Dear 2013 Scarf Project Contributors,
On behalf of Special Olympics Indiana, thank you for your contribution to the 2013 Special Olympics Indiana Scarf Project. We know each and every scarf has been handmade with love, encouragement and generosity.
Scarves donated to the 2013 Special Olympics Indiana Scarf Project will be a symbol of unity, support, compassion and empowerment, as the Special Olympics athletes, coaches, families, volunteers and supporters wear them with pride in knowing they are all part of the Special Olympics family.
Your support for Special Olympics Indiana and the 2013 Scarf Project doesn’t have to end once you put down the knitting needles. Follow us on Facebook (/soindiana) and on Twitter (@soindiana.org).

The 2014 Special Olympics Indiana Scarf Project officially launched on March 1st. Thank you letters and invitations were sent to all the contributors from the last three years.
This web page on our website has been created as a resource tool for you. It has the official colors, dimensions, and other resources. Please share with family and friends that enjoy this craft.
The official colors this year are Navy Blue, Cherry Red, and White. The colors were selected in collaboration of the 2014 National Games Team Indiana colors. This is just one way to help encourage and inspire the athletes, partners, coaches, and volunteers that are apart of Team Indiana.
In 2014, we hope to receive 1000 scarves to give to athletes, volunteers and supporters at Winter Games, Ice Skating, State Conference, and to the 2014 National Games Team Indiana members.
In order for the scarves to get to Winter Games, the deadline is Monday, January 6. We will accept scarves throughout the month of January though. Please send them to the State Office. For questions, contact Tracy Miller.
The deadline to receive scarves has been extended until the conclusion of January 2014. As of January 6, we have received approximately 600 scarves. Thank you!!
The official Indiana colors for 2014 are:
Red Heart Super Saver – 387 Soft Navy
Red Heart Super Saver – 319 Cherry Red
Red Heart Super Saver – 311 White
Red Heart Soft – 4004 Navy
Red Heart Soft – 9925 Really Red
Red Heart Soft – 4600 White
We recommend scarvs be a 6-inch width and a 6-foot length, but they do not have to be.
We have no pattern requirements. Each scarf is handcrafted with love, and we welcome each pattern be chosen in the same fashion.
