I've made three variation of this shawl within the past two months and finally I can show some better pictures of it.
The first variation I made was actually a shawlette/wrap, that could be held in the front with a button. Unfortunately, I don't have any good pictures of it, so you will have to take my word for it that it was rather cute.
The second variation is a full length shawl, using the same yarn as the shawlette. I gave that one to my mother as a good-bye present. This shawl was crafted using Mini Mochi yarn, one of my favorite yarns to work with.
The third one was made using a blend of merino wool and silk, and let me say that this shawl is so soft, light, fluffy and warm! It is also super smooth and it drapes beautifully.
Also, this shawl going onto the market for $150, free shipping and handling. It will be on this website for a few days before going onto Etsy. This is a one time deal of getting this shawl in this yarn content as the rest will be either in merino wool, gradation wool, or pure silk. Remember, commissions are (generally) cheaper than pre-made items!
For those who don't know, Sakura is Japanese for Cherry Blossom. Of course I had to make a shawl based off that.
