Pattern Description:

What is your favorite flavor of ice cream during the Summer? Vanilla with multicolor sprinkles? Mint with chocolate sprinkles? Plain chocolate? Show it off in this super fun perfect for Summer t-shirt! Made with Knit Picks Comfy Sport, it is not only knit with a lightweight cotton yarn, it is soft, comfy, and machine washable too! The ice cream intarsia chart is a blast to knit and wear, and the bows on the back offer some flirtiness and flair. Adorn the bows with your favorite buttons and your back will be the talk of the town. Enjoy!

This top is knit as one piece back and forth from the bottom up, and calls for a circular needle to accommodate all of the stitches. The ice cream chart requires approximately 14 yards of each color for the cone and ice cream. I used Comfy Sport for the main color and CotLin for the Ice Cream and Cone. The sprinkles can be made using scrap pieces of yarn, I used Patons Grace in Lotus, Wildberry, Orchid, Sunkissed, Lemon Lime, and Aquifer! The Ice Cream chart is 27 sts wide and 68 rows high. You could use another chart of a similar size if you wish, this unicorn would work and be quite fun! ;)

The bows on the back are added after the top is knit, and the pattern has instructions for knitting bow centers (shown on purple version) or using buttons (shown on teal version).
