Quite a clever idea that I wish I had thought of myself! It makes an unusual, out of the ordinary gift for someone whom you don't know what to buy for- because everyone loves ice cream! You can't go wrong with this pattern using just three rows to complete one sleeve.

This sounds like a great idea. I have 1 question. What does fpdc and bpdc mean?

FPDC = front post double crochet and BPDC = back post double crochet
