Hey I'm a newbie, to Craftster and to bulletin boards... but I have been crocheting since I was 4... Hope you enjoy this quick little project, I made this Icecream sleeve for my Ben and Jerry's with some old yarn I had around and have had lots of requests from friends...I'd be happy to share the process if interested (haven't ever written a pattern but willing to try)...

Ok, so before the server meltdown, someone else asked about the pattern/ design so here's a quick description about how I did it; I will do an actual pattern at some point....

The stitches in the band are a simple Catherine Wheel; which needs multiples of 10+6 stitches (like; 26, 36, 46, etc)...
SO I made a simple round for the bottom, working in all SC and I think it was about 6 rows so basically;
chain 3 and join to make a ring
Row 1: 6 single crochet into ring, join
Row 2: 2sc in each stitch, join (12)
Row 3: *1sc, 2sc in next*, do this 6 times (18)
Row 4: *2sc, 2sc in next*, do this 6 times (24)
Row 5: *3sc, 2sc in next*, do this 6 times (30)
Row 6: *4sc, 2sc in next*, do this 6 times (36) = this gives you the right number to do the catherine wheel


Row7-10 or so; sc...***I made sure it was slightly smaller than the bottom of the icecream container to fit snugly but you can decrease after the catherine wheel if it gets too big...

Row 10ish- start catherine wheel

After catherine wheel band go back to sc until it is tall enough to hit the top of the icecream container.

Create a handle with a chain that fits snugly over your hand, and sc a few rows on it, sew to top and bottom of cozie.

TIPS: At the end of the circle base (36 stitches) you can start your catherine wheel, or as I did, sc a few more rows to begin the sides (when I am making a side to something, my first row (row 7) I sc in the back loop only making a "rib" and a crisper corner/angle for the side), or just keep sc to the top and finish with a handle.  I check for size in the middle of the project and I did decrease (only one stitch each) on the last 4 rows to make it a little more snug at the top to it would stay in place and not slip as I dug into my icecream!!!! It's pretty basic... if you want the catherine wheel pattern I'll find it for you...

I re-read the pattern and fixed a few things... I was going between a pattern and a description and that was confusing... hope the fix is more clear! Enjoy your icecream all year long!!!

Ok, so the catherine wheel is crazy but so cool, and you can do so many things with it...
Basic Catherine wheel;

special abbreviations CL=cluster= work { yo, insert hook, yo, draw loop through, yo draw loop through 2 loops} over the number of stitches indicated then yo and pull through all loops on hook
tch=triple chain or three chain
chain multiple of 10 + 6 (so, 16,26,36,46, etc.)
Add 1 more chain for base chain


1st row (wrong side); 1sc into 2nd chain from hook, 1sc into next ch, * skip 3ch, 7dc into next ch, skip 3ch, 1sc into each of next 3ch, rep from * to last 4 ch, skip 3ch, 4dc into last ch, turn.
2nd row; 1 ch, 1 sc into first st, 1sc into next st * 3ch, 1CL over next 7 sts, 3ch, 1sc into each of next 3 sts; rep from* to last 4 sts, 3ch 1CL over last 4 sts, skip tch (turn chain from previous row), turn
3rd row; 3ch (count as 1dc), 3dc into first st * skip 3ch, 1sc into each of next 3sc, skip 3ch, 7dc into loop which closed next CL; rep from * to end to finishishing with skip 3ch, 1sc into each of last 2sc, skip tch, turn
4th row; 3ch (count as 1dc), skip first st, 1CL over next 3 sts, * 3ch, 1sc into each of next 3 sts, 3ch, 1CL over next 7sts; rep from * finishing with 3ch, 1sc into next st, 1sc into top of tch, turn
5th row; 1ch, 1sc into each of first 2sc, * skip 3ch, 7dc into loop which closed the next CL, skip 3ch, 1sc into each of next 3sc; rep from * ending skip 3ch, 4dc into top of tch, turn.
rep 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th rows.

*** so if you're making the icecream cozie, you will already have a stitch count at 36, so DONT add one more, but if you want to use this for say a blanket or something, and you want it 46 stitches long, then start with a 47 chain base...
when I modified this pattern to fit in a continuous round, I simply slip stitched at the end of the row, and TURN, just kept going from the next row, basically what happens is you finish the row in the middle of a cluster, and you start your next round in the middle of a cluster, it works out great, but if you are not a skilled maker-upper, it might be a little tricky... please don't hesitate to ask q's or point out p's, I am a first time pattern/instruction writer. I usually have you in front of me and I can wave my hands around to help me describe stuff!!! Grin

Ok, crap, since I like to make things up and follow patterns at the same time, I told you all the wrong thing... when I added the catherine wheel, I actually did turn the project after I joined the round... so I am modifying the pattern as of this minute to reflect the turn (the first attempt at putting the catherine wheel in the round, I did not turn and it didn't turn out right, so I fixed it but forgot that was the route I went!!!)...sorry, hope this didn't screw up anybody's Ben and Jerry's enjoyment!!!  Grin

Hahahhaaa... the gallon cozy! Oh, maybe it could be used at like a birthday party (I couldn't live with myself if I thought someone was going to sit down and eat a whole gallon of icecream themself!) or some other event where a bunch of people are going to be served at one time! OH~! Have you seen those 5 gallon tubs of icecream at costco!? That would be hilarious! I might do one as a joke! My daughter's b-day is in May, and we are totally thinking of doing a whole neighborhood invited party... the plans include one of those tunbs of icecream.... Hmmm....
