Add a turn-back for closing up the lampshade and trace a third curve starting at O, but cutting the straight line AC 1cm (3⁄8in) above point C (see the yellow areas on the pattern).

Figure 2 AB = radius, large ring of the shade AC = height of the shade CD = radius, small ring of the shade Trace a straight line passing through B and D, to find O, the centre of the curves passing through A and C. Calculate the angle for the opening: {(AB − CD) × 360}/AC. Transfer this angle onto O. You will need a ring 8cm (31⁄4in) in diameter with a 5cm (2in) smaller ring for the top, at the point where the electrical fixtures will be integrated, and a 15cm (6in) ring for the bottom.
