On the Cusp is a slightly asymetrical, shallow trianglular shawl. There is basic stranded colorwork patterning, making it a great beginner pattern!

This shawl was designed to work with 2 colors from the limited edition Toshstrology collection, dyed exclusively for Jimmy Beans Wool by Madelinetosh. My birthday happens to fall on the cusp between two different astrological signs, so I created a shawl inspired by that junction between signs.

The sample uses the ’16 May - Gemini, and ’16 June Cancer colors, but it will look great in just about any color combination!
