Make Scarves for the Special Olympics

The colors for the 2012 Special Olympics Scarf Project have been announced!   If you didn’t get to participate in last year’s event, now is a great time to start.  Haven’t heard of the Scarf Project before?  Every year, Red Heart Yarn reaches out to knitters and crocheters in an effort to collect scarves for participating Olympians. Why scarves? The Vice President of Marketing at Coats & Clark, Alyson Bell, explains, “The Scarf Project is an opportunity to create a handmade gift for the athletes, coaches, families, volunteers and supporters who can wear with pride knowing that it is crafted with love.”

Ready to get involved?  Crocheters and knitters are invited to make a scarf (or several) to donate to their states’ participants  in order to show their support for the Special Olympics. Here’s how you can participate:



When you visit the official site, choose your state from the drop-down menu to find out which sports your state participates in, how many scarves they need donated, where to mail completed scarves to, and what the deadline to send scarves in is.  Participating programs will be announced May 23, 2011. Check back to their site for more information.

Happy knitting and crocheting!

Share and Enjoy !
