Lip Balm Crochet Ewe
I've been having so much fun designing new patterns for the EOS lip balm containers. It started with a Cactus, then a Cupcake and now a little Ewe! This Lip Balm Crochet Ewe was a suggestion by Carmen Pay, she suggested a fat sheep and has won herself a free pattern from my ravelry shop.
This pattern uses Rich Cotton from my yarn shop with a US 2/2.2mm steel hook. It uses a ball stitch (b-st), it's kind of like a puff stitch but worked slightly different. Make sure to check out the Pattern Special Stitches to learn how to do this stitch. Also required for this pattern will be 2 elastics approximately 1.25 inch that will stretch to approximately 2 inches.
This little lip balm crochet ewe will fit over an EOS lip balm container or something of similar size. I took a little video because you really need to see this little girl in 3D!
