Wakame is a Japanese seaweed, that grows abundantly throughout the coastal regions of Japan, and has been appreciated for hundreds of years both as an ingredient of traditional cuisine and for its beneficial properties on the body.
It grows in turbulent waters and has a beautiful and elegant appearence when it fluctuates in the sea, with its long, broad leaves.
And this design, inspired by the Japanes alga is made of elongated leaves gently floating around your body with a lot of movement and textural interest in the fabric.
Wakame is a skinny scarf formed by oblonged modules attached one to another while you knit.
Each module is started from the center using the lighter color with a magic cast on, then worked in the round using increases to obtain a leaf shape. Two ruffles are worked in a contrasting color to add movement and interest to the knitting and the final item.
