Nelumbo nucifera, also known as Indian lotus, sacred lotus, bean of India, or simply lotus, is one of two species of aquatic plant in the family Nelumbonaceae. The lotus is often confused with the water lilies.

This top down, triangle shawls starts from a 3 sts garter tab and grows into a drapey shawl that is big enough to wrap up in. The fine yarn makes it light, yet versatile. Pair it with jeans for a casual look, or that little black dress that just needs a little something to be stunning.
