Here is a scarf I made for the 2010 Special Olympics.  I had fun with this pattern and finally learned how not to tangle my yarns when doing crochet colorwork.  If you happen to be on Ravelry, you can find the free pattern HERE.

Warm the hearts and fuel the spirits of Special Olympics athletes!

February 2, 2010 by h2brandworks
In 2009, the Special Olympics World Winter Games invited knitters and crocheters from around the USA and the world to create a special gift for the athletes of the World Games. The response was overwhelming with more than 55,000 handmade scarves, and in the end created an incredible sense of welcome and well-wishes for the Special Olympics athletes, where the response and generosity is still spoken about today.

With the 2010 Special Olympics Idaho Winter Games approaching in just five weeks, we are hoping to welcome the athletes here in our great state with a personal gift that inspires them to strive for their best in competition while sharing the spirit, kindness and respect of all communities.

Lets bring the scarves back!

Our goal is to provide the gift of a hand knit or crocheted scarf to each of the 650 athletes competing in the Idaho Winter Games as they arrive during the Opening Ceremony on March 12, 2010.
Anyone is welcome to knit or crochet a scarf for the 2010 Special Olympics Idaho Winter Games, we just ask that you follow a few simple guidelines to help maintain consistency and uniformity across these gifts for the athletes.

Design: Any design or pattern is welcome.
Colors: Red Heart Super Saver Cherry Red and Red Heart Grey Heather
Length: Approximately 55 inches long
Width: Approximately 5 inches long

All scarves must arrive by Tuesday, March 9, 2010.

Please deliver or ship to:
Special Olympics Idaho
Attn: Scarf Project
199 East 52nd Street
Garden City, ID 83714

I've been meaning to try my hand at intarsia for a long time, but all the patterns I've found previously have overwhelmed me. Thanks for hooking me up (hehehe...a pun...) with this pattern, which only requires the two colors. Your scarf looks fantastic, and I shall probably use it as a visual reference when I make my own. Great job!
