Crocheting Basics

Lovely Lampshade

This lampshade cozy is perfect for a kids night-light or to diffuse light on a guest room bedside table. Start by single crocheting a rectangle the height and circumference of your existing lampshade. You can finish the edges with a slip stitch, then hand-sew both ends together in the back.

Sweet-and-Sour Slices
