Crocheted Ice Cream Cones

Categories: Kid Friendly, Crochet

There is nothing better on a hot summer day than ice cream, it is cold, sweet, and tasted delicious. Though this crocheted version may not be any of those things it is still pretty cute, definitely fewer calories, and can be used in a lot of different ways. They are the perfect size for kids to use as play food. They could be strung together to make an ice cream cone garland that would be cute either just as summer decor or for an ice cream or birthday party. They could make cute party favors as well. They are small enough that they work up really fast and take so little yarn that they are a great stash buster project. Pair some light tan or cream colored yarn with pretty much any color you have in your stash and you can make an ice cream cone.

If you want to add sprinkles or chocolate chips you can do that now by adding random stitches of desired color all over the scoop.

Step Three

Stuff the cone and the scoop and sew them together. There are 18 stitches around each so you should be able to match them up and sew one stitch from the cone to the back loop of one of the stitches from the scoop all the way around. You may want to add more stuffing as you stitch it closed.

  • ice cream garland

Step Four

Once the top is sewn onto the cone you can either leave them as is and use them just like that or you can sew through the tops of the scoops to string them on a piece of yarn to create a garland.
