I wrapped my yarn around the needle 3 times as opposed to only twice for the snowman’s buttons. Skill Level Beginner Gauge 13 stitches and 11 rows = 5 cm in single crochet Size This lip balm holder measures approx. 3.7“ (9.5 cm) in height to the top of the hat. Yardage Weight: 6 grams Yardage: Approximately 14 m (15.3 yards). Notes You can make the pattern larger or smaller by changing the type of yarn and/or hook size. Depending on the size of your lip balm, lipstick or lip gloss, you might want to add a few rounds of white to increase height. Numbers at the end of each row (in brackets) indicate the number of final stitches in that row. Please ensure that your lip balm is the size of the bottom of the holder after round 2. Insert your lip-balm, lipstick or lip gloss into the holder when you get to almost the end to see if you need to add a few rounds to adjust height. We’ll be working in the round, so a stitch marker is advised. Please note that I use US crochet terms."
