Lip Balm Holder & Keychain

Lip balm Holder & Keychain
PDF version here: download now

Fingering (sock) weight yarn
4 double point needles, size 1
1 Keychain ring
1 tube of lip balm

To make holder:

CO 20 sts, divide among 3 needles.
Join to knit in the round.

Kint 2X2 ribbing (k2, p2) until holder is long enough to cover lip balm tube. I chose to have the holder be slightly longer than the lip balm tube.

Next round: K2tog, P2tog around.

Cut yarn leaving a good size tail. Thread tail through yarn needles and then thread tail through loops on the needles, remove needles and draw opening closed. Fasten yarn off to the inside.

To make keychain loop:

With one double point needle, pick up and knit three stitches inside the holder, just below the holder opening.

Knit 3 stitch I-cord for desired length.

With a second double point needle, pick up 3 stitches close to other stitches you picked up. Perform a three needle bind off to create a loop.

Insert keychain ring in loop and hang from keys.
