Business Card Case

I got new business cards yesterday to take to TNNA (The National Needle Arts Association) in Phoenix!
 Seeing these I thought I needed a small case to put them in. Why buy one when you can make one?

This would also be great for credit cards, or a small wallet. I made this with maybe 20 yards of Lotus Yarns 100% Bamboo (any other worsted weight yarn would work too) on 4.5mm needles. This was knit on two double pointed needles, in the round. Here are directions on how I made mine. You also need a button and a needle to sew up the button and loose ends. 

CO 34 sts on two needles using Judy’s magic cast on or the turkish cast on

Round 2: *k1, M1, k to 1 st before the end of needle, M1, k1* x2 (38 sts(
Rounds 3-18: k
Round 19: BO 19 sts (needle 1), k 19
Row 20: slip 1, p18
Row 21: slip 1, ssk, k13, k2tog, k1 (17 sts)
Row 22: slip 1, p 16

Row 23: slip 1, ssk, k11, k2tog, k1 (15 sts)
