King Louis XIV congratulate him personally for his product. Café Procopio could be considered the first ice cream shop. Vanilla and chocolate ice cream started to be prepared under Louis XIV reign, later the ones of milk cream, until arriving to the actual ice cream.

STITCHES AND TECHNIQUES USED


MAGIC RING
Wrap yarn around two fingers, leaving 7cm long tail. Insert hook right to left under the two rows and pick the strand up (the one that leads to the skein), pulling the yarn back under the two rows, YO and pull through the loop (do not count as first stitch). Keep working the following stitches into the ring. Remove the ring from your fingers and pull the tail end to tight the ring.

CHAIN (ABBREVIATION ch)
YO and pull the yarn through the loop on the hook.

SINGLE CROCHET (ABBREVIATION: sc)
Insert hook into the stitch, YO and pull the yarn through the stitch (2 loops on your hook), YO again and pull through both loops on the hook in one go.

INVISIBLE DECREASE
Insert the hook into the front loop of the first stitch and then directly also into the front loop of the second stitch that you want to decrease (3 loops on the hook). YO and pull through both front loops on the hook in one go. YO again and pull through both loops on the hook in one go.

BACK LOOP ONLY (ABBREVIATION: BLO)
The back loop is furthest away from you. If the crochet pattern says to work through back loop only (e.g. BLO), you will work into this back loop only.

FRONT LOOP ONLY (ABBREVIATION: FLO)
The front loop is the loop closest to
you. If the crochet pattern says to work through front loop only (e.g. FLO), you will work your stitches just into this front loop.

CLOSING REMAINING STITCHES (THROUGH THE FRONT LOOPS)
Cut yarn, pull the yarn tail through the last stitch completely and thread yarn tail onto yarn/tapestry needle. Insert needle through the front loops only of each remaining stitch from outside to inside. Pull gently to close the gap.

INVISIBLE FASTEN OFF
Cut yarn, pull the yarn tail through the last stitch completely and thread yarn tail onto yarn/tapestry needle. Skip one stitch then insert needle into the next stitch under booth loops of the second stitch of the last round. Next, insert needle back into the same stitch that the yarn tail is coming from but into the back loop only. This creates a closing stitch. Weave tail into wrong side before trimming.

INCREASE (ABBREVIATION: inc)
To work an extra stitch, you simply need to work into the same stitch more than once. Work one stitch as normal. Insert hook into same stitch you’ve just worked and complete another st.
