Crochet Ice Cream Cone

Who doesn't like a good ice cream cone? Just the other day I took a little road trip with my other half up towards Slieve Bloom Mountains. After a couple hours of trekking through the forests and admiring all the beautiful scenery surrounding us we thought, "Hmm how nice would it be to lick a nice ice cream cone". So we jumped into the car and drove to the nearest gas station with our mouths watering. Our dreams were immediately crushed once we got in. Apparently they stopped serving ice cream cones due to the fact tat summer ended. Even though we are nearly halfway through October, the weather is still pretty mild so it was a bit of a surprise. I really can't tell you all how much I have craved for an ice cream cone ever since. So last night, with cones on my brain, I came up with this super cute ice cream cone pattern. Not only is it super delicious looking, but the best part is it's 100% fat free!! You can't get better than that, now can you?


For this project I used a dk weight yarn but any weight yarn will work. The thicker the yarn the bigger the ice cream cone will be. I also used a 3.5mm crochet hook. The cone is made from a beige color yarn but the ice cream scoops can be made in any color you like. A small amount of a chocolate brown yarn is needed for the chocolate sauce, some white for the cream topping and a little red for the cherry on the top.
