It’s 8 o’clock. The kids are in bed. Now is the time to stuff your face with all the yummy snacks you secretly hide. Am I the only one who does this? You grab the pint of Ice Cream stowed away in the freezer and you eat right out of the pint until you realize your fingers are about to freeze off. You don’t want to deal with the hassle of pulling out a bowl, scooping the ice cream into the bowl, eating out of the bowl, and then putting it in the sink to clean later #thestruggleisreal.
Really though, why go through all of that nonsense and risk waking the kids up when it’s time to wash the dishes? So instead, you come up with a really great excuse to eat ice cream out of the pint ^^^ and open your drawer to find your handy-dandy, beginner-friendly Ice Cream Cozy.
THIS CROCHET PATTERN IS FEATURED IN WEEK 1 OF THE STASH BUSTING CHALLENGE! HEAD OVER TO THE ROUNDUP TO FIND MORE CROCHET PROJECTS TO HELP YOU BUST THAT STASH!
Last week I was sitting on my couch, binge-watching my favorite Netflix show while my son was napping. I had the urge to stuff my face with some chocolate ice cream. Naturally, I grabbed some out of the freezer and started eating it straight out of the pint. Don’t judge me, we all do it! My fingers started to freeze and my brain went… LIGHTBULB! Why not design a cozy to hold my ice cream?! I honestly thought I was a genius for thinking of this idea, but after some research I realized I wasn’t the only one who thought of this. Lol! Either way, I ended up designing two ice cream cozy patterns!
When I started designing the first one, I wasn’t planning on posting the pattern. I was thinking about what I would want as a cozy and one thing came to mind. I wanted to create an ice cream cozy that had some padding to it! No frozen phalanges for me! In order to make that extra padding, I used front post and back post double crochets. If you have experience with front and back post crochet, you can find the pattern here.
I realized after I decided to post the pattern that this stitch isn’t ideal for beginners. If you’re a beginner, I have just the pattern for you. Last week, I posted a tutorial on how to crochet in the front and back loops only. I designed the second ice cream cozy crochet pattern to give you a fun and useful way to practice working those stitches! If you haven’t learned how to work in the front and back loops, go check out the tutorial here and come back once you’re ready to practice those new skills!
