EOS Lip Balm Crochet Holder

Sharing is caring!

I think I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve lost my lip balm and wished I had an EOS Lip Balm Crochet Holder. So I finally created a pattern.

Keep those lips kissable and soft with a lip balm keychain! I’m constantly losing my EOS Lip balms and this is a cute and fun way to keep track of them.

Notes for the Crochet EOS Lip Balm Holder:

Feel free to be creative with colors and styles. Below are two themed options: a heart or watermelon. Or you can also do simple solid colors.

When changing colors, work in the last stitch of current color to the last two loops, yarn over with the new color and pull through two loops. Continue to work in new color

This can be used with or without a keychain. 

Leaving a long tail, Foundation Single Crochet 15 (or desired length), fasten off leaving a second long tail. Attach both ends of the strap to the back of your lip balm holder. Fasten off and weave in ends.
