I don’t know about you guys, but my kids (and adults in the family too) love freezies! However, whenever my kids eat a freezie, they need to wrap a napkin or paper towel around it so that their hands aren’t cold. Well, here is a great solution to the cold hand problem….FREEZIE HOLDERS! My kids love using their special holder while they enjoy their treat, and it saves a bunch of napkins too!! I call this a win!
Another super handy thing is that that this freezie holder can slide up the freezie as it is eaten, rather than staying at the bottom.
This is a super quick and easy, very beginner friendly pattern for freezie holders.
- Worsted weight yarn – You can use any yarn, but I used a mixture Caron Simply Soft and Red Heart Super Saver.
- 4.0 mm (G) crochet hook
- Yarn needle for sewing pieces on and weaving in ends.
- Ch – chain
- Sl St – slip stitch
- SC – single crochet
- Joining – at the end of each round, be sure to join by making your slip stitch in the top of the first single crochet stitch of the round, instead of in the chain 1 space. This will create a more hidden seam.
- Starting each round – start each round in the same stitch as the chain 1. Do not skip to the next stitch.
- Color Changes – if you are doing color changes, join the new color when you join at the end of each round
Round 1: Chain 12 stitches, join with a sl st to the first chain, ch 1. Be careful not to twist the chain when you join it. (12)
*My chain of 12 was 2.5 inches and I found that this fit a regular sized freezie perfectly. You may need to go up or down a hook size or change your number of chain stitches to achieve this measurement. You will need to increase this a lot to fit a jumbo size freezie. For the jumbo size freezies, I followed this pattern, however, I used a 4.5mm hook and began with a starting chain of 14, instead of 12.
Round 2: SC in each stitch around, join to first SC, ch 1 (12)
Repeat round 2 until you have your desired length. I found that 3 inches was a good size for mine, which was 15 rows of SC.
Fasten off and weave in ends.
Now you need to test your freezie holder by putting it on a freezie and eating it. Well, you have to make sure it works, right?!
