Tatted Ice Cream Cone

It’s been a hot summer in Colorado. Earlier this month, I was hot and was trying to talk myself out of cooling down with some ice cream. Then it hit me–why not tat an ice cream cone instead? So I did, and saved myself a bunch of calories in the process!

This is an intermediate-level 2-shuttle pattern using simple rings and chains. It was tatted usingFlora size 20 thread.
