Unicorn Ice Pop Holders – Free Crochet Pattern

Summer is rapidly coming to an end and school days are right around the corner, but I couldn’t resist making these cuties!

Let’s be honest, my kids eat popsicles all year long, so it’s always popsicle season here anyway!

I love these open ended holders, because the are the right size for kids to hold, plus they slide up as the popsicle gets smaller!

There is also a free pattern for Monster Ice Pop Holders and Girly Ice Pop Holders.
