The 2011 Special Olympics Scarf Project received overwhelming support from the knitting and crocheting communities as these contributed over 26,000 scarves to 35 participating programs. Little Sweet Knittings Designs is a proud supporter and even has published an original design, Shriver Scarf, for the occasion, which is posted here.
But don’t put your knitting needles and crochet hooks away just yet. The Scarves for Special Olympics has announced the official 2012 colors:
- Red Heart Super Saver 387-Soft Navy
- Red Heart Super Saver 319-Cherry Red
- Red Heart Soft 4604-Navy
- Red Heart Soft 9925-Really Red
Although submissions do not start until November 2011, you can get a head start by checking out the free patterns at the website or using the official colors to knit our Shriver Scarf pattern. Let’s get working to beat the 2011 scarf contributions!
