Named by Mahesh Prabhu from Thane, India!
He said:
"it have 8 sides of petals,,,it looks like a " Blue Lotous" to me ....its a representence sign of everything good with you...in indian mythalogy 8 number is good for everything like;EastWestNorthSouth and other four sides. i feel to name it "LAXMI" (who is the Goddess of the wealth,love,curiocity towards her chidren (as we all are the child to her),you can always find her image with seated on "LOTUS",and surrounding with lotus and "ELEPHANTS".ITS THE SIGN OF PROSPERITY.)"! Awesome toughts, I couldn't resist! @;)
After the Rainbow Crochet Lace Umbrella/Parasol (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=375554.msg4428555#msg4428555) I wanted to use the same pattern for something wearable. First I made a cardigan for myself (http://www.flickr.com/photos/babukatorium/4399886218/in/set-72157623412122545/) but it was quite far from the perfection: it's not that comfortable! I've already told You that most of the times my projects don't turn out how I want them to be... Well this is one of the failed projects!  Wink
But after some months I tried again... Using a different hook the motif became less big, so I could think about following the circle the same shaped way as I do with the new mandala design (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=380953.msg4508270#msg4508270). After the armholes I just added a pointy edging for make the vest a little bit ruffled. I hope You like it!









Ah! And finally I crocheted something "human sized" (nearly all of my models are XS/S but this one is came out M/L)!  Grin

That is absolutely beautiful.  I thought it was a little flower for your hair from the thumbnail- it is even more incredible now that I know it is full-sized and wearable!  Looks like a lot of time and love went into making it.
