Lip Balm Holder is an original PlanetJune Accessories crochet pattern by June Gilbank.

Never lose your lip balm again (or have it melt in your pocket) with this stylish holder! Clip it to your keyring, to your bag, or even to your belt loop and you’ll always have lip balm at hand when you need it. Quick and easy to crochet, just pop a lip balm inside and you have a perfect little gift!

Yarn: Small quantity of size 5 crochet thread (or substitute size 8 or 10 thread, or a super fine/fingering weight yarn)

Hook: B US/2.25mm crochet hook

Note: This pattern is Donationware - the pattern is available for free, but if you like it please consider sending me a donation to show your appreciation. The PDF version, available for any size donation, is formatted for easy viewing and printing and includes bonus information (detailed below). The complete pattern is available to view in full (for no charge) from the linked page.

PDF version bonus information:

  • A modification to make the holder slightly wider (in case you crochet tightly or have a non-standard-width lip balm tube)
  • A simpler edging (in case you don’t get along with reverse single crochet)
  • Tips for attaching the various types of hardware that you see in my photos
