    Size

    This lip balm holder measures approx. 3.7“ (9.5 cm) in height to the top of the hat.


    Yardage

    Weight: 6 grams

    Yardage: Approximately 14 m (15.3 yards).


    Notes

    - You can make the pattern larger or smaller by changing the type of yarn and/or hook size. Depending on the size of your lip balm, lipstick or lip gloss, you might want to add a few rounds of beige in the center to increase height.

    - Numbers at the end of each row (in brackets) indicate the number of final stitches in that row. 

    - Please ensure that your lip balm is the size of the bottom of the holder after round 2.

    - Insert your lip-balm, lipstick or lip gloss into the holder when you get to almost the end to see if you need to add a few rounds to adjust height.

    - We’ll be working in the round, so a stitch marker is advised.

    - Please note that I use US crochet terms.

    Body

    If you'll be using this cozy for lip gloss, then add a second white round of white to make it taller.

    Note: It's best to crochet over your white yarn tail so you don't need to weave it in later.

    • Rounds 7-12: sc into each stitch around (12). [6 rounds]

    Buttons

    • Cut a 10" piece of red yarn and thread through your darning needle. 
    • Using your darning needle, work 2 French Knots in the center of the body one above the other, 2 sts apart. It's best to start with the bottom one first.

    • When you're done with the 2 French Knots, turn your work inside out and tie a double knot with the two ends of the red yarn to secure. 

    Here's the video tutorial by Mikey from the Crochet Crowd. He explains how to make a French Knot. I wrapped my yarn around the needle 3 times as opposed to only twice for the snowman's buttons.

    Hat

    Note: We will be working in joining rounds for the hat, but you're welcome to use the continuous rounds method if you wish.

    • Round 1: With white yarn, start by crocheting 6 sc into a MC. Pull your MC closed (loosely), join to the first st with a sl st, ch 1 (6). Don't close it too tight because we'll be pulling the hanger through this little hole in the end.
