Helix Ice Pop Cosy - A free pattern by Lullaby Lodge...

We are just heading into the second week of the summer holidays here in the Uk and we have had some really warm weather lately.  So what better way to cool down than with some delicious ice pops.  Your kids will love these!  These cosies will keep their little hands warm and keep the ice pops cool.  They are so quick and simple to make, you can whip them up in no time at all.



Helix Ice Pop Cosy


Materials

Aran / Worsted cotton yarn small amounts 
Darning needle
Stitch marker (optional)

Hook

4.5mm (7)

Size

Variable

Ability

Beginner

Abbreviations US Terms (UK Conversion)

sc – single crochet (double crochet)
ch - chain
sl st - slip stitch
st(s) - stitch(s)
pm - place marker

Other notes: I used Drops Paris to make my cosies, but you can use any cotton Aran / worsted weight yarn to make yours.  The cosies are made by working with two colours simultaneously in a spiral.  Move stitch marker up after each round if using.  As the size of ice pops can vary, if you find your cosy is too big, go down a hook size and if you find it is a little tight go up a hook size.


With colour A ch3 and join with sl st to form ring.

Round 1 ch1 (does not count as st), 3sc into ring, pm in first sc (if using).  Pull up a long loop so you don’t lose your stitches and remove hook.  Join colour B into ring with sl st, ch1, 3sc into ring.  (6sc)


Do not join in the round we will be working in a spiral…

Round 2 with B 2sc in each of the next 3sts.  Pull up a long loop so you don’t lose your stitches and remove hook.  Insert hook back into colour A and 2sc in each of the next 3sts.  (12sc)



Round 3 with A sc in next 6sts, with B sc in next 6sts.  (12sc)



Repeat round 3 until your cosy is desired size, (I made mine a total of 18 rounds).


Final round with A sl st into next st and fasten off, with B sl st into next st and fasten off and weave in ends.


You can really go to town with colours and they are so fast to work up you won't be able to stop at only one...
