I have a good crochet & knitting friend, Cati, who’s very talented and crafty (you may have seen some of her work on the blog). This past winter Cati has been crocheting a few shawls, but she fell in love with Lost in Time shawl, created by Johanna Lindahl. It’s a free pattern on Ravelry.
Last fall we both bought a few cakes of Scheepjes Whirl yarn, we both love how this yarn change colors so subtle and we were curious to see how this yarn feels like. This gradient yarn it’s not particularly cheap – about 21 pounds per 220 gr., but its worth every cent!
Because this particular yarn is not available in Romanian yarn stores, we bought it from WoolWarehouse.co.uk – I highly recommend this online store for yarn and needles as the prices are fair and there are so many brands to choose from. And from time to time, the sales campaigns are really good.
Anyway, as I said, my friend, Cati fell in love with the Lost in Time shawl, so as soon as we got the yarn, she made a shawl. And then another one. And another one. I think she made about 4 or 5 shawls using this pattern and various brands of yarn.
And because I’m a curious person, I’ve also started a Lost in Time shawl, using various skeins of yarn I have in my stash, hoping to downsize it. While mine is still a work in progress, Cati’s work is finished and looks amazing!
Here’s her Lost in Time shawl using Scheepjes Whirl yarn. It’s the softest shawl every, perhaps because it’s a blend of 60% cotton / 40% acrylic.
Have you ever made a Lost in Time Shawl? Or have you used Scheepjes Whirl yarn? Would love to read about your experiences with this yarn and/or this crochet pattern. Leave us a comment in the section below 🙂
