Ice Cream Cone Applique

By Janet Carrillo "damn it Janet, let's crochet!"
Ideas on how to use these appliques...
*These would be great to apply to any project.
*You can add them to kitchen towels,
*turn them into a keychain or fridge magnet.
*You can also make several and make a garland.
*Attach a ribbon to make them into bookmarks.
*Add them to the front of a homemade card.

approx. 2.75"height x 1.5"length
...but can vary based on yarn and hook size.

*Crochet hook size: 3.25mm (D)
*Worsted Weight Yarn: Beige (5yds), Aran (3yds) & Toffee (3yds)
*Stitch Markers to mark your rounds
*Felt: Black & Red
*Tapestry Needle
*Matching Thread
*Hot Glue

PATTERN NOTES - must-read...
 Numbers in ( ) at the end of each round/row indicate the total number of stitches.
 Always use stitch markers to mark your rounds.
 There's no need to sl st and/or ch when going to the next round unless stated to do so.
 Always do the 1st stitch where you slip stitch from the previous round.
 The chain, in the beginning, does NOT count as one stitch unless stated otherwise.
 You slip stitch on the first sc, not on top of the chain 1.

Invisible join - this VIDEO explains how to do this technique.
Other side of the foundation chains - this VIDEO explains how to do this technique.

CONE with beige
  Row 1: ch9, dc in 3rd ch from hook (skip chs count as one dc), dc in next ch, hdc in next 3 chs, sc in next ch, 4sc in last ch other side of the foundation chains sc in next ch, hdc in next 3 chs, dc in next 3 chs (18)
  Row 2: ch1, do not turn work, sl st across the top and sl st in each st around (18)
F/O, secure and weave in the ends.

ICE CREAM with color of choice
  Rnd 1: 6sc in magic ring (6)
  Rnd 2: 2sc in each st around (12)
  Rnd 3: sc in next st, ch1, 3hdc in next st, ch1, sl st in next st, ch1, 3hdc in next st, ch1, sl st in next st, ch1, 3hdc in next st, ch1, sc in next 6 sts (18)
F/O, secure and weave in the ends.

     I recommend pinning the pieces in place before sewing them to make sure you have them in the position you like best before sewing. (Most people like to use the yarn at the end of the finished pieces to sew them in place, but I personally like to use matching thread).
     TIP...For anything that I’m going to be using felt, I like to first sketch it out on white paper and make a stencil of what I need. Then cut it out. Then tape the stencil to the felt and cut it out.
     ICE CREAM to the CONE...sew the ice cream on top of the cone.
     EYES...using black felt make 2 tiny circles and place them in the position you like best. You can search online for "kawaii faces" or anything along those lines to get some ideas.
     MOUTH...using black embroidery floss or thread, embroider the mouth. Make it however you like, the possibilities are endless.
     CHEEKS...you can use pink felt and make tiny circles or you can use makeup blush and apply some on each side of the eyes using a q-tip. Or embroider lines underneath the eyes with pink thread.
     CHERRY...using a red felt make a tiny rounded heart and glue it on top of the ice cream.
     CHERRY STEM...embroider black thread through the back and cut it to the length you desired. To make the thread stiff and for it to stay in place, simply applied glue and let it dry.
     OPTIONAL...if you are going to turn it into a fridge magnet, glue a small magnet in the back.
