We need 3000 scarves by the end of the year so it's time to get going!!! What better time to knit scarves than the summer - they're perfectly portable and don't take a lot of time! We even have a series of classes scheduled for May and June based on one book called Reversible Scarves. These scarves have some new techniques for knitters to learn to keep things interesting.
Scarf Rules: Red and Black washable yarn. 6 inches wide, 60 inches long. Any pattern, knit or crochet.
Please help us NOW. We got a late start last year after Red Heart dropped out and they only collected 900 scarves and this is an ALL OR NOTHING proposition - either they ALL get scarves or no one gets one to wear into the opening ceremony.
These are Cascade 220 sport weight scarves meant for the Texas weather and we have all of the colors together in ONE PLACE!! It's miraculous!! Please call the shop if you would like to buy one - 512-291-8866 - they are $70 plus shipping
