My messy friend needed a place to put all his credit cards, since he normally leaves them laying all over his desk, so here is the cardholder that I made for him, which of course can be used for business cards and cash as well.

The cardholder is super easy and fast to make. I think this might be my record for the shortest pattern ever :lol

Skill Level:
[IMG]http://www.crochetspot.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/01-beginnersmall.jpg[/IMG]

Finished Size: 5 1/2” (14 cm) wide when opened, 3 ¾” (9 cm) tall

Materials:
Medium Weight Yarn
Crochet Hook (3.25mm)
Yarn Needle
[IMG]http://www.crochetspot.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/4-mediumsmall.jpg[/IMG]

Gauge:
17 sc = 3’’
8 rows = 2’’
Gauge Swatch: 3’’w x 2’’h (7.5cm x 5cm) ch 18.
Row 1: sc in second ch from hook and in each ch across
Row 2 – 8: ch 1, turn, sc in each sc across
Finish off.

Crochet Pattern: Cardholder
Row 1: ch 21, sc in second ch from hook, sc in each ch across
Row 2 - 48: ch 1, sc in each sc across
Finish off

Using Photo as a guide, sew in both sides 2 1/4″ (6 cm) with a yarn needle.

For additional design, you may like to change colors after each row to create stripes!


Update: More cardholder pics :)

This is a great idea and I am making 2 for ME... one is for my credit cards and another color is for all the business cards I get from Doctors, hairdresser, mechanic, etc. This way my wallet will stay cleaner and more organized and all won't get lost. Thanks !!! :clap
