The Equinox, which occurs twice a year when the sun crosses the celestial equator, when day and night is of equal length, happens to fall during the “in between” seasonal phases when the trees are typically bare, but not yet covered in snow. This time of stark contrasts inspired the pattern.


Equinox is a long, draped, rectangular scarf, with instructions to modify for a cowl version.


Yardage requirements breakdown as follows:
SCARF- 500 yards MC, 280 yards CC
COWL- 250 yards MC, 140 yards CC


NOTE: Pattern was written for DK weight, but any weight yarn could be substituted. However, I would highly recommend using the same weight yarn for both colors and a corresponding needle size for your yarn weight. Finished dimensions will vary.


It is very helpful to print this pattern when knitting, so that you can mark your rows as you go. Or use a digital version on a pdf reader in which you can highlight or makes notes.
