It is time for the Special Olympics Scarf Project again!
They are handling the project a bit differently this year and you can CHOOSE which State you want your scarf to go to!
The program has been ongoing, but there are many States that have not met their goal for 2011 yet! Let's try and not have someone go without a knit or crochet scarf! The project is being sponsored by Coats and Clark again. You can read all about how to submit your scarf or scarves HERE.
I loved this pattern that was designed by Darla Fanton. She designed this scarf using the book: 365 Crochet Stitches A Year Perpetual Calendar by Jean Leinhauser and Rita Weiss. I think the pattern stitch she used is beautiful and I just couldn't resist copying it! With permission, of course! Thanks, Darla! The pattern stitch works up so quickly that I was able to make two scarves in a very short period of time.
This time around, the scarves must be knit or crocheted from Red Heart #886 Blue or #512 Turqua.
These are the States that are still in need of scarves (lots of them!) and that you still have time to crochet or knit a scarf for:

I can't wait to see all the beautiful scarves and if all the States meet their goals!
