Sakura Shawl

Sakura is Japanese for cherry blossom. One of my Instagram followers (bee.makes) mentioned it and I thought it was the perfect name for this beauty!

About the yarn

I made this one with a Colourful yarn cake (nr 5001) by Durable, which is a dutch yarn brand. Unfortunately its not available yet in the UK or US but this dutch website Caro’s Atelier might ship it worldwide.

This yarn is not twisted, which makes it a bit of a challenge, but believe me you’ll get the hang of it and it sure is worth it! The result is really really nice and stays nice even after washing and wearing it a lot. TIP: Using a Clover hook will make a huge difference. Clover Amour is my favorite hook anyway but especially with splitty yarn, I couldn’t do without my Clover hook. If you are a bit unsure about using yarn that’s not twisted, then use a populair yarn cake like Whirl

Now repeat row 12 – 15 (pictures 30-33) with an extra repetition * in every row as many times as possible (or until you reached desired size)and make sure you have some yarn left for the tassels. I did 81 rows.

For the tassels I cut 30 threads of 30 cm, 2x. ( 3 tassels in total, but the first one you already cut before you started). I used a Clover Tasselmaker to cut the threads. I love this tool I use it all the time!
