Lip Balm Key Chain

Updated: Apr 15, 2023

I created these little bobbles back in 2018 for a spring craft show I signed up for last minute. I needed a few low-cost items that were super quick to whip up using what I already had on hand in my crap... or I mean CRAFT room.

If you're anything like me you have multiple tubes of lip balm floating around your home and getting lost in your purse. Thinking these were something I would totally use I whipped up about a dozen to take with me. I WAY underestimated their popularity and sold out in the first 20 minutes of the show.

I still make sure I have at least 2 dozen with me at each show I do and they have yet to lose their appeal. Using up my leftover scraps from washcloths and other cotton items make these a super inexpensive make too. I like to get the lip balm in bulk from amazon so that really cuts down on the cost.

DON'T FORGET to check out this month's

Here's what you'll need to get started.......


Lily's 100% Cotton(approx. 30yds)

F(3.75 mm)Hook




Key ring with chain(see photo)

Abbreviations(US Terms):

SK = Skip

sts = Stitches

ST = Stitch

CH = Chain

SC = Single Crochet

HDC= Half Double Crochet

Note: This pattern is worked in a continuous round through ROUND 9. I recommend testing with your Lip Balm once you complete Round 9 to make sure it is the right height. You may need to add another round or 2 to reach the top of your Lip Balm, depending on the brand, before starting the flap.

To Begin: create a Magic Ring

ROUND 1: place 6 HDC in the ring(6)

ROUND 2: place 2 HDC in each ST(12)

ROUNDS 3-9: HDC in each ST around(12 each round)(72 total)

ROUND 10(flap): HDC in the next 6 sts & turn(6)

ROUNDS 11 & 12: CH 1(does not count as a ST), HDC in each ST(6), turn

ROUND 13(button hole): CH 1(does not count as a ST), HDC in the first 2 sts, CH 2, SK 2, HDC in the last 2 sts, turn

ROUND 14: CH 1(does not count as a ST), HDC in the first ST, SK 1, place 3 HDC in the CH SP, SK 1, SC in the last ST & tie off.

NOTE: Leave a long tail, weave it in so that you end at the middle of the flap and on ROUND 8 or 9. Use the remaining tail to attach your key ring. Fold your flap over and determine where to attach your button based on the alignment of the button hole. Finally sew on your button.
