Red Scarf Project


Yikes!  I forgot all about the Red Scarf Project this year!  I'm going to try and crochet a couple of quick red scarves and mail them before the December 15th deadline!
I've been knitting and/or crocheting scarves for this good cause ever since my friend, photographer, Gail Zucker told me about it in 2009.
Here is a description from the Orphan Foundation of America site: In 2005, OFA launched a unique initiative to warm the hearts (and necks) of college-bound foster youth. We began taking donations of handmade red scarves to put into our Valentine's Day Care Packages.

There are other ways to donate besides sending a handmade scarf.  Check out the website

Is there a pattern for Ellen's red scarf she donated in 2011? I really like it. I am making some scarves for this project this year. Thanks.

My 2011 Scarf is crocheted with Vanna's Choice worsted weight yarn in Red, Size "K" crochet hook. It's just a basic V-Stitch. You can find the V-stitch pattern here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ZaupOKNXZY
