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.

  • Cut a 10" piece of black yarn and thread through your darning needle.
  • With black yarn and using your darning needle, work 3 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.

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.

  • When you're done with the 3 French Knots, turn your work inside out and tie a double knot with the two ends of the red yarn to secure.

Note: When working with black yarn, I highly advise you work in a place that has good lighting and it might also be helpful to use a stitch marker on your first stitch of each round. 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 black 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.

  • Round 3-5: sc into each st around. Join to the first st with a sl st, ch 1 (12). [3 rounds]

  • Insert your hook inwards into the top of the hat and catch the chain that's attached to the body to pull it through the top of the hat.
