I was inspired by an article in the Ideas Magazine last month which showed you how to knit a lampshade. Unfortunately I have not yet mastered the art of knitting (it’s on this holiday’s agenda), so asked my mom if she would be keen to try it out. It’s a super easy pattern, which we tweaked a bit to suit the lampshade we had.
How they suggest you do it is as follows:
- Use a lampshade with a diameter of 25cm
- With 5.5mm knitting needles, knit 100 stitches, for approximately 50 rows
Ours isn’t finished yet, as you can see by the picture…but stay tuned because in just a few days hopefully we would have attached it to the lampshade (well, first taken off the old fabric) and have it ready for action!
