I liked this white cable-knit style for my shade because the cable pattern is running horizontally instead of the typical vertical direction.
I cut the sweater apart at the side seams and pinned it to the shade. Working with any kind of knit is easier than a woven fabric because you can stretch and manipulate it to fit any shape shade. Pin it at the bottom, top and then cut off the excess sweater where the two pieces meet.
Either sew the sweater to the shade, or if sewing is not your thing, glue it in place with a hot glue gun.
That’s it! Easy-peasy! You could add trim or bead embellishments if you want to add color and make it more decorative. But, I love the simple ski chalet look. It almost makes me want to go out on the slopes, but instead I’ll wait by the fire with a hot toddy.
