Pattern Design + Construction:

Do you ever find yourself digging into a delicious pint of your favorite ice cream and your hands are just so cold?! I mean, who really wants to scoop the ice cream out into a bowl? And then, the bowl gets cold too...Thus, my inspiration for this quick and easy crochet ice cream cozy was born! These handmade ice cream holders make adorable gifts for a girl's or guy's night in! So let's whip some up so we can Netflix & chill.

Keep your hands warm with the crochet ice cream cozy!

Each crochet ice cream cozy is worked in the round with bulky yarn and only takes just a few rows, making it extremely beginner friendly and a great crochet gift idea. The finished ice cream sleeve measures approximately 4 inches tall and fits a standard-sized pint of ice cream. Pictured here for this tutorial, I've used a pint of Halo Top ice cream for sizing.

We'll be using some super soft Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick yarn for this project. This is one of my favorite bulky yarn brands to work with. I like the variety of color options and availability at my local craft stores and online. This soft and bulky yarn creates a gorgeous texture and keeps your hands warm. Using quality bulky yarn makes this project work up so quickly.

This yarn is a super bulky weight category 6. You could easily substitute brands/colors as long as they are similar in ounces per gram.

  • Each skein is 6 oz./170g (106 yd/97 m)

I've used the following colors for this tutorial:

  • Oatmeal

Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick & Quick Yarn in the color Oatmeal is used for the crochet ice cream cozy.
