Florideae was inspired by a documentary on the algae forest located in the Pacific North-West. The documentary explored the treasures and incredible creatures that nestle amongst the seaweeds; this shawl is named after the flowery florideae seaweed. Beads, recalling glass fishing floats, may be applied liberally, or can be left off by simply knitting the stitch marked with a bead rather than working the bead instructions.
For the adventurous intermediate or experienced lace knitter.
