Right cup: Crochet 4 ch with crochet hook size 4 mm and form a ring with a sl st. Continue as follows:
Round 1: 5 dc in ring
Round 2: 2 tr in each dc = 10 tr
Round 3: 2 tr in each tr = 20 tr
Round 4: *4 ch, skip 1 tr, 1 dc in next tr*, repeat from *-*, = 10 ch-loops
Round 5: 4 tr in each ch-loop = 40 tr
Round 6: *3 ch, skip 1 tr, 1 dc in next tr*, repeat from *-*, = 20 ch-loops
Round 7: 3 tr in each of the first 2 ch-loops, *2 tr in next ch-loop, 3 tr in each of the next 2 ch-loops*, repeat from *-*, = 54 tr
Round 8: *3 ch, skip 2 tr, 1 dc in next tr, 3 ch, skip 2 tr, 1 dc in next tr, 3 ch, skip 1 tr, 1 dc in next tr*, repeat from *-* and finish round with 3 ch, skip 2 tr, 1 dc in next tr, 3 ch, skip 2 tr and 1 sl st = 20 ch-loops
Round 9: 3 tr in first ch-loop, *4 tr in next ch-loop, 3 tr in next ch-loop*, repeat from *-* and finish round with 4 tr in the last ch-loop = 70 tr
Round 10: *3 ch, skip 2 tr, 1 dc in next tr, 3 ch, skip 3 tr, 1 dc in next tr*, repeat from *-* = 20 ch-loops
