Time for The Red Scarf Project Again

I’ve been a follower of the Red Scarf Project for years. This program, a part of Foster Care to Success, sends care packages that include red scarves to college students who have been in the foster care system on Valentine’s Day. It’s a sweet little reminder that someone cares about them and is thinking about them.

The project requirements are for knit or crocheted scarves that measure about 60 inches long and 5 to 8 inches wide. They’re for young adults of both genders, so keep that in mind when designing. They also should have red in them in some way, but you can choose the shade.

Scarves are only accepted between now and December 15, so get to knitting if you’re moved to.

One of my patterns, the Basketweave Scarf, is featured in their suggested patterns, but I actually knit a similar one, the 4×4 woven scarf, which I sent in to the project many years ago.
