- single crochet
st- stitch
FO- finish off

Row 1: chain 16
2-21: ch 1, sc into each st. (at the end of the 21st row put a st marker)
now the flap- 22-26: ch 1, sc into each st.
27: ch 1, sc into the first 2 st, ch 2, skip next 2 st, sc into the next 6 st, ch 2, skip 2 st, sc to the end (the ch 2 and st you skip are to make a button hole, you can make them as big or as small as you need)
28-29: ch 1, sc into ea st, FO
Fold in half so the first row comes to the st marker, then sew up the sides, turn inside out, then add your buttons

And there you have it!
