    The pattern is super simple. I’ll try to explain it: mainly is 1 double crochet (dc), chain 3, 1 dc connected by chain stitches increasing one st every round until the middle and then decreasing one st. I worked it in the round until the deceasing started and then back and forwards so I could put the lamp inside (@lavendel). With the lamp inside I sewed the top part. You can totally do it with knitting, of course!

    I’d love to know the stitch pattern you used for this. It’s awesome. I’m an ultra beginner with crochet but an intermediate knitter. Guess I could do something similar knitting.

  7. Beautiful fixture…I really like the concept. I think it might look even better if it hung a little lower from the ceiling more like a pendant fixture:)
