Carrot Lip Balm Holder
"My carrot lip balm/gift holder fits perfectly in any Easter basket! It is a quick and fun project to make! Like a plastic Easter egg, it can also be used to hold other small gifts like candy and money. An ideal basket stuffer! -Size F/5/3.75mm crochet hook or size needed to obtain gauge -Worsted weight (4) yarn in Orange (I used Red Heart Super Saver yarn in Pumpkin.) -Worsted weight (4) yarn in Green (I used Red Heart Super Saver yarn in Spring Green.)"
NotesThe carrot is made in continuous rounds. Do not join round with a slip stitch unless otherwise indicated.
Close the magic ring and weave in the loose end at the beginning since it gets very narrow as you work and it will be difficult to weave in at the end.
