Happy Icecream Cone Applique Crochet Pattern
free crochet pattern from cRAfterChick.com
Although this happy icecream applique came out a bit bigger than I originally planned for it to be I still like it. It’s going to make a fun add for a baby bib with my Easy Baby Bib pattern and baby granny square blanket I’m making with food appliques. I made this crocheted icecream applique on a whim one day when bored. I actually made a little set which you can below that so far includes Happy Cupcake Applique Crochet Pattern, Happy Chocolate Chip Cookie Applique Crochet Pattern and Silly Monkey Face pattern that I still have to type up. I’m hoping once I catch up on all of my projects in progress I can make a few more to get the blanket complete. Let me know if you have any questions. I tried to make it as easy to understand as possible. I don’t have the patience for very complicated patterns. 😉
Here is a picture below of the little set all together plus a silly monkey one I made up at the same time.

Cherry: using red yarn
Round 1: In a magic circle, ch 1 before placing 8 sc in to the circle. Pull circle tightly closed. Sl st in to the top of the 1st st in round. (8 sc)
Leaving a long enough of a yarn tail to be able to sew your cherry part of the icecream cone applique on to the top of your applique and on to your desired project before cutting yarn and pulling through.
Eyes (Make 2): using black yarn
Round 1: In a magic circle, ch 1 before placing following st in this order: (1 sc, 1 hdc, 1 sc, 1 hdc). Pull circle closed and sl st in to the top of the 1st st. (4 st total)
Leave a long enough yarn tail to be able to sew your eye on icecream cone applique during assembly before you cut yarn, pull it through and place to side until needed in steps below.
Repeat for second eye.
Mouth: using black yarn
Set aside a small amount of black yarn like you used for the eyes so you can freehand stitch on a smile during finishing steps.
Taking the tail from your icrecream cone’s cherry and a Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle sew your cherry on top of the icecream topper (pink) part of your applique. Pull extra tail through to back of applique and leave until attaching to your project.
Taking the tail from one of the assembled eyes and your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle , sew your icecream cone’s eye in desired location. You can reference pictures to see how I placed my own. It’s up to your personal preference though. Once fully secure, pull yarn to back side of applique before fastening off. Repeat process for the second eye.
Taking your short length of black yarn to placed to the side for the mouth and the yarn needle, freehand stitch the mouth or smile in desired place on your applique. Again you can see my pictures on where I placed my own or play around with your own placement. Once stitched in place, pull yarn to back side of applique and fasten off.
Now that your applique is constructed you should still have three yarn tails left:
1. Red yarn tail from cherry
2. Pink (or desired color) yarn tail for icecream scoop
3: Tan or light brown yarn tail for icecream cone.
Why three tails? You will be using each tail to sew on the coordinating color of your applique on to your desired project. If we used just one tail you would have contrasting colors in stitches running around perimeter to secure your icecream cone applique in place.
Now check over your crochet project for any other tails or ends (besides those just mentioned above) that you may have missed in process to weave in and finish off. Do so if you find any.
All done! You just need to figure out what project you want to attach your chibi happy icecream cone applique to now. Once you have decided and are ready to attach your applique to project. Proceed to following steps.
Attaching your applique to project:
Taking the tail left from your cherry and your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle, sew your cherry part of your applique on to your desired project placement. Once secure pull yarn through to inside or back of project before fastening off.
Next take the tail from your icecream topper (mine in pictures is pink) and Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew the icecream scoop part of your applique securely in place. Once done, pull yarn to back or inside of project and fasten off.
Now you just need to use your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle and tail leftover for the icecream cone base to secure that part of the applique in place on to your project. Once your applique is fully secured, pull yarn to back and fasten off.
That’s it. Now I just need to figure out what project I want to attach my happy icecream cone applique to!
