Thank You bcburks@iland.net         

Materials: 1 skein Peaches and Cream Cotton   size "F" crochet hook  

  (Make 2)  chain 15

Row 1:  sc in 2nd chain from hook, and in each chain across, chain 1 turn.

Row 2-6:  sc in each sc across.

Row 7: skip 1st sc, sc in next sc and in each sc to remaining 2 sc, skip next sc, sc in last sc.  Work this Row, decreasing until you have only 1 sc remaining.  Then sc around the outside of the entire cup. Fasten off and work in loose ends. 

Straps

sc from the bottom up the outside of  the cup, then continue on making a 10 inch chain for the strap.  Fasten off.  Do this on both cups.

Make a chain 11 inches long, sc along lower edge of first cup, chain 1 sc across bottom of 2nd cup, make a chain 11 inches long and fasten off. 

Note: I have done many variations on the straps, I have gone back across them with a shell pattern or even sc back across.  There are lots of possibilities.
