French Knot for the Gingerbread Man’s buttons. You can watch this video tutorial by Mikey from the Crochet Crowd below. 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.

Skill Level

13 stitches and 11 rows = 5 cm in single crochet

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

Weight: 6 grams
Yardage: Approximately 14 m (15.3 yards).


– 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.
