Ice Cream Cozy Details

Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream Cozy Made as a First Project by DBF:
Yarn: Red Heart Acrylic in Camouflage
Needles: Began on #8 Denise Circulars, then he switched to #8 straight Clover Bamboos
Technique: Garter Stitch knit flat: Knit on about 40 stitches. Knit a few rows. Measure against pint. Reduce 3 stitches every other row until good size is reached. Knit straight until matches the height of the pint. One turning row of purl stitches only. Knit one row, reduce some more, knit a few more rows to make a smaller base ledge. Draw end through and sew up side.
The flower-pot shape has an added benefit of catching melting-ice drips, and the Quarter-sized hole in the bottom is useful for pushing out the empty pint.
