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

 Grin Thanks everyone! I had a great time creating this one, I was always complaining about my frozen hands, and especially since we have been having a super cold winter here in Washington state... I'll never give up my icecream!!!
