White Lotus features lovely scintillating organic forms enhanced by beaded nupps. The lotus flowers are framed by the bobble-like texture of the nupps, and the beads appear as dew drops on the flowers.
The scallops along the edges naturally form from the heavily-biasing nature of the stitch pattern. The shape of this stole is a cross between a rectangle and a triangle, thus providing both an interesting project to knit as well as to wear.
