Vanilla Ice Cream Sandwich
~ free crochet pattern ~

Hi, friends! 🙂 It’s been a long while since I have posted a pattern, and I really do apologize. Life has been super busy with three young kids (including a newborn), and I am honestly annoyed with myself for neglecting my blog. I have also recently moved and am still in the middle of unpacking. However, family comes first, so I think it is safe to say I will be on hiatus. I am taking some time to refocus my mind, regain my health and prioritize my family. I would really love to get back to releasing a pattern every month or two, but that likely won’t happen until my little ones grow older and become more independent. That said, I WILL try my very best to continue designing and writing crochet patterns. It is my favorite hobby after all and I sure hope to continue.

Today, I am sharing a simple (free) crochet pattern for a vanilla ice cream sandwich. Did you know August 2nd marks the National Ice Cream Sandwich Day? I thought it would be perfect to release this pattern today. I made this for my little one’s play kitchen, for when he loves to open up his ‘cafe’ and ‘sell’ all the crochet food I’ve given him!

PATTERN INSTRUCTIONS

Cookie (make 2)

With color A/brown, ch 21.

Row 1: Work 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across. Ch 1, turn. (20)

Rows 2-10: Work 1 sc in each st across. Ch 1, turn. (20)

Row 11: Work sc around the whole cookie. Specifically, I worked 1 sc in next 20 sts, then continue around the side of the cookie, work 9 sc across as evenly as possible (about 1 sc per row). Repeat. Finally, sl st to first sc to join. (58)

Fasten off and weave in ends.

Block cookie if necessary. I sprayed water all over mine and just let it dry overnight (the lazy way!).

Ice Cream

Join color B/white in the back bump (see thumbnail 1 below) of the first stitch of the cookie (wrong side facing you).

Row 1: Work 1 sc in same st as join and in each of the next 19 sts. Continue working sc around the short side (9 sts), long side (20 sts) and short side again (9 sts) of the cookie. Sl st to first sc to join. (58)

Row 2: Ch 1. Work 1 sc in same st as join and in each remaining st around. Sl st to first sc to join. (58)

Rows 3-5: Repeat row 2.

Fasten off, leaving a tail long enough for sewing ice cream to the cookie.

Assembly

Now, we will join the other cookie to the ice cream. Line up the sts on the cookie with the ice cream. With long tail from ice cream, join cookie by going through the back bump of the last row of the cookie and the back loops of the ice cream, all the way around. Remember to stuff with fiberfill before closing the ice cream sandwich!
