How to crochet a popsicle / ice cream | DIY

crochet popsicle

Today I have a DIY-project that’s suitable for this time of year: my sister Margot made a great tutorial on how to crochet this cute magnum-popsicle. I absolutely love how it turned out and is isn’t that hard to make. My daughter loves to play with these toys, and it’s a pity you can’t really eat them! Let’s take a look at how to make them!

What do you need?

  • brown yarn
  • beige or light brown yarn
  • a hook in the size that fits the yarn
  • scissors
  • toy stuffing

This is how you make the popsicle

Start with the brown yarn:

1: make a magic loop and crochet 6 sc
2: 2sc in every stitch, you get a total of 12 stitches
3: 2sc, 2x 2sc in the next stitch, 4 sc, 2x 2sc in the next stitch, 2sc (16v)
4: 3sc, 2x 2sc in the next  v, 6sc, 2x 2sc in the next  v, 3scv (20v)
5: 4sc, 2x 2sc in the next v, 8sc, 2x 2sc in the next v, 4sc (24v)
6: 5sc, 2x sc in the next v, 10sc, 2x 2sc in the next v, 5sc (28v)

Fill your ice cream with toy stuffing and decorate with ‘nuts’ (you can use the light brown yarn to create the nuts).
