Pattern Description:

A cozy way to change the look of a lampshade! Simplicity lampshade cozies are super simple to knit, knit up quickly, and can change the look of your room. The simple design is perfect for any room, from a masculine study or office to a casual living room to a girl's bedroom. They look wonderful on a flea market chandelier! Use the suggested yarn or a handspun super bulky yarn for a very special look. Cozies are knit in the round so there are no seams, which means your lampshade looks perfect from any side.

Lampshade cozies are great for flea market finds! I purchased the chandelier pictured at the Nashville Flea Market and the lampshade cozies I made for it are a great shabby chic look!!

Your purchase includes pattern support - just send me an email (included in pattern) and I'll be happy to answer your questions or help you if you get stuck!!
