  • Step 1

    ABBREVIATIONS
    Fhdc: foundation half double crochet
    ch(s): chain(s)
    hdc: half double crochet
    sl st(s): slip stitch(es)
    blo: back loop only
    flo: front loop only

    Gauge: 6 st and 6 rows is 2 inches in hdc in the third loop only

  • Step 2

    R1: Fhdc 25 (or ch 26, hdc in the second ch from hook and in all ch(s)), sl st to join, ch 1
    R2-4: hdc in the third loop only in each st around, sl st to join, ch 1

    In the last round, do not cut yarn and ch 4 instead of 1. You will continue with the ribbing.

  • Step 3

    RIBBING
    R1: ch 4, sl st in second ch from hook in the back bumps in the next 3 ch(s), sl st in the next hdc of round 4, turn, do not ch 1.

    R2: ignore the first stl st (the one on the hdc of the previous round), sl st in blo in the next 3 sl st(s), ch 1, turn

    R3: sl st in flo in the next 3 sl st(s), sl st in the next hdc of round 4, turn, do not ch 1.

    R4-52: repeat rows 2 and 3 until you make a full round. In the last row join with sl st(s) with the first row as you go down or finish and sew. Cut yarn.

    An easy way to remember the ribbing is that every time you are going up you will sl st in the blo. And every time you are going down, you will sl st in the flo.

    Join the yarn again on the bottom side of your cup cozy and repeat the ribbing.
