See that little ridge the BLO round left? Hold your ice cream with the cone facing away from you, join yarn (ice cream color) and work (3 sc) in one stitch, sk 1 st, around. Break yarn and weave in ends.
I'm getting spoiled working with a tripod, my handheld photography is slipping
Ombre yarns work really well when making sweets, they can look like swirled ice cream and frosting. The yarn I used on  the example reminds me of mixed berry sherbet.

Subspace Suitcase

 

I am a big fan of the Scott Pilgrim series by Bryan Lee O'Malley. My favorite character and the one I identify with the most is Ramona Flowers. If you haven't read the graphic novels I highly suggest you do, they are wonderful.
I made this pattern for my cosplay of Ramona but it turned out so well I want to share it with you.
The pattern I used for the star can be found here.

What you need:
 Worsted weight yarn in desired colors
(I made the video game themed one so I used aqua, hot pink, and white)
Size I (5.5mm) hook
Scissors
Yarn Needle
Sewing needle and thread
Zipper
Plastic canvas (optional)
Fabric for lining (optional)



Suitcase side 1:
Work in continuous rounds with main color

  • Round 1: work 12 dc in magic ring -12 st
  • Round 2: work 2 dc in each dc around - 24 st
  • Round 3:  *2 dc in next st, dc in next st, rep from * around - 36 st
  • Round 4:  *2 dc in next st, dc in each of next 2 sts, rep from * around - 48 st
  • Round 5:  *2 dc in next st, dc in each of next 3 sts, rep from * around - 60 st
  • Round 6:  *2 dc in next st, dc in each of next 4 sts, rep from * around - 72 st
  • Round 7:  *2 dc in next st, dc in each of next 5 sts, rep from * around - 84 st
  • Round 8:  *2 dc in next st, dc in each of next 6 sts, rep from * around - 96 st
  • Round 9: *2 dc in next st, dc in each of next 7 sts, rep from * around - 108 st
  • Round 10: dc in each dc around, BLO -108 st
  • Round 11: dc in each dc around -108 st
  • Row 12: dc 54 break yarn -54 st
  • Row 13: join yarn and start of last row, dc in each dc across -54 st
  • break yarn and weave in ends
Suitcase side 2:
Work in continuous rounds with main color

  • Round 1: work 12 dc in magic ring -12 st
  • Round 2: work 2 dc in each dc around - 24 st
  • Round 3:  *2 dc in next st, dc in next st, rep from * around - 36 st
  • Round 4:  *2 dc in next st, dc in each of next 2 sts, rep from * around - 48 st
  • Round 5:  *2 dc in next st, dc in each of next 3 sts, rep from * around - 60 st
  • Round 6:  *2 dc in next st, dc in each of next 4 sts, rep from * around - 72 st
  • Round 7:  *2 dc in next st, dc in each of next 5 sts, rep from * around - 84 st
  • Round 8:  *2 dc in next st, dc in each of next 6 sts, rep from * around - 96 st
  • Round 9: *2 dc in next st, dc in each of next 7 sts, rep from * around - 108 st
  • Row 10: dc 54 in BLO, break yarn -54 st
  • Row 11:  join yarn and start of last row, dc in each dc across -54 st
  • break yarn and weave in ends

Assembly:

With your accent color (I used hot pink) join yarn and sc around the ridge created by the BLO round on side one of your suitcase. Finish off and weave in ends.

On second side join accent yarn and sc around  BLO row, place side one on side two and join the rest of the way around with sc. Break yarn and weave in ends.
Your bag will look like a bag now.

With desired color work strap. I started mine right under the open portion. Work 6 dc wide, crochet till it is about 4-5 inches shorter than the length you want it to be (remember crochet stretches with wear). Sew securely to opposite side tie well, and weave in ends. Now your bag is together you can sew on your star. This pattern was the one I used.

Sew in zipper. I used the only zipper I had that was long enough, it was red but it didn't really matter. You can leave your bag like this but it is rather squishy so if you would like it to stand out more you can cut strips of plastic canvas to sew in to stiffen the edges then line with fabric to keep in place.
