Crochet ice cream: Make your own ice cream cone


Find here a tutorial to learn how to make your own crochet ice cream game.


My son has a new obsession with ice cream and ice cream trucks. So I decided to make him a crochet ice cream crochet game! Select your crochet cone, choose your flavor (s), add a topping and your crochet ice cream is ready! It is a nice game to develop motor skills and to learn colors. The number of combinations is unlimited. It is also a perfect crochet pattern if you have some leftovers of yarn and you do not know what to do with it!

 

Please, give me some feedback! Let me know if you see any mistakes or things that you do not understand. Or tell me if you have some suggestions for my pattern.

How to crochet an ice cream?


Let’s start!

 

Crochet Cones:

I will show you how to make a crochet cone.

 

Traditional long crochet cone (pointed cone)

 

 

With the cream yarn and the 3.5 mm hook

 

Work in rounds, do not turn unless specified. If needed, use a stitch marker for the first stitch of each round.

First, we will make the top part of the cone with the magnet:

Round 1: start 6 sc in a magic ring. (6)

Round 2: inc 6 times. (12)

Round 3: [sc in next st, 1 inc in next st] x6. (18)

Round 4: [sc in next 2 st, 1 inc in next st] x6. (24)

Cut the yarn and sew in the end. Save it for later.

 

We will make another one but this time, we will not cut the yarn.

Round 1: start 6 sc in a magic ring. (6)

Round 2: inc 6 times. (12)

Round 3: [sc in next st, 1 inc in next st] x6. (18)

Round 4: [sc in next 2 st, 1 inc in next st] x6. (24)

Round 5: Insert your hook in the next st AND in 1 st of your other circle (it does not matter which st.). Make 1 sc through both st (see pictures below). For the entire round, we will keep working on the stitches of both circles as we just did.

sc in next 2 st, 1 inc in next st.

[sc in next 3 st, 1 inc in next st] x2

Insert 1 magnet of 0.75 in / 1.9 cm in the middle.

[sc in next 3 st, 1 inc in next st] x3. (30)

Cut the yarn and sew in the end. We will attach it to the base of the cone later.

The Flavors:

 

Round shape flavors: 

 

 

With the color of your choice and the 3.5 mm hook

 

Work in rounds, do not turn unless specified. If needed, use a stitch marker for the first stitch of each round.

 

First, we will make the bottom part of the flavors with the magnet:

Round 1: start 6 sc in a magic ring. (6)

Round 2: inc 6 times. (12)

Round 3: [sc in next st, 1 inc in next st] x6. (18)

Round 4: [sc in next 2 st, 1 inc in next st] x6. (24)

Cut the yarn and sew in the end. Save it for later.

 

We will make another one but this time, we will not cut the yarn.

Round 1: start 6 sc in a magic ring. (6)

Round 2: inc 6 times. (12)

Round 3: [sc in next st, 1 inc in next st] x6. (18)

Round 4: [sc in next 2 st, 1 inc in next st] x6. (24)

Round 5: Insert your hook in the next st AND in 1 st of your other circle (it does not matter which st.). Make 1 sc through both st (see pictures below). For the entire round, we will keep working on the stitches of both circles as we just did.

sc in next 2 st, 1 inc in next st.

[sc in next 3 st, 1 inc in next st] x2

Insert 1 magnet of 0.75 in / 1.9 cm in the middle. BE VERY CAREFUL WITH THIS STEP! DO NOT INSERT THE MAGNET IN THE WRONG WAY. You want to make sure that the base of your flavor will stick to the top of your cone. Double check it will stick before to continue.

[sc in next 3 st, 1 inc in next st] x3. (30)

Cut the yarn and sew in the end. We will attach it to the base of the flavor later.

 

 

Let’s now work on the top of the flavor. I also add a magnet at the top to be able to add more flavors to it and make a bigger ice-cream.

Round 1: start 6 sc in a magic ring. (6)

Round 2: inc 6 times. (12)

Round 3: [sc in next st, 1 inc in next st] x6. (18)

Cut the yarn and sew in the end. Save it for later.

 

We will make another one but this time, we will not cut the yarn.

Round 1: start 6 sc in a magic ring. (6)

Round 2: inc 6 times. (12)

Round 3: [sc in next st, 1 inc in next st] x6. (18)

Round 4: Insert your hook in the next st AND in 1 st of your other circle (it does not matter which st.). Make 1 sc through both st (see pictures below). For the entire round, we will keep working on the stitches of both circles as we just did.

sc in next st, 1 inc in next st.

[sc in next 2 st, 1 inc in next st] x2

 

 

Insert 1 magnet of 0.5 in / 1.2 cm in the middle. ONCE AGAIN BE VERY CAREFUL WITH THIS STEP! DO NOT INSERT THE MAGNET IN THE WRONG WAY. You want to make sure that the top of your flavor will stick to the base of another flavor. Use the base that you just made to check it is in the right way. Double check before to continue.

 




 

[sc in next 2 st, 1 inc in next st] x3. (24)

Round 5: [sc in next 3 st, 1 inc in next st] x6. (30)

Rounds 6 to 8: 1 sc in all st. (30)

Round 9: [sc in next 4 st, 1 inc in next st] x6. (36)

Rounds 10 to 12: 1 sc in all st. (36)

Round 13: [sc in next 4 st, 1 dec in next st] x6. (30)

Rounds 14 to 16: 1 sc in all st. (30)

Stuff the flavor (do not put too much filling as you want to be able to push the base in the inside).

Round 17: Insert your hook in the next st AND in 1 st of your other circle (it does not matter which st. Make sure it is in the right way). Make 1 sc through both st (see pictures below). For the entire round, we will keep working on the stitches of both circles as we just did. 1 sc in all the remaining st. (30)

Round 18: 1 sc in all st. (30)

Cut the yarn and sew in the end.

 




 

Pointed shape flavors/topping: 

 

 

They can be used either as flavors or as topping on a round-shape flavor.

 

With the color of your choice and the 3.5 mm hook

 

Work in rounds, do not turn unless specified. If needed, use a stitch marker for the first stitch of each round.

 

First, we will make the bottom part of the flavors with the magnet:

Round 1: start 6 sc in a magic ring. (6)

Round 2: inc 6 times. (12)

Round 3: [sc in next st, 1 inc in next st] x6. (18)

Round 4: [sc in next 2 st, 1 inc in next st] x6. (24)

Cut the yarn and sew in the end. Save it for later.

 

We will make another one but this time, we will not cut the yarn.

Round 1: start 6 sc in a magic ring. (6)

Round 2: inc 6 times. (12)

Round 3: [sc in next st, 1 inc in next st] x6. (18)

sc in next 2 st, 1 inc in next st.

[sc in next 3 st, 1 inc in next st] x2

 

 

Insert 1 magnet of 0.75 in / 1.9 cm in the middle. BE VERY CAREFUL WITH THIS STEP! DO NOT INSERT THE MAGNET IN THE WRONG WAY. You want to make sure that the base of your flavor will stick to the top of your cone. Double check it will stick before to continue.

[sc in next 3 st, 1 inc in next st] x3. (30)

Cut the yarn and sew in the end. We will attach it to the base of the flavor later.

 




Let’s now work on the top of the flavor.

Round 1: start 6 sc in a magic ring. (6)

Round 2: 1 sc in all st. (6)

Round 3: [1 sc in next st, 1 inc in next st] x3. (9)

Round 4: 1 sc in all st. (9)

Round 5: [1 sc in next 2 st, 1 inc in next st] x3. (12)

Round 6: 1 sc in all st. (12)

Round 7: [1 sc in next st, 1 inc in next st] x6. (18)

Round 8: in back loop only: [1 sc in next 2 st, 1 inc in next st] x6. (24)

Rounds 9 to 11: 1 sc in all st. (24)

Round 12: in back loop only: [1 sc in next 3 st, 1 inc in next st] x6. (30)

Round 15: [1 sc in next 4 st, 1 dec in next st] x6. (30)

Round 16: 1 sc in all st. (30)

If you want to add some sparkles, I would suggest you to do it now. Take the tapestry needle, the yarn(s) of your choice and make some little spot at different places.

 

 

Stuff the flavor (do not put too much filling as you want to be able to push the base slightly in the inside).

Round 17: Insert your hook in the next st AND in 1 st of your other circle (it does not matter which st. Make sure it is in the right way). Make 1 sc through both st (see pictures below). For the entire round, we will keep working on the stitches of both circles as we just did. 1 sc in all the remaining st. (30)

Round 18: 1 sc in all st. (30)

Cut the yarn and sew in the end.

 

 

Make as many flavors as you want! Be original, mix different colors, add some sparkling!

 




 


Cherry: 

 

 

With the red yarn and the 3.5 mm hook

 

Work in rounds, do not turn unless specified. If needed, use a stitch marker for the first stitch of each round.

 

Round 1: start 6 sc in a magic ring. (6)

Round 2: inc 6 times. (12)

Round 3: [sc in next st, 1 inc in next st] x6. (18)

Rounds 4 to 7: 1 sc in all st. (18)

Insert 1 magnet (0.75 in /1.9 cm) at the bottom of your cherry. BE VERY CAREFUL WITH THIS STEP! DO NOT INSERT THE MAGNET IN THE WRONG WAY. You want to make sure that the cherry will stick at the top of your flavor. Double check before to continue.

Round 8: [sc in next st, 1 dec in next st] x6. (12)

Round 9: [dec in all] x6. (6)

Close and cut the yarn.

 

With the green yarn and the 3.5 mm hook:

Ch 6. Turn. In the 2nd ch from the hook, make 1 sc. make 1 sc in the next 4 st.

Attach to the cherry with the tapestry needle.

 

 

 


The icing: 

 

 

With the yarn of your choice and the 3.5 mm hook

 

Work in rounds, do not turn unless specified. If needed, use a stitch marker for the first stitch of each round.

Round 1: start 6 sc in a magic ring. (6)

Round 2: inc 6 times. (12)

Round 3: [1 sc in next st, 1 inc in next st] x6. (18)

Ideas: you can make some of the chain longer or shorter if you want to make different kinds of icing. 

Cut the yarn and sew in the ends.

Crochet ice cream: Make your own ice cream crochet cone


 

6 thoughts on “Crochet ice cream: Make your own ice cream cone”

  1. Did u have trouble with the magnets not being strong enough? I am using 2 .75magnets for each piece

    1. Hi, mine were definitely strong enough but I know some people who are having trouble to find strong enough magnets. Are you in the USA?

  2. Hello thanks for such a cute pattern! I’m on the white “soft” ice cream scoop on the upper part. In R12 you start off w 24 sts. & it says there’ll be a total of 36 sts at end of the Round but that’s incorrect. That sequence is only done 8 times not 9. (24 divided by 3=8) therefore total sts should be 32 not 36. This of course changes all totals so the next round leaves 2 sts, then all following rounds don’t work.

    1. Hi! You are totally right! I just updated the pattern and I am sorry for this mistake.
      It should be as follow:
      Rounds 9 to 11: 1 sc in all st. (24)
      Round 12: in back loop only: [1 sc in next 3 st, 1 inc in next st] x6. (30)
      Round 13: [1 sc in next 4 st, 1 inc in next st] x6. (36)
      Round 14: 1 sc in all st. (36)
      Thank you!

  3. I’m so looking forward to work on this project. I was wondering, can I use 1.9 cm magnets for all?
    Thanks!

    1. Hi, I am so sorry for my late reply, I had to take a break from my blog for a while. I think 1.9 cm magnets should fit in.
