I admit it. I almost tossed this thing out the window. It was one of those craft projects where you have this whole fantasy of what would look good and how easy it would be to make. The kind where your loved ones give you blank looks as you show them all the raw materials. I would swatch something up and put it up to the lampshade and think—this just isn’t right. And I would have to start all over again. You’d never know by looking at it, it seems so casual. That is its genius.
A lampshade (I used a bell-shaped linen lampshade, 10" at top diameter, 14" at bottom diameter, 10 1/2" high)
1 pair size 15 (10 mm) knitting needles
A pretty pin or brooch (even the kind of safety pin you use for a tartan skirt would look nice, very ’80s)
Gauge: 10 stitches x 15 1/2 rows = 4"
36 ≥ yarn and string
