Start with ch 7  Make the cup.

Round 1: sc in the second Ch from hook. sc in each Ch across. In the last chain you will make (2sc, ch2, 2sc) all in the same chain. Now we are on the back side of the chain you will make 1sc in each ch down the row.  Ch1, turn your work.

Round 2: sc in each stitch across from the previous round until you get to the ch2 space in the previous round. In that ch2 space make (2sc,ch2,2sc) all in the same chain space, and then make sc in each of the next stitch from previous round. Ch1, turn your work.

Round 3-9 : repeat round 2 until you reach your 7 inches width and 8 inches height .

Now it’s time to add some fancy lace to the cup, by ch2, sk1, (2dc,ch2,2dc in the next st), then *sk3,(2dc,ch2,2dc)*

Repeat the same process for the second piece of the cup.

Now we are going to connect two cup together.

Start at the bottom corner of the cup, then join new yarn at the end of the cup then sc in each stitch along the cup base until you get to the end of first cup then join first cup and second cup together by sc then continue to sc in each stitch along the second cup until  you are the edge of second cup and start to make a chain.

The number of chain that you will make it will wrap around your under bust.

For small size make 42 chain.

For medium size make 52 chain.

For large size make 62 chain.

For XL size make 72 chain.

Row6. now you will make   * 2dc,ch2,2dc in the chain space of the previous row* repeat * to * across until end of the round.
