Free Pattern: Boo-Boo Buddy Ice Pack Cover
When my #1 gets a bump, she likes a little baggie of ice. It always has to have a towel, though. Kitchen towels are hard for a two-year-old to keep around a baggie of ice, so I came up with these cuties to hold her little ice packs. This would also be good for kids who like to take the ice out of the bag and scatter it.
Small amount cotton yarn
5mm (H/8) hook
Ch - chain
Dc - double crochet
Sc - single crochet
Instructions (make 2):
Round 1: Magic Ring, ch 3 (counts as first dc), 11 dc. (12 dc) Pull magic ring tight, join to top ch of ch 3.
Round 2: Ch 3, dc in same ch. 2 dc in each dc around. (24 dc) Join to top ch of ch 3.
Round 3: Ch 3, dc in same ch. 2 dc in next dc. dc in next dc. *2 dc in next 2 dcs. Dc in next dc. Repeat from * around. (40 dcs) Join to top ch of ch 3.
Round 4: Ch 1. Loosely sc around. Join, finish off. Weave in ends.
Assembly: With wrong sides together, loosely crab stitch two sides together for 31 scs. Continue to crab stitch one side for the final 9 scs. Finish off. With same side facing, crab stitch the other 9 scs. Finish off.
Sew button securely to Round 3 directly under the middle of the opening. Join yarn to middle st of open sides, tightly ch 15 (or long enough to go around button). Join to same st, finish off. Weave in ends.
If using appliques, sew on loosely so that the pack can still stretch. You can also add ears and a face, like I did here, to make a little bear. :)
To use: Put 3-5 ice cubes in a sandwich baggie, seal bag. Put inside pack, close with button. Put on kid's boo-boo.
