This simple crochet chapstick holder is one of the most functionable things I’ve ever made and one of my most favorite designs. Using cotton yarn and a smaller hook to maintain a tight gauge, it will last forever and keep your chapstick safe. I encourage you to make one for all your friends! I hope you enjoy this pattern ;)
15 yards of WeCrochet Dishie or any other worsted weight cotton yarn
Size E (3.5 mm) crochet hook
One key ring
Ruler to check gauge
In order to ensure that the Chapstick tube fits snuggle into its holder, I suggest achieving the recommended gauge.
6 sts and 6 rows = 1 inch in single crochet

Because of how small this holder is, I recommend weaving in the starting tail within the first couple of rounds, instead of waiting till the end of the project.
This holder is worked in a spiral, do not slip stitch unless directed to.
To attach the key ring: after you make the chain, slide the key ring through the chapstick holder from bottom to top, and onto the chain.
sc: single crochet
ss: slip stitch
f/o: finish off
Make a magic ring
Beginner Modification: make a slip knot and ch 2, then work the Round 1 instructions into the second ch from the hook
Round 1: sc 5 into the magic ring/chain (5 sts)
Round 2: sc 2 in ea st around (10 sts)
Rounds 3-12: sc in ea st around (10 sts)
Round 13: ss in next st, ch 5, and slide the key ring onto the chain (see pattern notes or tutorial). ss into the next st
f/o and weave in your ends. Enjoy your new chapstick holder!
Until next time,
