It’s time to give my old lampshade a new look!!! I crochet a lampshade cover for the SKIMRA I bought at Ikea many years ago. See how it brightens up a room after putting on a new dress? This new lamp has since “migrated” to my daughter’s room and never look back any more!

Don’t worry if you don’t have the exact material ie. knitted jersey strips from my stashed and the lampshade I bought from Ikea, follow the tutorial further down to adapt this method to suit your old lampshade and the yarn of your choice. Well, all you need to do are taking some measurements and do some simple maths to create your own lampshade pattern. It’s totally flexible!!!

Get my typical crochet pattern after this jump and jump further down for the tutorial.
