Squishy Ribbed Scarf

by on October 21, 2014

Welcome to another Tutorial Tuesday! Today, we’re making another wonderful crochet scarf for the Red Scarf Project! Other Red Scarf Project patterns can be found here.

Why are we making red scarves? Every year, Trillium Health (formerly AIDS Care Rochester) collects handmade red scarves to sell on World AIDS Day. Funds from the sale of these scarves help fund Trillium Health’s AIDS/HIV programs. Dan’s Crafts & Things is proud to support Trillium Health’s Red Scarf Project by being a collection site for red scarves.

How can you help? Make a red scarf (any shade of red, not just bright red); any craft is welcome – knitting, loom knitting, crocheting, sewing, weaving, etc. Bring your handmade red scarf to Dan’s Crafts & Things for collection by Monday, November 24th.
