Zoku Recipes

  • Chocolate Shell Sauce Recipe
    This recipe uses butter instead of coconut oil. Makes a nice, thick coating that freezes hard.
  • Super Simple Nutella Ice Cream
    This one did NOT work. Was too thick and would not stick to the zoku sticks. Had to eat it out of the pop maker with a spoon (couldn't let it go to waste)!
  • SunRype Juice
    100% juice juiceboxes make great, easy pops. Use two different flavours to make stripes.
  • Lucerne 2% Chocolate Milk
    Easiest pops ever and tastes just like a fudgsicle! Even better if dipped in homemade magic shell sauce.
  • Lemon Buttermilk Sorbet
    This takes a bit of prep but is amazing in the Zoku. The lemon and buttermilk combo is delicious. Can add thin slices of lemon to the side. Recipe makes enough for about 12 pops total.
  • Chocolate Pudding Pops
    This recipe makes a thin chocolate pudding that works great in the Zoku. Be careful pouring it in as it will fill one side before the other. Makes enough for 12 pops (done over 2 nights). The pudding is very sweet but once frozen tastes just right.

Hi Jennifer - sorry for the delay. I was on vacation. Does this direct link help at all?

Another place you can try is the Ravelry page:

Thank you so much for this pattern, I have knit many for friends and everyone treasures it. One of my friends in a food store had a stranger (female) actually grab her scarf when she had it on, then get paper and pen and started writing the pattern out. They both love the pattern, you certainly outdid yourself.
I didn't think I could do lace but after trying and trying I suceeded with this one. I am thrilled with myself too.

I cant download the pdf any idea why?

This is lovely, I'll try it asap! Thanks a lot for sharing....

Thank you! I'm on it!

I love how different this scarf is! My granddaughter can't wait till I finish it for her in a verigated lavender and pink color.

Perhaps someone who speaks Spanish can help us out here, but in the meantime from searching the internet I think...
YO = echar hebra or echar (el hilo)
K1 = knit 1 = punto del derecho
This site has some translations that might help: http://mybev.perso.neuf.fr/dico.html

Muy bonita gracias por compartir pero no entiendo que significa YO K1 por favor es derecho, reves. lazada.. Tu amiga Tota.

Hi! I'm posting a link to this pattern on my blog: http:stocktoncrafts.typepad.com

I am so glad you liked it!

Hello I just finished this scarf and I must say its beautiful. I made it for my sister in law who taught me how to knit. Once I got going it was very easy to do I know I'll have to make a few more my mom me and my sister. Thanks for a great easy pattern I truly enjoyed making it.

Happy knitting

Hi I'm working on this lovely scarf pattern I have to tell you its knitting up beautifully. I thank you so much for the pattern I'm hoping to have the scarf done for my sister in law she taught me how to knit yrs ago I have only a couple wks tho LOL but it truly does work up easy once you get going. I may have to start another one for my mom I love this pattern thanks again and have a nice day.

In a nice big chunky yarn, I think this would look fabulous on 16 sts. I say, try it!

How successful do you think this scarf would be at 16 stitches?

I just started and UN-started this pattern about 4 times... and the answer above cleared up my confusion!

"Here's a detailed explanation of Row 5 that might be helpful:

There should be 26 stitches on your needle as you start Row 5.

Here’s how they are used (K is a knit stitch O is a yarnover):
K1{OKOOKOOOKOOKO}K6{OKOOKOOOKOOKO}K6{OKOOKOOOKOOKO}K1

Note that you begin and end this row with a Knit 1, not a Knit 6. If you count the Ks, there are just 26 of them. You have done three YO repeats, buffered with a K1 on each end instead of the K6 you did in Row 2. You should have 44 stitches on your needle at the end of this row."

I was doing the directions LITERALLY not adding the 6 in the middle... THATS why it wasnt looking right! I cant wait to finish it!! It's going to be beautiful!!!!!!! Great pattern!!

Great pattern thanks.

Hi Christine
Yes I agree...this is an awesome pattern..
One hint is do NOT get all frustrated on the YO rows...this gets kinda loopy for everyone...just keep on knitting and it all works out BEAUTIFULLY.
I did mine in 56 CO to make a lovely shawl/ throw for the cool Arizona nights.

The pattern is beautiful,ilove it and will make one for me!
Thanks for sharing.

You do have to physically push them off your needle with your finger. Do they not want to open up even then?

esta arriba en espanol! :) espero hayan checado de nuevo. :) beautiful scarf. if only i knew why my yarn overs won't drop! :/

Thank you for sharing your pattern with us. I really enjoyed knitting it up and can't wait to knit it up again for my kiddos!

Sorry Dorothy, I didn't see your comments until today. It sounds like you figured it out -- sometimes you just have to do it and it all comes clear!

Here's a detailed explanation of Row 5 that might be helpful:

okay- so is this how it's done - on row 5 you do the repeat twice as in row 1 but then also you "YO, K1, YO twice, K1, YO 3 times, K1, YO twice, K1, YO and then K1..? Geesh - took me long enough to figure it out...lol

okay - I'm confused - if the repeat in this scarf is a 10 stitch repeat and you've cast on 26 stitches - how can you do it 3 times?
Sorry if it's obvious to others ...lol...it isn't to me..lol

I have made this in Paton's stretch sock yarn. It did it in a cravat length; very pretty. I also made it in 4-ply wool. Totally different but just as nice. Good instructions. Many thanks.
