These instructions is for your cup (triangle, upper side), to adjust this side to your cup size, repeat row 6 and 7 once more or according to your desired size. I used a bigger size for loose fit.

hide the tails along the way, repeat row 6 by joining all 4 cups together, sl st in 1st dc to join. (Time stamp in the video 9:00).
