Who loves hot, lazy summer days?? We certainly do! But sometimes it is too hot, and it’s nice to have a cool treat. My kids have some allergies and we have to be careful what we get, but there are some freezies that they can all have and they love them. It’s a cool, sweet treat that tastes great…. but it also freezes their hands while they are trying to eat them! They tried using cloths to hold them, but they were too big, and paper towels did work unless they were dripped on. And then Mommy had an idea for something that would be a lot more fun when it came to eating freezies/ice pops/popsicles or whatever you prefer to call them. I started working on some holders or cozies, and my kids LOVE using them! Cold treat, warm hands… it’s all good!
Loving their freezie holders!
I had so many different ideas, but narrowed it down to 5 that I thought my kids and others would like best. The 5 holder patterns in this set are a shark, a fish, a snake, an ice cream cone, and a flower. The shark seems to be the most popular but the other designs come close behind!
Shark, Snake, Fish… so many colour options!
Flower and Ice Cream Cone Holders
These Freezie Holders are not too difficult to crochet. You do need to know the basic stitches, and be able to sew the different parts together. This is a great project for using up extra yarn, as they can be made up in so many different colour combinations. I have been using Bernat Handicrafter Cotton, just because it washes up so nicely, and these are likely to get dripped on! But you could use any worsted weight yarn you liked.
I will be giving away 2 copies of the patterns for these Freezie Holders! If you would like a chance to win a copy, please fill out the form below! You need to click on the red lettering that says “entry form”.
