Delicate Pink Lipstick Cosy

I made this in an hour or two, it's not a difficult concept just a fiddly thing to do. I don't know if I'll make another one, but it is very pretty if I do say so myself!

I have to keep my tension as even as possible and I find that hard as some stitches are slack. The pattern is easy, which I made up myself. I haven't seen any pictures of a lipstick cosy quite like this. I like this one as it's more dainty than the ones I just saw on google images.
a pretty cosy for my favourite lipstick
First start with a flat circle of 10 dc, 2nd round is 20 dc. Then stop increasing and start going up the sides. I used my favourite pretty stitch handed down to me by my grandmother. Then I ended with a round of 5 dc scallops. I used a pretty variegated pink number 20 cotton and my 1.25mm hook.
... and now it is perfect!
I think this is really pretty! It's going to live in my handbag, something little and pretty just for me! And after living in my handbag for a week, I realised it needed something extra, a little strap to stop it from slipping. Now it is perfect!

Every Saturday I like to link in with my only blog party, Pink Saturday at How Sweet the Sound. Please check it out!


  1. I have seen and own a lot of crochet, but never have I seen this.

  2. Unusual piece Teena, I've never seen a lipstic cosy before...perhaps that's because I don't wear lipstick.

    Thanks for popping by and saying hi, I hope you enjoy your weekend.

  3. Oh, this is really pretty! I've never seen a lipstick cozy. I crochet too and when I'm using thread, I tend to hold my thread too tight at the beginning and anything round ends up with a pointy head! :)
    Be a sweetie and thanks for popping in to see me.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)
