Return to the remaining front loops of the last round of the cone and crochet a hem – a round of hdc’s: the scoop is facing down, insert your hook into a remaining front loop (it does not matter which loop), take color 1 (Photo 6) and pull up a loop, ch 2, 1 hdc in the same loop (Photo 7), then (hdc, 2 hdc in one loop) * 14 times, hdc, slst into the first hdc. Cut the yarn, pull the end of yarn through the last stitch and thread through the needle, guide the yarn to the inside of the ice cream, and fasten off.
If you want to add some sparkles, take the yarn needle, the yarn(s) of your choice, and make some little spots at different places.
