"This gorgeous shawl is worked in 2 balls of Be So Sporty Yarn's Sporty Cakes. Each 4-color self-striping ball combines to create an 8-stripe shawl. If you prefer a solid color shawl, you can easily substitute for 2 balls of Be So Sporty Yarn instead. The addition of 9 gold ball beads at the edge adds an additional bohemian flair that is one of a kind.

The name makes me think of the local tropical paradise nearby called Sanibel Island. Love the hint of boho influence. I was not familiar with the Be So Sporty yarn so I had to Google. Wow $25 for each skein plus shipping. It looks very much like Sweet Roll or Caron Cakes yarns and they are way less expensive. Could one of those not be used instead?

So beautiful and such a great pattern, thank you! I am not a fan of the striping so am going to make it in a single color simply because that is my preference and I might make it a bit bigger (also personal preference) but the design itself is very nice indeed. Having done a test piece I have found that the pattern is not as difficult as I thought it might be and I think it is really going to be fun to make.

I agree with 3cats2love. I love the look of this shawl, but the yarn is way too expensive. It also doesn't appear that easy to find. YarnSub doesn't even have this yarn on their website to compare a sub yarn.

This is a lovely lacy shawl. However, the Sporty Cakes yarn used to make it is expensive, at least for me paying $60 to $70 for yarn to make a shawl is outside my budget. The Sporty Cakes is a light or sport weight bamboo yarn, so maybe I can find another yarn that I can substitute to bring that cost down somewhat. Any suggestions?

Hello 3cats2love In South Africa there is a lovely bamboo yarn, locally made by Vinnis Colours, that is about R40 (US$3) per 50g ball. Even with postage it would be very economical for you. Check them out on the web.
