Border: Round 1: Chain 1 and turn. Work along the top of the cup, placing 1-SC in the end of each row of the cup.

Round 2: Chain 1 and turn. SC in every stitch across.

Repeat Round 2 for a total of 8 Rows. This is the height of the cup so if you want more coverage you can add more rows. 

Now you will work the border along the bottom of the cup. At the end of your last row: Turn your work and continue to SC evenly along the bottom of the cup; along the bottom and back up to the opposite corner of the border you just made.

Round 1: Chain 1 and turn. SC in every stitch along the bottom border.

Round 2: Chain 1 and turn. SC in every stitch along the bottom border. Tie Off. You’re cup is done! Use these cups to create your own bralette, top, or bikini.
