Ice Pop Sleeve
1/4 a skein of Peaches & Creme or Sugar 'n Cream kitchen cotton, or any worsted weight cotton yarn
(this is a great opportunity for stash busting!)
4 US6 dpns (or could do magic loop on a circular!)
darning needle for weaving in ends and sewing tube shut
Not critical for this project, although I recommend going down one needle size from what your yarn calls for so that the resulting stitch is tighter.
CO 14 sts, dividing stitches across three dpns (4 sts per 2dpn, 5 sts on the last). Join to begin knitting in the round, being careful not to twist.
Knit every stitch (stockinette stitch) until the tube measures 4 to 5 inches. (or whatever length you'd like!) In the photos, the solid green one is 4 inches and the blue/green one is 5 inches.
Bind off loosely and weave in the end. Now you have 2 options:
Option 1: At the beginning of the work, use the tail to sew shut the tube using a darning needle. Example is the blue/green/white one in the photos. This keeps the ice pop securely inside the sleeve.
Option 2: Weave in the other end leaving both ends open. This allows for the sleeve to be moved up and down the ice pop as needed. (green version in the photos)
Add your favorite ice pop and enjoy without freezing your fingers!
