I found out about this wonderful project just as I was starting to make scarves for the Special Olympics project. I joined the group on Revelry and have been having fun making scarves. The hardest part was finding RH Delft Blue, but I finally got some at a local Wal-Mart. Here are 4 scarves I have made so far. Going from left to right, the first scarf pattern is from http://www.christinascrochethaven.com/ . The second one is from Crochet World, June 2006 which I modified for the colors and yarn choice. The pattern called for Lion Brand Homespun and a sizeN hook. I used RH ww and a J hook.
The third scarf is from a pattern in the Sept/Oct. '08 issue of Crochet today! The one in the magazine had more stripes but I didn't want to deal with all of those ends to weave in so I changed the sequence.
The scarf on the right is from the Red Heart website. There is also a knitted version. This is the site http://www.coatsandclark.com/ and search for special olympics. The link is too long and too unpredictable. I think the pattern is also in a magazine, but I can't put my hands on it right now.
