Ice Cream Bucket

from Frugal Knitting Haus
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Ice Cream Bucket
Ice Cream Bucket

Pattern Description:

Knit up ?fun? gingham covers for those unused ice cream pails! OR use a 5 quart pail. This is a nice pattern for ?country dcor? or any dcor. Knit up the cover in rounds with easy graph, on US # 6 knitting needles, and worsted weight yarn. Directions tell you how to knit the handle cover too! This works up rather quickly on a 24 inch circular needle. Use the finished bucket for a yarn tote, knitting or crochet tote, magazine holder, mail holder, holder for small toys. You will think of many uses for this. It really transforms an ordinary plastic ice cream bucket into something special!
