Kanzashi are traditional Japanese hair ornaments, typically in vivid colors and floral shapes — worn especially in modern times by brides.
This nubby yarn is the ultimate attention-getter!
Patterns pictured here can be found in Noro Magazine in various issues.
Pair it with Noro Bachi and make a Bachi Ball Shawl, or even a Nightshift shawl (shop sample shown here: Nightshift shawl with Noro Kanzashi and Bachi, both in 02 - Kameoka; coordinating colours look great, but contrasting - doesn't matter which shades - would be even lovelier).
