The word equinox translates to “equal night,” meaning night and day are about the same length of time. To capture this effect, this pillow pattern mixes dark and light colors equally, alternating autumnal hues in rings to make a dynamic accent for the home.

The reversible pillow is made up of two equal sides that are crocheted together over a 16” pillow insert. The pillow requires approx. 50 grams each of Sunburst Gold, Sandy Heather, Warm Carmel, Orchid Thistle and approx. 80 grams of Deep Coral.

Gauge is not critical since final pillow diameter is easily adjusted by making either less rows or more to achieve desired diameter.
