DIY Tutorial: Crochet Ice Cream

April 3, 2013

I first began to crochet about the same time Juu & I started Operation Overhaul. Over time, I have been making small little things every now and then—a green alien for Juu, an eyeball for no particular reason, our unofficial mascot which we brought to the Handmade Movement Flea and more! Will anyone be interested in these ice cream pins? Drop me a comment if you are!

Cone
R1: Ch 2, 5sc in 2nd ch from hook.

Finish off with a long tail of yarn.

Stuff both sides of your ice cream cone. Thread the long tail of yarn through a yarn needle and sew it to the inside loops of your ice cream to attach the two parts together. I’ve attached brooch pins to these, so that I can pin them to bags as accessories!
