Guidelines for Scarves

1) Soft yarns are advisable: cotton, baby yarn, microfiber, silk and cashmere are good
2) If yarn used has any wool content, please attach a note.
3) Use your own crochet/knit pattern, your own creativity or browse the free pattern links on the sidebar
4) Adult sizes needed.

*Note from Carrie: After participating in The Love Scarf Project for 4 years, I was finally able to help deliver scarves to City of Hope last year. What I learned from the experience is that this project makes a difference because of the quality of scarves and caps, not necessarily the quantity. When it comes to deciding what scarf or cap to make, if you make something you would love to receive as a gift and wear all the time, that is the kind of scarf or cap that will bring tears to the patient's eyes.

**If you are participating the LA Love Scarf project, scarves must also be washed once finished and placed in ziploc bags to minimize the passing of germs & animal hair exposure as much as possible. If you are unable to wash and package your scarf/hat, please make sure we receive it in LA by February 7th so we can prepare it for delivery.
