Nelumbo (the lotus flower) is a seamless sweater, worked from top down, with a decorative, lacy cable pattern in the yoke, which spreads around the circular yoke just like the petals of a blooming flower. An empire waist combined with an A-line shape of the sweater emphasizes the grace and the beauty of the female body and ensures the casual and comfortable look.
