Here's a cute and quick free pattern! I just got my business cards and decided I needed a cute holder :) It's a simple pattern that can be easily finished in 1 - 2 hours. Download PDF

Business Card Cozy


35 yards of any fingering/sport weight yarn

This project is knit in the round using the magic loop, starting at the bottom and working up.

CO a total of 36sts (18sts per needle) using Judy’s Magic Cast On.
Knit in the round for 4” (place a marker at the beginning of the round)
On the last round slip the very last stitch purlwise – do not knit it.
BO 24sts purlwise fairly snug, slip the last BO stitch back to LN and k2tog, k5 and continue to BO purlwise to EOR. Cut yarn

There should still be 6 sts remaining on your needle.
