Make Your Own Handy Crochet Card Holder!
The Adventure of My First Design
The journey to penning down the pattern for my initial design was far from the cakewalk I had imagined. Despite its deceptively simple design, which I had whipped up effortlessly at first, recreating it was a different ball game. Several hours later, after numerous attempts, I settled on a version I was satisfied with. This experience reinforced the importance of jotting down every minute detail – from each stitch, hook size to the type of yarn used. Believe me, no step is too trivial to be overlooked, and yes, you will forget!
Presenting the K-Card Holder
Moving on to the card holder, my premiere crochet design, it remains an integral part of my daily essentials. This nifty card holder easily slips into your pocket, with room for a banknote as well – perfect for individuals who prefer traveling light like me. I’ve recreated it in a beautiful shade of gold, adding a touch of elegance to its practicality.
