“Sakura” is a unique lace pattern from a Japanese magazine. With its help, you can create beautiful summer outfits and become a real star on any beach or in the city heat. The crochet pattern and recommendations in my article will help you bring this idea to life and excel at the task.
This pattern is perfect for crocheting a summer top, beach tunic, or pareo. It will not only add a beautiful element to your wardrobe but also serve as a great accessory that will highlight your individuality and originality.
With the help of a crochet hook, you will create the lightness and transparency of the “Sakura” pattern, which includes images of blooming cherry branches.
