Attach the Ice Cream and Cone Together

  1. Lay both the cone and ice cream upside down, with the cone on top of the ice cream.
  2. Attach the yarn needle to the 4-inch yarn tail and join the cone and ice cream together. The cone doesn’t have to be straight, just as the ice cream doesn’t have to be straight as well.
  3. Once the cone and ice cream are attached, you can weave in the remaining loose ends of the cone and trim the excess with scissors.
