Inspired by the Light Carpet, Carmen from the popular crochet blog Crafty Queens decided to make one for herself. So, she picked up a cord of LED lights and a few skeins of textile yarn, and began the somewhat complicated crocheting process of forming a coil. Carmen says that first and foremost, make sure the lights are LED. Since they don’t heat up, LED lights are safe and energy-saving.

“I’m not a total crochet noob, but I had some difficulty figuring this out,” Crafty Queen writes on her blog. “Soon enough though, I got it right! I’m sharing this tutorial with all of you, to spare you some trial-and-error of your own.
Important: When looking for the lights, make sure that they are LED-lights. As far as I know, these don’t heat up, so there’s less chance of fire hazard. They are safer and energy-saving!”
