Other Suggestions...
  • Try solid, variegated or self-striping yarns.
  • Acrylic or Wool yarns work well, too.
  • Change colors just after you attach the split ring for a 2-color cozy.
  • Leave off the split ring if you desire.
  • One additional round of SC should be enough to accommodate MOST standard lipstick tubes.
  • Use a bigger hook to make a cozy to fit extra large lip balm/lipstick tubes.
  • Try some fun novelty buttons, too!
