Yarn Closer Look

I used cotton yarn. It’s a worsted weight yarn and it’s sold in many different color choices, including neutral, brights, and even pastels. Lily Sugar’n Cream Cotton yarn is one of my favorites. I’ve used this yarn to create household projects such as dish towels, dishcloths, potholders, and now I’ve expanded to crochet masks and crochet lips.

As with many of my projects, creating can be done in many different ways. Learning how to crochet should be a relaxing process but it can take time to develop a technique that works best for you. My goal is to show you how to create beautiful crochet projects from a beginner’s perspective.

This pattern is worked along both sides of the foundation chain. There are only 2 rows to complete the lips.

Top Lip:

Along the top of the foundation chain, you’ll create the top portion of the lip. Then flip over to work along the bottom of the foundation chain. (Once you flip over the top part of the lip should be at the bottom) and worked on the other side of the foundation chain.

Note: Working on along the bottom of the foundation chain can be a little tricky because the stitches may not be as defined. Try not to overthink this process, just pull the foundation chain a little to try to identify the stitch.

The goal is to create a pouty bottom lip.

Optional: Go around the lips with a slip stitch to create more condense or poutier lips.
