Wrap yourself in elegance with this lacy Oceans Shawl!
Every once in a while I come across a yarn that screams “try me!” These gradient cakes by Amanda of Panda Yarns were those!
When I first came across Panda Yarns in a local Facebook group that I am a part of, I was drawn to their stunning colours and gradual colour changes. Amanda makes yarn an art. And no, she is not a sponsor of this post – I’ve just fallen in love with her yarn!
I chose three different colour ways to try (so stay tuned! Three more GORGEOUS shawls are coming!), and decided to dive into these blues first.

The Design and Yarn:
The Oceans Shawl is a rectangular shawl. It is worked in rows lengthwise. It is all one piece and the final edging is only worked along the one long side.
The Gradient Cakes by Panda Yarns are 100% cotton. They are plied yarn which means that there are multiple strands held together and not wound (there is no twist in the yarn). Because of this, working with the yarn does take a bit to get used to so that it does not split when you insert your hook. The colour changes are subtle and beautiful!

I love, love, love this shawl and think I will make it my sis’s fave color lavender. Pretty don’t you think? It will have to wait to be worn until next summer as winter is soon arriving. Thank you and God bless!

Re: the yarn used in your Oceans Shawl, you describe it as a lightweight 3, but Amanda’s website describes the 5ply as a number 2 sport weight. Please can you clarify?

I immediately fell in love with this shawl! I want to make it for my mother, but she has a big size. Can you tell me the multiples to make it bigger?
Thank you so much, hope to hear from you soon, because I can’t wait to begin.
