Raccoon and Red Panda Ice Pop Holder Crochet Pattern

ice pop holder

With record heat over most of the country this summer, it has been so hard to keep cool. I was lucky as a child that my mother always made homemade ice cream for my July birthday parties. This year you can have a Woodland Animal birthday party or a Red Panda birthday party and make these great party favors – ice pop holders! Use the same pattern but add different faces to make either a Racoon or a Red Panda freezer pop cozy.

Ice pop holder measures approximately 5.5” long (including tail).

Cotton worsted yarn

20 yards MC (gray for raccoon, red for red panda)

5 yards CC (black for raccoon, white for red panda)
