Ice Cream is for Lovers | Crochet Ice Cream Koozie Free Pattern | A Sweet DIY Valentine's Gift For Anyone




Oh, Valentine's Day. You either love it or you hate it. Either way, you should probably get something for that special someone in your life. What I love about this gift is that it could be given to anyone. I made this sweet red and gray pair last year as a gift husband, but it would be equally appropriate for a friend, a galentine, a child. Anyone who loves ice cream...or coffee! It turns out this koozie can also be used as a coffee sleeve. It fits my reusable Starbucks grande cup perfectly.



{Please note: This free pattern is for personal use only. Please do not sell items made from this pattern.}

Materials:
Size 5 crochet hook
2 colors of worsted yarn
Tapestry needle to work in loose ends
Stitch markers (optional, but recommended)

Notes: This pattern is written with Red as the background color and Gray as the heart color. This pattern switches between two colors to make the heart pattern. If you are unfamiliar with how to switch between colors in crochet, you can find more information online such as this. I did not 'crochet over' the other color, but instead let it float on the inside of the koozie. Below in the pattern, I have denoted this switching of color by stating which of the loops should switch to the new color. I also use stitch markers to mark the beginning/end of each row.

SC = Single Crochet

Note - Start each row into the first stitch of the previous row.
