I have wanted to make a craft story about knitting for the longest time. But there was always one big problem... I can't knit! So one day I was at H&M and they had all these amazing wool sweaters on sale, so I bought a big bag full. With the help of my trusty hot glue gun I made a whole story about knitting crafts for all of us who can't knit!

  1. To make this lampshade, cut a large sweater in half along the side seams.
  2. Take off the sleeves, you can use those for something else.
  3. Pull the material around the shade so the fabric meets in the back.
  4. Cut to fit and hot glue in place.
  5. Trim the edges and fold it over the shades edges and secure with a hot glue gun.
  6. You now have a very unique and stylish shade.
