It does not happen every day to see a DIY creation become a popular design object ...

However, that is what has happened to a DIY project called "Light Carpet", created by the architect and interior designer Johanna Hyrkäs. Her project was then revisited by a student who then republished it on her own blog. 

The designer started out by using some of the basic crochet stitches to incorporate a LED light tube and created a magnificent and luminous light carpet for the living room.

This is the original designer object created by the artist Johanna Hyrkäs.

Carmen, the student who then created her own light carpet, started by creating a circular center with 8 single crochet stitches as the base.

To learn the basic technique and the simple crochet stitches needed to create a circular shape for the base, let us refer you to the video at the bottom of this article.

After making the first eight stitches for the base, Carmen began to incorporate one end of the luminous tube into the crochet stitches. The crochet stitch that she used is very easy to do, and it allows you to make the luminous tube more visible since the stitches are not very compact.

She continued to repeat the same basic stitches and covered the entire length of the luminous light tube until it reached the desired carpet size. The result is so gorgeous!

Once you have become confident with crochet and the basic stitches you can use another type of thread. The thinner the thread the more stitches you will have to make to cover a luminous tube.
