Mint Lotus is a boxy, loose fitting top perfect for mild, transitional months. The lace design depicts the beautiful saying “out of the mud comes the lotus,” reminding us that through the endurance of hard times growth and beauty can sprout. The lace depicts a root and lotus motif along the bottom edge and lotus flowers running up the front. It features a simple drop shoulder, wide boat neckline, and 3/4 fitted sleeves for a flattering fit. This sweater is knit mostly in the round with the exception of the top of the front and back at the armhole openings. Knit up in Yarn On The House Best Friend yarn, a blend of cotton and wool, it is a lightweight, comfortable top with a bohemian, feminine feel.
