Crochet Ice Cream Applique

Who doesn’t love some delicious gelato?! I love it so much I wanted to crochet it into a cute, little Ice Cream Applique!

Even though it’s still rainy outside and the Netherlands gets hit by a storm every weekend, I seem to have already started dreaming about summer and my favorite food, ice cream!

I crocheted a first version of the ice cream embellishment to decorate one of my Tunisian Crochet Cottage Potholders.

After the first applique prototype, I tweaked the pattern a little bit, and voila!

  • Yarn of Choice
  • Appropriate Hook Size
  • Tapestry Needle

Yarn Reference

I used a 2.5-mm crochet hook Sport weight cotton yarn, Schachenmayr Catania, in the following colors:

  • A – Curry (431)
  • B – Pink (225)
  • C – Turquoise (397)
  • D – Natural (105)

Crochet Abbreviations (US Terms)

Ch – Chain
Dc – Double Crochet
Hdc – Half Double Crochet
Inc – Increase
Sc – Single Crochet
Sl St – Slip Stitch
St – Stitch
Tr – Treble Crochet
Yo – Yarn over

Special Stitches

Increase (Inc)
One increase consists of 2 sts worked in the same indicated st.

Pattern Notes

  • If the pattern says “sc 2”, it means that you have to crochet 1 sc in each of the next two sts.
  • […] – Crochet the instructions within square brackets all into the same indicated st.


When crocheted with sport weight yarn and a 2.5-mm (C/2 US, 12 UK) crochet hook, you can expect an ice cream of about 2” (5 cm) by 1.5” (4 cm).


This pattern is too small to accurately determine the gauge.
