Buzz-E Bee and Ladybug Chapstick Holders

I have decided to make my chapstick holders pattern FREE!! If you would like the ad-free pdf you can purchase it here. This pattern is worked in the round from the bottom up. There are two different patterns. One for the Buzz-e Bee Chapstick holder and the Lady Bug Chapstick holder .

These fit most average tubes of chapstick. I have included tips throughout the pattern of how and when to crochet in certain tails. This helps a lot because the tubes are so small it is hard to weave in the tails afterwards. I hope you love the pattern and I cant wait to see your finished products!

Buzz-E Bee Body: I do not cut yarn in between each color change. I simply just carry it over the opposite color’s rows on the inside. When doing this be sure not to pull it too tight as this can mess up the shape of the project. Each row has either a Y or a B at the beginning. This indicates what color to use for each row. Y = Yellow, B = Black
