Crocheted Tea Cup


 After making a few tea cups, I finally did post a pattern for this tea cup. I have used worsted weight yarn and a F hook in the past to make these cups. The one pictured I used scrap baby yarn and a size 8 steel hook. So here is the pattern:

ch 2
Row 2: 2 sc in each sc
Row 3: *2 sc in next sc, sc in next sc*, around
Row 4:*2 sc in the next sc, sc in the next 2 sc* around

Row 5: ch2, 4dc is same stitch,skip 1, *sc in next st, sk 1, 5 dc in next stitch, sk 1,* around end with sc in the next stitch, join with ch 2 (6 ch 5 shells)


Row 6:slip to 2nd dc,ch3, 4 dc in same stitch, *tr in sc, 5 dc in 3rd dc of shell.* repeat around end with tr in last sc, join

Row 7:slip to 2nd dc,ch3, 6 dc in same stitch,*sc in tr, 7 dc in middle of shell* repeat end with sc in tr. Join

Row 8:slip to 3nd dc,ch3, 6 dc in same stitch,*tr in sc, 7 dc in middle of shell* repeat end with tr in sc. join, ch 1, Turn

Forming the handle:
sc in tr, ch 10, sc around tr in row 6,ch 1, 15 sc in ch 10 loop, ch 3, sl in same sc, sc in loop, ch 3, sl in same sc, sc in loop, ch 3 sl in same sc. (14 sc and 3 sc with a picot)

Final picot row along top of cup.

*sc in each dc to 4th dc of 7dc shell, sc, ch 3, slip in same sc in 4th dc of 7 dc shell, sc to tr, sc, ch3, slip in same sc* repeat around, slip with sc at beginning of round. finish off.
