Super Easy Business Card Holder

Inspiration + Design

If you have been following me on social media you’ll know that I released the Beatrice Mini Bag a little while back. I wanted the perfect little holder to put my cards, or maybe some cash and coins in, that would fit perfectly in my new handbag. This card holder was the perfect match to go with it. I now use my Beatrice Mini Bag and Rainbow Card Holder everyday!

Yarn + Hook

This for design I used Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Yarn in Brights colorway.

For the yarn I used my lovely Furls Crochet Odyssey hook. You guys have probably heard me brag enough about this hook brand. What are you waiting for? Go get one!

  1. In row 2, what is “BLO?”
    Thank you.

    1. Hi Rebecca,

      Thank you so much for catching my error. I have updated the blog and PDF pattern to include the abbreviation for BLO, which is means you will work in the Back Loop Only.

      Thank you,
      Ashley
