DIY Knitted Lamp

Hace tiempo por el blog de Vero Mariani, llegué a estas lamparas. Me encantó la idea que tenga el cable de color! y me quedé pensando en como podía hacer para hacer una parecida... En eso me acordé que de chica tenía un tricotin en el que tejía cordones de colores sin mucho uso...

Sometime ago I remeber seeing in Vero Mariani Blog, this lamps. I love the color cable! and I start thinking how I can do a similar one... Then I remember that when I was little I used to have a tricotin where I french knitted

DIY Knitted Lamp

Los materiales que use fueron: el cable y el portalámpara, un destornillador para poner el portalampara, lana, el tricotín y un crochet chiquito.

The things I used were: cable, a lampholder, a small screwdriver for the lampholder, the tricotin, wool and a small crochet

Siempre use el tricotín ya sea con lana sola, o hilo para hacer pulseras; pero pensando en esto se me ocurrió combinarlo con el cable... y efectivamente funcionó!

I always use the tricotin just with wool but this time thinking on the lamp I decided to mix both! and luckily it works perfect!

Pasé el cable por el medio y tejí alrededor normalmente como siempre, y de a poco iba saliendo el cable tejido :) muchó mas gordito y compacto por la lana que usé!

I pass the cable trough the middle and start knitting like usual, and slowly the cable come trough beatufly knitted :) much stronger because of the wool!

Después cuando ya quise terminar, lo fuí cerrando (que es igual que cuando se teje pero dejas de pasar la lana, entonces te van quedando menos)

When I wanted to finish, I start closing it (is the same that when you knitt but without passing more wool)

Cerramos y pasamos el tricotín hasta el final para sacarlo del cable

Once closed it, we pass the tricotin trought the cable to take it out.

Así quedaría la punta donde empezamos que es donde vamos a poner el portalámpara normalmente

That is where we started, here you put the lampholder

  1. Friend of mine made similar lamps with automatic knitting machine. She said she will never do it again :)

    1. Haha, was it to hard? it only took me one hour to do all the knitting... when you understand how it is, you do it faster..

    2. I believe the problem was with the quantity - she made like 8 lamps for her workshop and together could be like 20m of these wires (if not more). So - quite a lot of knitting, don't you think so? :)

  2. I love this! I have a tricotin that my grandma gave me when I was little. It is a mushroom shape and I always love it but never knew what to do with the rope when I was done. This is perfect!

  3. que bueno queda!! Divino! nunca usé el tricotín pero nunca es tarde... y menos con un resultado así!

  4. great tutorial. i was looking to make something like this myself, so it is great to have the instructions at hand here. great job

  5. It can at all times be stimulating to learn content material from other writers and practice just a little one thing from their store. I'd want to make use of some with the content material on my blog whether or not you don't mind. Naturally I'll give you a link on your internet blog.
