Covers fit lamp shades in with the following dimensions:
Height: 17 - 21 cm
Circumference at the bottom: approx. 75 - 107 cm
Circumference at the top: approx. 58 - 86 cm
1 repetition of pattern at the bottom is equivalent to approx. 16.5 cm in breadth. Covers are worked approx. 10% less in circumference on lamp shades so that they fit tightly, therefore they must be worked approx. 10% longer vertically to avoid them being too short when stretched in breadth.

Many knitters are unable to knit from charts, could you please include line-by-line instructions as well as charts?

Dear Kathy, there are only diagrams to this pattern: start to read diagrams from the bottom corner on the right side towards the left on every round (1 square in diagram = 1 stitch x 1 round). You will find the key just above diagrams. Happy knitting!

¿Cómo se coloca la funda, directamente en la estructura o sobre una pantalla? ¿Cosiéndola? Gracias de antemano.
