2019 Special Olympics Scarf Project

2019 SO collage

*** 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 2019 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.

When you bag up the scarves, please put the dimensions on the outside of the bag, e.g., “7 inches wide, 5 feet 3 inches long” or “Cowl” or “Infinity.”
