Pattern Description:

A lampshade cozy is a wonderfully unique way to dress up a lampshade and change the look of your room. Make this cozy using a soft shade for a bedroom, a bright fun color for a dorm room or a sophisticated color for an office. Cozies make great housewarming gifts and the lamp shown is available at any Target store at an affordable price. The beautiful lace pattern is easy enough for a beginning knitter to follow, uses one ball of yarn and knits up in just a few hours. The cozy is knit in the round so there are no seams to sew and your lamp looks great from any angle. You may want to make one for every room!
