Flip DC’s downward so it becomes a rim for the mug.

Do not fasten off, now let’s make the handle:

Chain 14, join to bottom edge of mug with a slip stitch, turn and SC back up the chain and join to the DC rim, do not fasten off.

Slip stitch the bottom of the DC rim to the mug. You should be working your slip stitches through the edge of the DC stitches and into the mug between rounds 16 and 17.
