Big fat lampshade

Yarn
Pickles Fat & Happy, 500 g. (1 skein)

Crochet hook

Shade
JÄRA in 35 cm from IKEA.

If you have a different lampshade than we used, follow the instructions in parenthesis.

Pattern
Round 1: Chain 34 (chain X number of stitches to go around the top of your lamp minus 4 stitches.) Join with a slip stitch in the first stitch to make a ring.

Round 2: Chain 1. Single crochet in each stitch. Slip stitch in the chain stitch.

Round 3: Chain 1. Single crochet in each stitch. Increase 4 stitches by single crocheting two times into the same stitch four places evenly distributed. Slip stitch in the chain stitch.

Round 4: Chain 3. Double crochet in the back loop of each stitch to make a folding edge. Slip stitch in the third chain stitch.

Round 5: Chain 3. Increase one stitch at the beginning of the round by making a double crochet into the same stitch as the chain comes from. (picture below)

Double crochet in each stitch around the ring as usual. Increase one stitch at the end of the round by making a double crochet into the same stitch as the chain comes from. (picture below)

Repeat round 5 until your shade until your work is long enough to cover the shade. Then fold in by crocheting like this:

Folding round: Chain 1. Single crochet in the back loop of each stitch. Slip stitch in the chain stitch.

Finishing round: Chain 1. Single crochet in each stitch. At the same time decrease 4 stitches evenly around the ring by picking up the loop in two stitches before pulling the yarn through. (Picture below)

Lampshade

Material: 1 skein of Fiesta og 5 mm needle.

How to do it:

Chain enough stitches to go around the top of your lampshade. Sl st tog.

Round 1: Chain 1 and sc 1 in every stitch around. Sl st tog.

Round 2: Sc 1 in the back loop of every sc. That will give you a nice top edge like this:

You dont need to actually crochet ON the lamp, just try it on once i a while to make sure it fits. Crochet all the way down in rounds and increase when needed. We did the increases on the back of the lamp shade. Finish with a round in the back loops again. Weave in ends. Look, you have a super nice crocheted lamp shade!
