Free Crochet Pattern – Loopy Ends Scarf – Special Olympics 2012

Free Crochet Pattern – Loopy Ends Scarf

 

In 2011 the Red Heart yarn company sponsored a charitable scarf project for the 2012 Special Olympics. Specific colors were chosen and knitters and crocheters all across the country began creating unique scarves to be given to the Olympic athletes for the games. It would have been easy to just pick a pre-written pattern and make a scarf, but I wanted to create something unique so I designed this scarf specifically for the  project. Since that time, the project has been discontinued, but the pattern lives on.

It’s an easy crochet pattern that almost any crocheter can make. I’d love to feature a photo of your completed crochet scarf project if you decide to use this pattern! Just send me an email with the photo attached along with your name and contact information and I’ll post it here on this blog as well as on my Facebook Yarn Obsession page. Have fun creating!

    Reminder: The Special Olympics Scarves Project was discontinued in June, 2012, due to a surplus of donated scarves.

    But some Special Olympics state programs are continuing to accept scarves for 2013. Check your state’s SO website.
