When planning Holli’s bridal shower, I knew I wanted to use a lot of bunting when decorating. And since the shower was going to center around ice cream, I wanted to find ice cream cone bunting. Then I remembered I can crochet. So I came up with this ice cream cone pattern, to be strung together as bunting, or however you wish.
What you’ll need:
Brown/tan yarn to use for the cone (I used red heart soft in wheat)
yarn in various colors for the ice cream
a small bit of black yarn if you want chocolate chips (and who doesn’t??)
a tapestry needle, to sew the ice cream scoop onto your cone
SCdec=Single crochet decrease
HDC=half double crochet
sl st=slip stitch
Row 1: Ch 13, SC in second ch from hook and each stitch across (12 SC)
Row 2: SCdec, Sc in next 8, SCdec (10)
Row 3: SC across (10)
Row 4: SCdec, SC in next 6, SCdec (8)
Row 5-6: SC across (8)
Row 7: SCdec, SC in next 4, SCdec (4)
Row 8-9: SC across (6)
Row 10: SCdec, SC in next 2, SCdec (4)
Row 11-12: SC across (4)
Row 13: 2 SCdec (2)
Row 14-15: 2 SC (2)
Row 16: SCdec (1)
SC around, with 2 SC in corners. Join to 1st SC, fasten off.
Ice Cream Scoop
Scoop is worked in a half-circle. Ch 1 and turn at the end of each row.
Row 1: Magic ring, 4 HDC in ring. Do not join, ch 1 and turn
Row 2: 2 HDC in each stitch (8)
Row 3: In first stitch, *2 HDC, HDC in next stitch. Repeat from * (12)
Row 4: *2 HDC, HDC in next 2 stitches, repeat from * (16)
Row 5: *2 HDC, HDC in next 3 stitches, repeat from *(20)
Row 6: *2 HDC, HDC in next 4, repeat from * (24)
Row 7: *2 HDC, HDC in next 5, repeat from * (29)
Crochet 18 SC evenly along the bottom. Turn, *skip 2 stitches, 5 DC in next stitch, skip 2 stitches, sl st in next stitch. 1st shell stitch made. Repeat from * twice. (3 shell stitches). Fasten off, leaving long tail to sew onto cone.
If you want to add chocolate chips, sew them in before you sew the scoop onto the cone. In order to do so, take your black yarn, and stitch randomly around the scoop. The back will look messy, so if you’re hanging bunting, hang it against a wall where no one will see the back.
If you want to make bunting, get yourself some yarn or thin ribbon. With right side facing, thread yarn/ribbon through a stitch toward the top of the cone, then bring back up on the equivalent stitch on the other side. Slide it down the yarn or ribbon, and repeat, spacing the cones evenly. The stitches should be small enough so that they don’t slide around.
Now hang up that bunting and get yourself some ice cream. You deserve it!
