Craft lessons: Crochet Nesting Cups Tutorial

Crochet  |  August 30th 2011  |  0 Comment

 

The pattern is basically the same for each cup. All that is different is the number of starting stitches and rows for each size. To add pattern I made stripes by changing colors after a few rows.

Here is what you need to get started

Hook size

I used US H 8 / 5.00mm

Yarn

medium 4 weight

in three different colors

Here is a key for all the abbreviations I use:

dc = double crochet

ch = chain

sl st = slip stitch

beg = beginning

rnd = round

Ch 4, join with a sl st to form a ring.

Rnd 1) ch 2 for first dc, *7dc in ring, sl st to top of beg ch.

*8 stitches, counting the ch2 = Sm

10 stitches, counting the ch2 = Med

12 stitches, counting the ch2 = Lg

Rnd 2) ch 2 for first dc, 2 dc in each dc, sl st to top of beg ch.

Rnd 3) ch 2 for first dc, 2 dc, in each dc, sl st to top of beg ch.

Rnd 4) ch 2 for first dc, 1 dc into back loop of each dc, sl st to top of beg ch. See photo below.

(Stitching into the back loop creates a nice edge to the base of the cups.)

 


Rnd 5) ch 2 for first dc, 1 dc in each dc, sl st to top of beg ch.
For all consecutive rounds, repeat Rnd 5 and fasted off.

Sm) 5 pink rnds ,1 orange, 1 beige. 7 rounds total.

Med) 6 pink rnds, 2 orange, 1 beige. 9 rounds total.

 

Lg) 7 pink rnds, 3 orange, 2 beige. 12 rounds total.

So that’s it! :) Super easy right?! Now you can go fill yours up with stuff!

 

Mine are on my sewing table. The large one holds my threads, the medium one holds my buttons, and the small one holds my measuring tapes and a few random strands of embroidery floss.
