The 2011 Special Olympics is holding a Scarf Project to welcome its participants. The call went out to knitters and crocheters worldwide to donate scarves to a program of their choice. Turqua and Blue (seen below) are this year’s official colors.
Free patterns for knitted and crocheted scarves can be found at their website. For guidelines and deadlines for each state click on this link. Very specific instructions for packaging the scarves are also mentioned. I am rushing to knit scarves for the Northern California chapter and still tweaking an easy pattern that meets its guidelines. I’ll have picture(s) and pattern(s) posted as soon as I complete one. If you decide to join this project, please email me your scarf photos with its pattern link and I’d be more than happy to post them at this blog.
