This pattern is for a textured felt lamp shade in multiple sizes and matching pillows in two sizes. The lamp shade can be sewn over a preexisting shade or a handmade frame. DIY instructions for a metal lamp shade frame are included in this pattern as well as a lesson in lamp anatomy and safety. These housewares are a great project for all seasons and add some texture and softness to your decor. If you’ve never wanted to hug a lamp shade or rub a pillow, you might want to after making these.

Pillow Sizes: 10” x 16” and 16” x 16”.

Lampshade fits a 6”-18” diameter drum shade with a height of 11”. The height is also adjustable.

Images of the non knitting sections of the pattern are posted here so that everyone can get a good idea of the skills and materials needed to build the lampshade. These instructions are also included in the pattern PDF. Keep in mind that none of these skills are needed to make pillows or to cover a store bought shade. Please take a look to avoid any unwanted surprises.

You might want to have some experience with short rows before starting this project. This pattern is knit in the round and makes a very nice bag if housewares aren’t your thing.
