2012 Special Olympics Scarf Project

Recommended Posts

Here are the two scarves made for the Special Olympics. I haven't decided whether to make a third one or not.

Here's another one -- a variation of my Ripple-band Accessories scarf pattern. For this version, ch 26 to start to make scarf 6” wide, as specified for the Special Olympics scarf project. Work alternating color blocks for 10" (22 rows, 11 ridges), 3 blocks each color for a total of 60” long. So easy & fast, I made this one in about 3 hours while watching a baseball game!

Just completed 2012 Special Olympics scarf #5. This is Chunky Stripe Scarf worked in 2 rows each of the 2 designated colors (Cherry Red & Soft Navy) instead of alternating through 3 colors as called for in pattern.

I wish I could get the Soft Red Heart Super Saver locally. Our Walmart had a few colors briefly, then suddenly clearanced them out. I was excited to hear that Red Heart is giving a special discounted price on these colors when you order online! Yay! But.... it seems the Soft super Saver sizes are sold out in those colors. They are offering the Color Soft Navy and Cherry Red in Supersaver size for $2.99 http://www.shopredheart.com/default.aspx?PageID=424&ProjectID=3 So that is nice. I just wanted to make my scarves with the SOFT! (Do you see a big old 50+ year old pout going on? I have always been good with the bottom lip out bit! LOL!)

I am so excited to see this!!! I haven't been on the net much for a while and today I popped in. I was able to pick up a skein of each color today and now I'm hunting up a pattern that I think is just right :)

Hi everyone,

 

I was going through my closet, when I realized I had some yarn for this year's project! I got a little sidetracked this summer with a new grandbaby & had forgotten about it! :blush

 

I went online & discovered the project is still going! I have two brothers-in-law who have been Special Olympians in the state of Wisconsin, so I'm am going to make two scarves & donate them in their honor! I checked & the Wisconsin is asking that we don't mail the scarves until the first week of January, so I've got plenty of time! You can go to the webpage here & see what the dates are for the state of your choice.
