Yesterday I shared my YoolaDesign crochet wire lampshade. It reminded me that back in 2012 I did a roundup of crochet lamps and I’ve been meaning to do a fresh roundup all year long. Well, that roundup is here. You’ll find crochet lamp patterns, tutorials and inspirational photos here to inspire your own crafting!
