Ice Cream Cozy pattern and sewalong news!

So a couple of the ladies from BBC decided to start a sewalong!! This week we are choosing between a crochet needle case and a sewing machine cover, or both! I think Im going with the crochet needle case, seeing as how I have been meaning to make one for a while but just havent gotten around to it! If I have time by the end of the week I might just make the sewing machine cover as well but we'll see :]. So hopefully my next post will be either a picture or a tut about my crochet needle case! This one is a NEW PATTERN!!! I have spent the majority of today coming up with a ice cream cozy! My family likes to eat ice cream out of the pint so I figured it was pretty practical, and not to mention cute! So I came up with this all on my lonesome :] and Im pretty happy with it. I suppose Ill be posting it on ravelry as well, but Im starting out here! Show me some love and I might just come up with some more patterns and things!!

Ice Cream Cozy Pattern
I made this pattern using a size 5 hook and a medium weight cotton yarn.
Start by chaining 4 and slip stitching to form a ring.
Row 1: Ch 2, make 11 DCs in the ring and slip stitch in the top of the first DC (chain 2 does NOT count as a DC throughout the entire pattern) (11)
Row 2: Ch 2, 2 DCs in each stitch across (22)
Row 3: Ch 1, 2 SCs in each stitch across (44)
Row 4: Ch 1, HDC2TOG in back loops only all the way across (22)
Row 5: Ch 2, 1 DC in each stitch across (22)
Row 6: Ch 2, *DC in next 7 stitches, 2 DCs in 8th stitch* repeat all the way across (24)
Row 7: Ch 2, *DC in next 5 stitches, 2 DCs in 6th stitch* repeat all the way across (28)
Row 8: Repeat row 6 (31)
Row 9: Ch 2, DC in each stitch across (31)
Rows 10 & 11: Ch 1, SC in each stitch across. After row 11 tie off and weave in ends. (31)
And VOILA!! There is your Ice Cream Cozy, now go eat some ice cream with warm hands :]


  1. Yes!!! I've been meaning to sew an ice cream cozy, but I could whip up a crocheted one in less time than I could convince my hubby to stop & pick me up a pint haha!! Thanks for the pattern & keep it up!!

  2. Thanks! Girl it works up soooo quick too. Depending on how distracted you are at least, mine took about 15 minutes! Hope you like it!!!

    oh a little side note...it looks kinda funny off of the pint but I think it helps it stay up better :]

  3. Question, Row 4: what do you mean by together HDC2TOG? Is that like 2 HDC in one SC? I've only recently learned to read crochet patterns & this one part is thoroughly confusing me. HELP!

  4. ok good! Let me know how it comes out!!

  5. I finished it! I had to use a smaller hook because I crochet big. The first one I did was super-sized haha!! But with the 4.00 hook it is perfect! I did have an issue with the holes created every time I Ch2, because your pattern says not to count them as DC, so I didn't, but it caused really big gaps. I just cut a long tail at the end & weave it through creating a seam & all is fine! I'll be putting a picture on tianamatopoeia.blogspot.com if you want to check it out!!

  6. when you did the chain 2 did you do a dc in the same stitch at the chain 2? i probably should have explained it a little better, im sorry :[! Im glad you figured it out though, im gonna go take a look at it now!!

  7. Love this! What a great idea.
    If you have time, I'd love if you could share at my linky party

  8. Hi! I just made this, actually made two...and posted it on my blog with a link to here...I've gotten several comments on what a great idea this is...so thought I'd let you know...here's the link..

  9. ok...I'm looking for any help what so ever. I'm new to crochet! I'm confused about Row 6 & 7. I'm not sure what I should be doing. Also, I can't seem to get my bottom to look like that as well! Basically, I'm a mess!
