Knit Ice-Cream Accessory for Oversized Sweater

We all love ice-cream, don't we? Especially, when were kids ice-cream was one of the most delicious food I could eat all day long. Those days are long gone, but my craving for ice-cream is still alive. Today I'd like to share with you an unusual type of gelato, the one made with needles, yarn, fur pom poms, buttons, and a bit of creativity. I hope you will enjoy knitting it and decorating one of your sweaters as I did with mine. There is one tricky part though - fixing all the pieces on a sweater, but don't worry I'll share my secrets with you :). Add a few thin strips to the cone first and fix it loosely to the sweater leaving enough space for the poms, then add pom poms, check if you like the way it looks and, if you satisfied, tighten everything. If not, then reposition the cone and poms till you find the perfect look ;). This way you can easily detach your ice-cream before the laundry.

Ice-cream cone is ready. Feel free to use ice cream accessory to decorate any of your knitted or crocheted items such as hat, scarfs, cardigans or sweaters. Take a look at my pattern of knit oversized sweater for kids and adults.

Each fur pom pom has two thin strips that will help to attach and in case of laundry detach it.
