    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 white 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.

    Note: It's best to crochet over your red & white yarn tails so you don't need to weave them in later.

    • Slip stitch to join, do not cut white yarn & continue to hanger.

    Hanger

    • Continuing with white yarn, chain 30.

    Stitching Ladybug's Stripe

    Now we'll be stitching a perpendicular straight line from the bottom to the top of the ladybug's body. 

    Cut about an arm's length of black yarn + some extra. Thread it through your darning needle.

    easy crochet ladybug pattern

    Insert your darning needle through the top opening of the body and out from Round 3 at the bottom center of your ladybug (so that handle is positioned on the side of the ladybug)..

    easy crochet ladybug

    Insert your needle into the body 3 rounds upwards in a perpendicular line and immediately outwards from the body another 3 rounds above. Pull your black yarn through to form a vertical line.

    Insert your needle back into the same stitch where the black yarn came out from 3 rounds below and outwards 6 rounds above. You should come out just below the white rim. Gently pull through to form second section of the line.

    Insert your needle back into the same stitch where the black yarn came out from 3 rounds below and outwards 2 sts to the left & 2 upwards at a diagonal to start forming the first dot.

    Your center stripe is now complete and your needle is positioned to start the first dot.

    Stitching Ladybug's Dots

    Continue with the rest of the black yarn on your needle and stitch 3 dots on either side of the stripe. 

    how to crochet a ladybug keychain

    I started from Round 11 at the top and ended at round 4 near the bottom.

    Each stitch should be a diagonal line from one round to the one below. Then repeat with another line to double it up. Before you finish the doubling up, come out of the body where you want to start your second dot.

    Leave a gap of 3 Rounds between each 2 dots vertically and shift them one dot horizontally so they're not exactly on top of each other.

    Repeat this process for all 6 dots.

    Come out at the top of your lip balm holder when you're done and weave in your end on the inside of the lip balm holder to secure.

    Head

    Note: We will be working in continuous rounds for the head, so using a stitch marker is advised to keep track of your stitches. Good source of light is advised for working with black yarn.

    • Round 1: With black yarn, start by crocheting 6 sc into a MC. Pull your MC closed tight (6).

    • Remove your stitch marker & join to the first stitch of this round. Try the seamless join for a clean finished look.
    • Weave in ends with your darning needle and cut off excess yarn.

    Eyes

    • Attach eyes of choice in the middle of the head between rounds 2 & 3 with one stitch in between. Here are some options:

    If you decide to use black Trimits Toy Eyes (safety eyes), I would suggest adding a stitch of white yarn on the eyes to make them show better. Using a small circle of white felt under the eyes is another option.

  • I loved making this Ladybug Lip Balm Holder. The pattern was very well written and easy to follow. I used white felt behind the eyes, as I felt this was the easiest way for me and made the eyes pop. Works up very easily.

  • This is the first of the three that I’ve made and I absolutely loved it. The pattern is well written and the pictures were super helpful. The tips on using safety eyes were super helpful. I added white around the eyes so that way they were easier to see!
