Adjust the Height:

To make is shorter or taller, reduce or increase foundation stitches in increments of 2, i.e., fsc 8, 6, 4, etc.

Row 1: Fsc 10.

Row 2: Ch 2, turn, *dc 1 in next st, sc 1 in next st, repeat from * across – 10 sts.

Adjusting the Length:

Crocheting 27 rows = around 12.5” (31 cm) – you can decrease the number of rows to accommodate the circumference of your water bottle, coffee mug, etc.

Rows 3 – 27: Repeat Row 2, tie off.
The following row will be different if you decided to modify the pattern. The pattern works in multiples of 2, and Row 28 is the thinner part of project where you will create the button hole at the top. You can work this using the up and down stitch by alternating a dc and a sc.
