Is there someone who brings a little sunshine in your life!? Then this the perfect Valentine or “just because” gift for them! Crochet a simple sun ring around an orange or yellow EOS Lip Balm and pair it with the free printable I created. Easy-peasy! I was inspired by my friend Kara from Petals to Picots “Your the Balm” Valentine and Printable where she crocheted a bomb around an EOS Lip Balm container! So clever! See it and get the free pattern HERE.
– Yellow worsted weight yarn. I used Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in Ducky yellow. This is my new favorite colors. I used it HERE and HERE!
– Size F crochet hook
– Tapestry Needle
– EOS Lip Balm in yellow or orange. I used their tangerine flavor

SC = Single Crochet
HDC = Half Double Crochet
DC = Double Crochet
Sun Ring Pattern:
Chain 25 (or more/less depending on your tension), join to first chain to make a loop. You will want the loop to fit SNUG around the EOS Lip Balm.
Round 2: Make 30 SC around the chain loop, join to first SC
Round 3: Chain 5, *Slip stitch in first chain, SC in next chain, HDC in next, DC in last, skip 2 SC in round and join with slip stitch, Chain 5 and repeat from * all the way around making 10 triangular points.
Fasten off and weave in ends.
Press ring snuggly onto the lip balm. You may need to press in the little piece of bulging plastic around the bottom of the lip balm.
You may notice the triangles curl up a bit. You can spray it with Stiffen Spray or use THESE METHODS to stiffen your piece.
