Chequered Lampshade

Issue: 167


Chequered Lampshade by Rose Svane

Find the pattern in 167 of Inside Crochet magazine.

The free crocheting technique combined with tapestry crochet creates a colourful design that can be made to fit any lamp in your home.


* Aran to chunky weight yarn in two colours, 200g

* 4mm hook


You can use any yarn you fancy, as long as it’s quite thick – aim for an aran or chunky weight yarn (about 5 to 7mm thick). This sample used a wool mixture with a recommended hook size of 3.5mm with two strands held together to get the right thickness.
