2018 Special Olympics Scarf Project

 

*** Red Heart and Special Olympics concluded the Scarf Project in 2012.

However, individual state programs may choose to continue the scarf project on their own.

Any updated information that I receive from the individual state programs will be posted on this page.

You are also welcome to join the Facebook and Ravelry group pages for any additional updates, to share your projects, and for crochet and knit camaraderie! ***

This is the current list of states who are participating in the 2018 Scarf Project.

More states will be added to the list as soon as they let us know of their details. If your state is not on the list, then the state program is either not participating in the project, or has not provided their information yet.

Please do consider making a scarf or two for other states.

Every scarf made for an athlete makes a difference.

  1. I enjoy doing this for Special Olympics. I do my home state plus some others. I do have a question. For South Dakota it shows dark shade of blue for the main color. Can it be any shade of blue??

    • Hi – Yes, it can be any shade of blue.
      If you’re on Facebook or Ravelry, do join the groups and see what others are making for the project.
      Thanks so much for supporting the SO Scarf Project! /Marissa
