I'm on a 'modern crochet' roll.... I am simply loving this crochet book by Molla Mills you can read more about it in my recent post here. I believe there is a second edition in the works, worth looking out for?
Having already crocheted a couple of baskets, I moved on to a lampshade. I posted about it first on my instagram feed... with a little glimpse of the shade I was working on.
An tatty old lampshade (total cost 50p from a boot fair) was stripped of its stained cover, given a wipe down and revamped with crochet.
I used a size 9 mm hook and 3/4 of a multi coloured Boodles roll of yarn. I made up my own stitch, I crocheted 2 double crochet together. (2dctog) this made for a wider stitch with added depth.
I took some obligatory work in progress photos, I love looking back on them and seeing my progress over the last couple of days.
Finally a finished lampshade, by daylight and in the evening...
Already flicking through the pages for my next project....!
Anyone else caught the modern crochet bug?
