This giant crocheted lampshade is a real showstopper. Eight frills, edged with popcorn stitches, give an extra dimension. The strong, rigid nature of the MIGHTY yarn lends form and structure to the base, and with over a hundred shades in the Catona range, it’s easy to swap them in and out to match favourite furnishings.
