Make a set of four or more cozies to tie with ribbon and give as a summer gift.

They can be made in any colors you like, in brights or neutrals.

I would recommend making them in 100% cotton.

What Supplies Do You Need To Crochet An Ice Cream Cozy? 

To crochet an ice cream cozy, you’ll need some basic supplies, including yarn in your desired colors (Lily Sugar ‘n Cream Solids or 24/7 Cotton Yarn from Lion Brand Yarns), a crochet hook suitable for the yarn weight, a pair of scissors, and a yarn needle for weaving in ends.  

Use a stitch marker to keep track of your rounds as you crochet around the circle. 

As you work, think about the size of your cozy, ensuring it’s sized to fit snugly around the pints of ice cream you intend to cover. 

Remember to mark the first stitch (first st) of each round to maintain the pattern’s integrity and ensure your cozy stays symmetrical. 

With these supplies and techniques, you’ll be able to create a charming ice cream cozy, perfect for keeping your treats cold and your hands cozy. 

You might also need buttons, If you also decide to add a few embellishments to your finished products.

  1. Oh my stars I just saw this darling pattern on Share a pattern ….but now I must find Baklava ice cream!!!!! I hope my Greek Grocery in Minneapolis has it … and with your cozy I might have found a new addiction I can sit by the lake and take it all in with a spoon full of yum. πŸ™‚

    Thank you

    1. Hello Kay,
      The ice cream in the photos is produced locally by a company (Krokan) in my village here in Corfu, Greece.
      I’m not sure if they supply internationally – but you might find something similar.
      My husband says it is very good!
      I hope you enjoy the pattern πŸ™‚

  2. Louise, Thank you for this wonderful and easy ice cream pint crochet pattern! My friend has a Ninja Creami Machine and I bought extra containers for it (4” base x 3.75” height) and crocheted her 2 sets worth and a spare (9 total) of ice cream pint covers in all kinds of bright colors. I custom fit each one as I crocheted them. I made them using Lion Brand yarns; 4 & 6 weight, providing a light summer set and thicker winter set in bright colors plus a grey one for her boyfriend. I also added cute dog and cat face buttons at each end of the loop on this cozy as my friend has a petsitting service. I was able to crochet these all in less than a week!

    1. Hello Teri,
      Thanks so much for your kind words, I’m glad you enjoyed the pattern and were able to customize it for your friends and family.
      Happy crocheting!
      Louise πŸ™‚
