Celebrate Ice Cream Day with Ice Cream Yarn!

Ice Cream Day is coming up on July 22nd, and we’ve got the perfect way to celebrate. In addition to getting a scoop of your favorite creamy treat, grab a skein of our Ice Cream Yarn! This yarn is softer-than-soft-serve, and perfect for baby projects. If you have a little person to craft for, or a baby shower coming up, then check out our patterns below.

Ice Cream Day Treats

Treat Yourself with Ice Cream Yarn

Our Ice Cream Yarn is soft and very easy-care, so it’s perfect for projects for littles. The self-striping colorways are delightful, and there are 18 of them to choose from! Plus, you’ll get a whole project out of just one skein. Either one ball for a garment, or two for a blanket. Each 3.5oz (100g) skein measures 394yd (360m), and the weight is CYC 3 Light.

Patterns to Scoop Up: Knits

There’s almost nothing cuter than knit garments in wee sizes, so here are three to order! First, the Sugar and Spice Shorts Set (Knit) features adorable comfy shorts and a sweet vest. Then, if you’re thinking of ordering a set, the Little Weekend Set (Knit) is cuter than a bug’s ear! Here’s the Little Weekend Top (Knit) and Little Weekend Pants (Knit), which each take 2 skeins. Lastly, the Blueberry Hill Cardi & Hat (Knit). Make now and gift in time for cooler weather this fall.

Ice Cream Day

Checkerboard Blanket (Knit)

Finally, of course we want to share a baby blanket! The Checkerboard Blanket (Knit) takes only two skeins of our Ice Cream Yarn, but the color-striping is perfectly planned. It’s not only cute, but very cozy, too.

Patterns to Crochet by the Cone

Our Sweet Shoppe Dress and Cardi (Crochet) is almost too sweet! This tank dress will be comfy, but the pleated twirly skirt will be a fast-favorite. And for an accessories set that has everything, check out the Snips & Sails Hat, Booties, and Mitts (Crochet). Hard to believe, but you can make the whole set with just one skein! Another one-skein project is our One Ball Wonder Vest (Crochet). It’s an easy project that will be a big hit.

Maybe you’re crafting for an older kid, and need an idea for a cool back-to-school look! Another big hit garment idea is our Easy Layering Poncho (Crochet). With just two skeins, it’s hard to believe this project is only a Level 2 pattern. This poncho is not only easy to wear & wash, but stylish, too.

Ice Cream Day

Park Slope Hexagon Afghan (Crochet)

Finally, our Park Slope Hexagon Afghan (Crochet) is unstoppably scrumptious. It’s a new take on granny squares, with fun patterns and textures that will delight a baby’s senses. It’ll also be a fun project to work on while traveling or on vacation this summer.

Celebrate Ice Cream Day

Whichever project is your flavor, celebrate Ice Cream Day with us this year! Our Ice Cream Yarn is perfect for crafting for young people, which is a fun way to celebrate Ice Cream Day indeed. But whether or not you’ll be eating ice cream on the day, you can definitely celebrate with our Ice Cream Yarn. Once you try it, you’ll be hooked!
