TO MAKE UP Cover the lamp­shade in cling film or cel­lo­phane to pro­tect it. Stretch the knit­ted lace cover to fit over the shade and This lamp is knit­ted in the round on a cir­cu­lar nee­dle which is a great fun tech­nique to try Lace the lamp­shade by con­nect­ing the edges on the in­side, keep­ing tension even run thread from the top to the bot­tom all round, on the in­side of the shade, to tension the lace cover. Spray the cover with wa­ter and leave to dry nat­u­rally. Re­move the lace cover. Re­move cling film or cel­lo­phane. Re­place the lace cover on the shade and lace up on the in­side us­ing a fine thread, pulling it tight enough to al­low the cover to fit neatly.
