I used whatever yarn I had around with a E hook. You can go for a slightly bigger hook and I don't think there will be much difference.
slip stich to make a circle, 1 chain
in the circle 9 sc, slipstich to finish, 1 chain
Then I modified it with a version I found that I was told was a Japanese way of doing crochet in the round.
You take the outer stitch and sc around until you achieve the desired length. Measure to your chapstick. No need to count or have a specific number to go by. Once you have the length you slip stitch, 9 chain, sc
in the next loop, slip stitch and finish off. Either by weaving in the end or knotting off. That's all. Easy.
Guess what people are getting for the holidays?
I also want to thank those who expressed their feelings to me. It is a hard time, but I'm getting through it by playing with the dogs that are still here. My dog will now be watching me wondering... why are you making another chapstick holder?!
