Let’s get started
Please read through entire pattern before starting
Make a MAR. You can also ch4 and join with a slst to form a ring.
Round 1: 8 sc into the MAR. Join with a slst. (8)
Round 2: ch1, 2sc into each st around. Join with a slst. (16)
Round 3: ch1, 1sc in the same st, 2sc in the next st. *1sc in the next st, 2sc in the next st, rep from * to end. Join with a slst. (24)
Round 4: ch1, *1sc into the next 2 sts, 2 sc into the next st. rep from * to end. Join with a slst. (32)
Round 5: ch1, 1 hdc into each st around. (32)
Measure gauge at this point, you want your base to measure 3.25” across.
While crocheting Round 5 you will notice your work may curl slightly, this is totally normal. To make it easier to measure the base I turn the work so the wrong side is showing and lay flat.
Round 6: ch1, sc-blo into each st around. Join with a slst. (32) See special abbreviations towards the end of post for pictures of the sc-blo
Round 7: ch2, skip the next st, work 1 sc into the next st, * ch1, skip the next st, work 1 sc into the next st, rep from * to last 2 sts, ch1, skip the next st, join round with a slst. (32 = 16 sc, 16 ch1 spaces)
Images for the Bobble Stitch and the Partial Bobble Stitch are towards the end of this post.
Round 8: ch2, 1 bobble into the space between each sc until last space. In the last space do a partial bobble. join round with a slst into the space between the ch2 and the first bobble. (16 bobbles)
Round 9: ch2, work 1 sc into the space between the bobble * ch1, work 1 sc into the space between the bobble, rep from * to the last bobble, ch1, join round with a slst. (32 = 16 sc, 16 ch1 spaces)
Round 10: rep round 8.
Round 11: rep round 9.
Round 12: rep round 8.
Round 13: ch1, sc into each st across. In this round you will sc into the top of the bobble and the space between each bobble, join round with a slst. (32)
Round 14: slst into the back loop of each st across.
Pull yarn through, cut yarn and weave in all yarn tails.
For a seamless join, weave your yarn tail over the first slst before weaving in the yarn tail and tying off. If you cut the yarn after completing the last slst from the final round and pull your yarn through you can take the yarn and stitch over the first slip stitch of the round for a seamless join. Then weave the yarn tail on the inside of the cozy and tie off.
Now you have a super cute ice cream pint cozy that will fit on most pint sized containers, even a mason jar!

Bobble Stitch: In this pattern I have made a slight modification to the bobble stitch and will refer to it as ‘bobble’ in this pattern. The bobble stitch combines the technique of the cluster stitch and shell technique. Shells are usually made using double crochet stitches and are formed by working several stitches into the same stitch (or space). Clusters are formed by working several stitches into different stitches then joining the tops into one stitch. The bobble stitch combines these techniques by working double crochet stitches up to the last yarn over into the same stitch, then joining the tops into a single top.
In this pattern you will be creating a bobble stitch by crocheting 3 double crochets up to the last yarn over into a chain 1 space then combining them into one stitch at the top. Then Ch1 to complete the bobble.
Completing the Modified Bobble Stitch
The Partial Bobble is pretty much the same as the regular bobble, you will do 2 double crochets up to the last yarn over then pull your working yarn through 3 loops on your hook. DO NOT CHAIN 1.
Remember, the ch2 at the beginning of each round of bobbles is the last part of the last bobble of the round. For the last bobble you will do a partial bobble, 2 double crochets up to the yarn over into a chain 1 space, then join the round with a slip stitch. You will not ch1 at the end of the partial bobble.
Single Crochet into the Back Loop Only: abbreviated in this pattern as sc-blo insert your hook and single crochet into the back loop only (highligted in blue), instead of going under both loops of the stitch from the round below.
Parenthesis () in this pattern indicate the number of stitches left at the end of a round.
Asterisks * are used in this pattern to indicate repetition of a sequence of stitches.
If you have the time I would appreciate it if you would visit my Etsy Shop, sales on tags and other printables help me out a lot so that I can keep adding free patterns like these on my blog. I love not having ads all over my site, I don’t want to add ads other than a few affiliate links here and there to my posts as I think ads really ruin the viewing experience.
