In this tutorial I am using acrylic yarn but you can use any type of yarn you like.

Stitches used : ch, sl st, sc, dc.
Hook size 3.0 mm/any hook size to obtain gauge.
Make sure to check your gauge first 7 dc= 1.0 x 0.5 inch.

Cup size is approximately 5.5x5.5 inch. 

~Please refer to the video tutorial if you can’t understand any part of this pattern~


(Make two cups)

Begin with a slip knot and chain 17.

Row 1: 
Dc in 4th ch from hook, dc across, (3dc, ch 2, 3dc) in last ch, dc on the other side across. Turn.

Row 2:
 *Ch 3, dc across, (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in 2-ch-space, dc across*. Turn.

Row 3-8: 
Repeat * to * 6 more times. Turn. (Total 8 rows). 
Add more rows for bigger size.

Continue to make the edging.
 #Skip 1 st, (sc, ch 2, sc) in nxt st#. Repeat # to # across until you reach the 2-ch-space.

Continue to make the string.
Skip 1 st, sl st in 2-ch-sp, ch 100, sc in 2nd ch from hook and across. Sl st in 2-ch-sp.

Continue to make the edging.
Repeat # to # across. Skip nxt st.  

Continue at the bottom part of the cup.
2 sc in each dc spaces across. Ch 1, fasten off. Weave in ends.

Repeat the whole process and make another one.

Now continue to make the drawstring.
Ch 250, sc in 2nd ch from hook and across. Ch1, fasten off. Weave in ends.

Finally insert the string in dc spaces at the bottom part of both cups.

And we’re done.
