Saturday Scraps – Crocheted Card Case

Just a little amusement I crocheted while I was waiting for some yarn to arrive, a card case using the crochet knit stitch similar to the Prairie Pioneer Bag Pattern.

We bought a new set of Lexicon cards as I decided it was best to preserve the old one as a ‘family heirloom’!

I used Patons Washed Cotton DK, which gives a lovely vintage effect and crochets and knits beautifully.

      Thanks, it’s still not helping me win any more games though!!

  2. Your card case is lovely, and it intrigued me to see a stitch I’d not done before, too, so thanks for that πŸ™‚
    I’ve just searched on youtube and found a video tutorial to give it a go πŸ™‚

      Thank you πŸ™‚ I found the stitch in a vintage crochet book, so now you can knit, by crocheting!

      1. That’s what I thought when I saw your post πŸ™‚
        Yay! Lol

          Just make sure you don’t do the stitch too tightly, it can be a bit fiddly sticking the hook in the right place!!

          1. Thankfully, I crochet quite loosly, so it shouldn’t be too much of a problem, thanks πŸ™‚
