This knitted ice cream is a fun project and uses some basic stitches: knit, purl, a kfb increase and k2tog decrease. I decorated my ice cream with a cherry, a chocolate flake stick and bead sprinkles.

THE PATTERN INCLUDES: Row numbers for each step so you don’t lose your place, instructions for making the ice cream, a list of abbreviations and explanation of some techniques, a materials list and recommended yarns. The pattern is 3 pages and written in English.

TECHNIQUES: This is a basic pattern, and worked flat but can easily be converted to knitting in the round. All pieces are knitted flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight knitting needles. You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work a kfb increase and k2tog decrease, sew seams and change colour at the end of a row. To decorate your ice cream sprinkles you can sew on some beads, or use French knot embroidery.


  • A pair of 3.75mm straight knitting needles (US 5)
  • Double knitting yarns (DK or light worsted weight)
  • Toy filling
