Happy New Year! I bookmarked this crochet ice-creams pattern a while ago and with an upcoming ice-cream party they had to move to the top of the making list.
The pattern is from Cake Sachets – Crocheted for Charity which you can find for free online. It’s a pretty basically written pattern so probably not for the total beginner crocheter.
Especially the 3 colour ice-cream as it takes a bit of working out as you have to read two patterns at the same time which is a little confusing. I had to draw myself a colour chart to make it a bit clearer. Nevertheless they do look fabulous when they’re done.
The ice-cream cone really has a great shape and I love the different flavour ice-cream options you can create. I used some Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino to make mine as I had the perfect colours for this project in my stash.
You can do either one ruffle at the bottom of the ice-cream or two like the one I made above. If I had enough time and yarn they would make a cute take home gift for our ice-cream party however I think I’m done with three for the moment.
If I make them again I’d like to experiment with putting some heavier stuffing in the bottom of the cone so that they can stand up by themselves better or I’m sure they’d be a way to maybe put a cardboard circle at the bottom which might help as well.
I’ve been making a few different items of play food for the kids toy kitchen and once the party is over these will be used there for sure. I’ll share some details of the other play food I’ve made in another blog post soon.
My favourite flavour ice-cream is mint choc-chip. What’s your favourite flavour?
