Instructions for Medallion:
Note: Each round is crocheted in a different color. When working with multi-colored projects, it is helpful to weave the ends as you go.
Ch 4, join with a sl st in the furthest ch from hook to form ring.
Round 1: ch 3, then work 2 dc, then a sl st into the center of the ring. Work *(3 dc, sl st) five times for a total of 6 petals. Join with a sl st to close round.
Round 2: Tie on new color onto the back loops at the top of one of the petals. Insert your hook (same place at the top of petal) as if to work a back post stitch and ch 3 (working it this way will make the chain look more consistent with the other stitches). Ch 1, then in the next space (in between petals) work a tr into the center of the ring. Ch 1, then work a bpdc into the center most dc of the next petal. Continue in this manner around the circle, working a tr, ch 1 into the center of the ring (in between petals), then a bpdc, ch 1 in center dc of each petal. Join to close round with a sl st.
Round 3: Tie on a new color into any space and ch 3. In the same space, work a dc, ch 1. Work 2 dc, ch 1 in each space around. Join to close round with a sl st.
Round 4: Tie on a new color into any space and ch 3. In the same space, work 2 dc, ch 1. Work 3 dc, ch 1 in each space around. Join to close round with a sl st.
Round 5: Tie on a new color into any space and ch 1. Work a sc in each space around. Join to close round with a sl st.
Instructions for Band:
(Note: Band is a total of 10 rounds. I used 5 colors, 2 rounds of each color.)
Ch 28, then join with a sl st in the furthest ch from the hook. (note: there is no special stitch count so any of number of chains will work to fit your own cup, I made mine with 28 chains to fit my cup)
Round 1: Ch 2 and work a hdc in each ch. Join to close round with a sl st.
Round 2: Ch 2 and work a hdc in each st. Join to close round with a sl st.
Repeat round 2 eight more times, then fasten off.
Finishing & Assembly: Sew medallion to band with a matching piece of yarn. I sewed mine over the seam to cover it up. Weave in any ends and your finished!
