May Ami CAL - Ice Cream, You Scream - Week Two

Posted on May 12, 2018 by Brenna Eaves | 0 Comments

Hi everyone, welcome back to this month's Ami CAL! Here we are at Week Two, and it's time to get started on our Mommy and Baby huggable ice creams!

 

Here's the supply list again, in case it passed you by.

We'll be making the Mama and the Baby scoops this week, then in Week Three, we'll give them a cone to sit in and add some small, fun details!

 

To achieve the larger size of this design with less overall work, we'll be holding two strands of worsted weight yarn together and using a size K hook. Make sure the tension is the same for both strands of yarn as you go!

 

Mama Scoop

With two strands of pink held together, ch 2 or make a magic loop.

1.  7 sc in 2nd ch from hook / magic loop (7)

2.  2 sc in each sc around (14)

3.  *2 sc in 1st sc, sc in next sc* rep *-* around (21) 

4.  *2 sc in 1st sc, sc in next 2 sc* rep *-* around (28)

5.  *2 sc in 1st sc, sc in next 3 sc* rep *-* around (35)

6.  *2 sc in 1st sc, sc in next 4 sc* rep *-* around (42)

7.  *2 sc in 1st sc, sc in next 5 sc* rep *-* around (49)

8.  sc in 1st 4 sc, *2 sc in next sc, sc in next 6 sc*, rep *-* 6x, sc in last 2 sc (55)

9.  sc in 1st 4 sc, *2 sc in next sc, sc in next 7 sc* rep *-* 6x, sc in last 3 sc (61)

10.  *2 sc in 1st sc, sc in next 8 sc* rep *-* 6x, 2 sc in next sc, sc in last 7 sc (69)

11-19.  sc in each sc around (69)

20. *sc dec, sc in next 8 sc* rep *-* 6x, sc dec, sc in last 7 sc (62)

21.  sc in each sc around (62)

22.  *sc dec, sc in next 7 sc* rep *-* 6x, sc dec, sc in last 6 sc (55)

23.  working in FLO, *skip 1st sc, 4 dc in next sc, skip next sc, slp st in next sc* rep *-* around

 

FO, leaving a very long tail to sew the scoop to the cone later.

Put the plastic eyes in between rounds 19-18 of the scoop, spaced about 5 stitches apart. 

Using black scrap yarn, embroider a small smile centered between the eyes, as pictured. 

If making this project for a nursery, I recommend embroidering all facial details to prevent small parts from becoming a choking hazard. 

 

 

Baby Scoop

With two strands of white held together, ch 2 or make a magic loop.

1.  7 sc in 2nd ch from hook / magic loop (7)

2.  2 sc in each sc around (14)

8.  sc in 1st 4 sc, *2 sc in next sc, sc in next 6 sc*, rep *-* 6x, sc in last 2 sc (55)

FO, leaving a long tail to sew the baby scoop to the top of the mama scoop.

Put the plastic eyes in between rounds 14-15 of the scoop, spaced about 4 stitches apart. I put mine in crooked to give the little scoop a playful, lopsided appearance.

Using black scrap yarn, embroider a small smile centered between the eyes, as pictured. 

If making this project for a nursery, I recommend embroidering all facial details to prevent small parts from becoming a choking hazard.

A Note About Comments

Furls Crochet Team

November 9th, 2016

Hey everybody! Shortly into our CALs we realized that our out-of-the-box blog comment system wouldn't let us reply to your comments.

We've since installed Disqus, above, which allows you guys to respond to each other and us to reply to your questions; seems like a no-brainer!

We will continue to display existing comments from the old comment system on all existing blog posts. All future commenting will be done through Disqus. Enjoy!
