Freebie Friday: Supporting the Special Olympics

For Freebie Friday I wanted to spotlight a great opportunity to help support the Special Olympics. Anyone can participate and help with this. They are asking people to crochet or knit scarves to donate for the Special Olympics. The scarves are presented to athletes, parents, coaches, volunteers, etc.

This is going on throughout the USA and even if you don't live in the US you can still send scarves in. Just go to the website and select a state. It will give you the date they want the scarves turned in by, as well as the address you can mail them to.

If you'd like to know more and participate go to this website:
http://www.scarvesforspecialolympics.org/ Or I can email you a pdf of the particulars. : )

You can either use the pattern from RedHeart or use your own. They just ask that you use their colors. You have two scarf options: Red Heart (319) Cherry Red and (387) Soft Navy or (9925) Red Heart Soft Yarn Really Red and (4604) Navy. You can match the colors as well but they want you to use these colors. They also have scarf patterns for crocheting and knitting from Red Heart, or you can use your own. Just take a look at the website, it has all the information.

Happy Crocheting and a wonderful weekend!
