Some time ago, I crocheted a lampshade. This can be read back here. I was not satisfied:
I actually thought he was too ‘old fashioned’ and the granny print looking to bussy in my livingroom. I also came to the conclusion that I had better not cut off the original cap’. “the crochet work would have been nicer and strained by the cap. All in all, I thought, ‘I just do it again! “
What do you think? I think it is so much nicer! Quiet, nice and cool at the same time …! I’m happy now! Because he was really compact, I was afraid that no ray of light would come through. I did not let this feeling lead me and am still going through hooks. And fortunately the light still shines beautifully through!!
So I look with a big smile at this lampshade!!
Do you want to make it. I’ll tell you how I proceeded:
- Lampshade with a diameter of 34 cm above and 40 cm under (or the size you want)
- 4 balls wool (100g= 163m 74% acrylic 20% wool 6%viscosa)
- Crochet hook 5
I used the ‘Honeycomb stitch’, this is described in the “Hook Bible”: number 79.
Step 1: Crochet a chain: the number of which is necessary in order subsequently to be able to hook around the lampshade. Because everyone hooked in a different way. The one tighter than the other. So the chain could be for you just a little more or less.
Note the stabbing ratio!
I started to hooked a chain off 126 (+ 1 = 127).
Step 2: Work back and forth when you hook the round with the double crochet(clusters). Quit him nicely with a slipstich (sl/st.)in the first stich from the row.
When you hook the second round with the single crochet, then you crochet around; this will close your row, which also closes the seam neat.I crocheted total 17 rows with the ‘Cluster’.
I make a stabbing in subsequent rounds:
Row 1t/m 6: 42 ‘globule’.
Row7 t/m 9:43 ‘globule’.
Row 10 t/m 11 44 ‘globule’.
Row 12 t/m toer 13 45 ‘globule’.
Row 14 t/m toer 16 46 ‘globule’.
Row 17 47 ‘globule’.
Step 3: After each round, I applied the ‘lampshade jacket’ just around the hood. Because of this I was able to make timely a stabbing. Additionally, you can keep an eye “if you’re already there’ 🙂
I hope you understand how to make this lamphade and maybe you also make a crocheted lampshade!
