Lion Brand® Glitterspun® (old) - Moonlight Mohair
Pattern #: 20061117-lampshade
You can be loose with following this pattern. The cover does not need to fit your shade precisely in order to look good. In fact it looks better if it doesn't. In other words -- you can’t go wrong.

Lampshade Cover

Lion Brand® Glitterspun® (old) - Moonlight Mohair

GAUGE:

10 stitches x 15½ rows = 4 inches [1- cm] When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

NOTES:

Measure the circumference of your shade both top and bottom. Measure the height. The shade shown is 10½" high with 31½" top circumference and 44" bottom circumference. Adjust this pattern as needed to fit.

Knit the piece about an inch higher than the actual lampshade measurements. Knit a nice loose stockinette stitch so it will have a lot of stretch. Begin your pattern with the largest circumference. The pattern for the item shown piece is as follows, but you can place stripes as you see fit. It is great to have them be thin, fuzzy and widely spaced. Hold your work up to the shade as you knit to make sure things are right.

Adapt as your lampshade requires:


LAMP SHADE
With A, c
ast on 120 stitches.
Rows 1-3: Work in stockinette stitch (knit one row, purl one row) starting with a purl row for 3 rows.
Row 4: Decrease 6 stitches evenly across row. Work for 5 more rows.
Rows 10-11: Change to B and continue in stockinette stitch.
Row 12: Change to A, continue in stockinette stitch but decrease 6 stitches evenly across row. Work for another 7 rows.
Row 20: Decrease 6 stitches evenly across row.
Work for another 7 rows.
Row 28: Decrease 6 stitches evenly across row.
Work for another 3 rows.
Rows 32-33: Change to B and continue in stockinette stitch.
Row 34: Change to A, continue in stockinette stitch. Work for 1 more row.
Row 36: Decrease 6 stitches evenly across row.
Work for 7 rows.
Rows 44-45: Change to B and continue in stockinette. In row 44 only, decrease 6 stitches evenly across row. Work for 6 more rows.
Row 52: Decrease 6 stitches evenly across row.
Row 53: Purl.
Row 54: Knit, decreasing another 6 stitches (72 stitches across).
Row 55: Bind off.

FINISHING
Using the large-eyed blunt needle, thread a piece of yarn through the top row or two so that it hugs the lampshade tightly. Tie a small bow.

Find a spot towards the bottom of your shade to pin together the rest of your shade. Adjust the knitting as needed.

Lampshade Cover Reviewed by Tricia on 2011-09-10 *
I am sorry, but this is one of the ugliest Lampshade covers I have ever seen - the top looks torn, worn & ugly
