Crochet Mini Ice Cream Cone (Pattern Highlight #3)


Welcome to the third Pattern Highlight Tuesday, where I share my favorite crochet patterns.

Like the first post in this series, I'm sharing another pattern from HappyBerry Crochet! This time, it's for a miniature crochet ice cream cone.

Isn't it cute?


I love how it turned out!

As far as skill level goes, I'd say it's good for beginners who've already learned the basic stitches. Sure, this pattern might look complicated, but there aren't any super-advanced stitches.

Happy crocheting!
