I used an H hook for these, and I love this yarn brand from Hobby Lobby (feel free to use whatever colors you like) you will also need some form of stuffing :)
R1 - sc 3 in magic ring (3)
R2 - sc around (3)
R3 - 2 sc in each sc around (6)
R4 - sc around (6)
R5 - sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc around (9)
R6 - sc around (9)
R7 - sc in next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc around (12)
R8 - sc around (12)
Keep increasing this way until cone is desired size. I normally stop at 36 sc around at round 24. Whatever size you make the cone, make sure that the stitch count is divisible by six. fasten off when you believe the cone is large enough.
R1 - sc 6 in magic ring. (6)
R2 - sc 2 in each sc around. (12)
R3 - sc in next sc, sc 2 in next sc around. (18)
R4 - sc in next 2 sc, sc 2 in next sc around. (24)
R5 - sc in next 3 sc, sc 2 in next sc around. (30)
R6 - sc in next 4 sc, sc 2 in next sc around. (36)
If you made the cone larger than this, then increase as established until the stitch count of the scoop matches the stitch count of the cone.
At this point, continue to sc around until the scoop rounds out and looks tall enough (I usually do six rounds. it may be less if you made the cone/scoop smaller, may be more if you made both larger)
Now for the fun part. in front loops only, skip next stitch, 5 dc in next stitch, skip 1 stitch and slip stitch into the next stitch. this will make a nice shell looking pattern around the edge. Continue that pattern around the edge of the cone. fasten off, leaving a long end for sewing.
Cherry on top!
R1 - sc 4 in magic ring (4)
R2 - 2 sc in each sc around (8)
R3 & 4 - sc around (8)
R5 - decrease over next 2 sc around (4) fasten off, Go ahead and stuff this,
Chain 8, turn, slip stitch in each chain, fasten off (you can make the stem longer or shorter that this depending on how you you want it to look)
Assembly - First, Sew the stem to the center of the scoop. Once the stem is secure on the scoop, we’re going to thread it through the cherry. This is a little tricky. one thing you can try is thread a scrap piece of yarn through the end of a stem, and put that end through the bottom of the cherry up to the top, and carefully work the cherry down on the stem. once the cherry is in place pull the scrap yarn out of the stem. Sew the cherry to the scoop. Stuff the cone and scoop firmly, and sew the scoop to the cone (since the stitch count matches, this should be very easy.)
And that should be it! If you have any questions, send me an ask. (this is the first pattern i’ve ever written out, please contact me about anything that’s confusing.)
