Ribbed Lip Balm Holder


SIZE
One Size

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS

MATERIALS
Leftover scraps of sock yarn
1 set US size 0 double point needles
Tapestry Needle


PATTERN
Cast on 3 sts.
Work I-cord for two (2) inches.
Cast-on 15 more sts using knitted cast-on and join round. (18 sts)
Divide onto three (3) double point needles to begin working in the round.
Work three (3) rounds of stockinette st.
On fourth round, begin 2X2 ribbing by k2, p2. You will end with a ridge of 4 knit sts on the back of the tube. (If you don't want a 4 st ridge you can K3,P3 around. I like the ridge on my fingers)
Work in this pattern for another two (2) inches.
Knit one round.
K2tog around. (9 sts)
K2tog around, then knit last st. (5 sts)
Break yarn leaving 8" tail and weave tail through live loops. Pull tail tightly to close hole, and weave in all ends.

To form loop on top fold i-cord down and use the tail to attach the top of the cord to the bottom where the tube starts. You can make it fit a belt by making the i-cord longer.

Enjoy!

This is a great idea, thanks for sharing the pattern! We can even color coordinate them to match my little princess' many outfits. I just want one in a dark color so it doesn't show dirt haha
