I had a request from a good friend to make a crochet ice cream cone keychain... how can I refuse?? These are so fun and quick! Perfect pool side project, don't you think? These little crochet key chains would be so cute on a little back pack or bag, too! Or leave off the chain and you have a cute pretend ice cream cone!
These cute crochet key chains are about 3 inches tall! I think they would be a great gift, or perfect to sell at a craft fair! Or just for yourself 😉 Either way, you will have so much fun, you won't stop until you have made one in every color!
The only place I found the rings with the chains attached was on Amazon here.
This is a perfect project for scrap yarn or those half skeins. I recently got this yarn winder and I LOVE it. Seriously a game changer if you want to organize your stash. And it is so nice to crochet from a cake than a messy skein.
Ready to make you own ice cream cone key chain?
Round 1: 6 SC in a magic circle
Round 2: SC in each around (6)
Round 3: SC INC in each around (12)
Round 4-5: SC in each around (12)
Round 6: SC in the first, SC INC in the next. Repeat around. (18)
Rounds 7-8: SC in each around. (18)
Round 9: SC in first two, SC INC in the next. Repeat around. (24)
Round 10-11: SC in each around. (24)
Switch to ice cream color.
Rounds 12-16: SC in each around.
Round 17: SC in the first two, INV DEC in the next. Repeat around. (18)
Round 18: SC in the first, INV DEC in the next. Repeat around. (12)
Round 19: INV DEC in each around. (6)
Make sure to stuff the top as well as you can (use your stuffing stick to make it through the small hole). Fasten off and sew the top closed. Using the yarn tail, sew on the key chain through the bottom loop. Then weave the end through the top (don't pull too tight or it will make puckers.)
Now turn it so the tip of the cone is pointing up and away from you. Attach yarn the same color as the ice cream part to the point where you changed the color from cone to ice cream. Chain 2. DC around each stitch following the bottom portion of the ice cream. Slip stitch to the first stitch and fasten off. Weave in ends.
