I used the pattern called Lost in Time on the Mijo Crochet website for this beautiful alpaca shawl.
Johanna Lindah, who designed this pattern, lives in Sweden, and has included 12 different translations of the pattern, including English, lucky for me. I love the vintage look, and all the different stitches she has included, which just makes this project so interesting and fun! Her pattern is a repetition of 12 rows, and because I like to combine colors, I used 12 different alpaca yarn colors, some solid colors, some hand painted, some tone-on-tone.
Johanna put tassels on her shawls, which I opted not to do, just thought the edge was so pretty all by itself.
You can use any yarn, or hook, and customize your shawl size by the number of repetitions. Using a 4.0mm (G) Hook, the finished dimensions of the shawl I made were 72″ across x 42″ from the center to the point of the triangle, and took 1015 yards.
Several stitches you might not be familiar with are the Picot Stitch and the Popcorn Stitch. Check out the helpful tutorials below:
It is a perfect pattern for our NEW Mini Madness Yarn Packs. I’m thinking with one size smaller crochet hook than what I used, 900 yards would work for this shawl.
