Cusp of Spring is a shawl knitted sideways starting with 3 stitches on one end and gradually increasing at different rates to create its triangular shape. The garter stitch background is interrupted by sections of colourwork using mosaic technique with a twist.
The name Cusp of Spring reflects the design motif of leaves budding in the Spring time.
