Crochet info: Turn the piece with 3 ch.

Increasing tips: Inc 2 dc by crocheting 3 dc in dc by marking thread.

Stripes: Each stripe = 1 row of dc. Crochet stripes in the following order: pistachio, rose, heather, orange, olive.

Crochet each cup separately from bottom up.
Ch 46-55-64 using hook size 3 mm / C and olive.
1st row: 1 sc in the 3rd ch from the hook, *skip ch 1, 1 sc in each of the next 2 ch*, repeat from *-* and finish with 1 sc in the last ch = 31-37-43 sc (the first sc = 2 ch). Turn the piece.
2nd row: ch 5, skip 1 sc, 1 dc in next st, *1 ch, skip 1 sc, 1 dc in next st*, repeat from *-* = 15-18-21 ch spaces. Turn the piece.
3rd row: Crochet 1 dc in each st from previous row – see Crochet info = 31-37-43 dc. Insert a marker in the middle dc and let the marker follow the piece as you progress.
Next rows: Change to pistachio and crochet stripes as described above. Crochet 1 dc in each dc, at the same time inc 2 dc in the middle of the piece – see Increasing tips above – on the next 4-4-5 rows = 39-45-53 dc.
Now start decreasing in the middle of the piece.
On first row skip 1 dc by marker, on the following rows skip 2 dc and continue until there are 4 dc left - the piece now measures approx 20-23-27 cm / 8"-9"-10½".
