Free Charity Knitting Pattern

Interweave press has a Free Charity Knitting Pattern available on their website in support of the Red Scarf Project 2007.

The Red Scarf Project, a project of Orphan Foundation of America, collects handmade knitted and crocheted scarves, which they then send to college students who don't have parents. The scarves are included in a Valentines Care Package that each youth receives in February.

During the month of January, the Orphan Foundation of America collects the scarves from knitters and crocheters so that the scarves can be distributed in February.

If you would like to knit a scarf or crochet a scarf for the Red Scarf Project, just follow these guidelines:
  • Scarves can be knitted or crocheted.
  • Scarves should be knit or crocheted from red hued yarn. Otherwise, you can use a neutral color yarn such as white, black, or gray.
  • Scarves shoul be about 60 inches long and 5 inches to 8 inches wide
  • Send the knitted or crocheted scarves to the Orphan Foundation of America during January 2007
Don't have a scarf pattern? Interweave Press's Ann Budd has designed a free charity knitting pattern for the Red Scarf Project. It is a free scarf pattern called Ribbed Scarf with a Twist and is available on the Interweave Press website.
