Ice cream bunting pattern

I made this bunting for a recent summer swap, I liked it so much I made it for myself. 
This is my first time writing out a pattern so hopefully It will be right, if you try it and have any problems please let me know. But it's fairly straightforward. Just remember at the end of each row chain 1 and turn. 
Ice cream cone - beige yarn

Foundation chain 10 + 1, turn
Row 1: 1dc in each st (10) 
Row 2: 1dc in each st (10)
Row 3:dc2tog, 1dc in the next 6st, dc2tog (8)
Row 4: 1dc in each st (8)
Row 5:dc2tog, 1dc in the next 4st, dc2tog (6)
Rows 6-13: 1dc in each st (6)
Row 14: dc2tog, 1dc in the next 2st, dc2tog (4)
Row 15-16: 1dc in each st (4)
Row 17: dc2tog, dc2tog (2)
Row 18: dc2tog (1)r
Fasten off, change colour.

Ice cream -join on yellow, pink or mint green yarn

Row 1: 1dc in each of the 10 st on the top of the cone (as seen in the picture)
Row 2: 2dc in first st, 8dc, 2dc in last st (12)
Row 3: dc2tog, 8dc, dc2tog (10)
Row 4: dc2tog, 6dc, dc2tog (8)
Row 5: dc2tog, 4dc, dc2tog (6)
Row 6: dc2tog, 2dc, dc2tog (4)
Fasten off
 Make 2 more. 

Lollipop - in yellow, pink or green yarn.

This starts from the bottom to the top of the lolly
Foundation chain 10 +1 
Rows 1- 14: 1dc in each st.(10)
Row 15: dc2tog, 6dc, dc2tog (8)
Row 16: dc2tog, 4dc, dc2tog (6)
Row 17: dc2tog, 2dc, dc2tog (4)
Fasten off

Lollipop stick 
Join on the beige yarn to the 5th dc along the straight edge.
Row 1-7: dc 2
Row 8: dc2tog
Fasten off. 
Make one more.

Scalloped chain
Foundation chain 200 +1 
5 tr into 3rd chain from hook, miss 2 st then dc into the next st, * miss 2st , 5tr into the next st, miss 2st then dc into the next . Rep from * to end.
Fasten off.

Sew in all ends, space out the lollipops and ice creams as you wish, I left a gap of 5 of the shell shapes. Then sew the ice cream or lollipop into the middle of the shell as shown on the photo. 

I hope it's right I'll only know if someone else has a go. 

Thanks for reading and if you try it let me know how you get on.
