This free crochet pattern is for an Ice Cream Cozy for an ice cream pint. This cozy was made with velvet yarn and comes with a full video tutorial as well.

Do you remember the last time you had ice cream at home? I do. I was sitting next to my hubby on the sofa watching a very interesting romantic movie. The fire was flickering in the fireplace and with the light dimmed I held my ice cream pint in my hand. It was cold, slippery, but I needed it.

I grabbed a towel that was way too big and made holding the ice cream carton uncomfortable. And then it happened. It slipped right out of the towel onto the floor. What a mess!

Without freaking out, I cleaned it up and saw in the corner of my eyes my velvet yarn. I knew immediately what I wanted to make with it.

Velvet Ice Cream Cozy - Free Crochet Pattern

I got right to it and made a velvet Ice Cream cozy for pints of ice cream. And of course, it works for sorbets, too, which I love just as much.

The velvet yarn makes the cozy soft and stable without slipping around and of course it keeps your hands warm and your ice cream cold while eating it.
