As some know, I work with special needs children. They have a special place in my heart. (Funny I was terrified of them as a youth.) Even though it is summer I was thinking about scarves. Last year I made several of the Pink Ribbon scarves and probably will again.
I wanted a scarf with the Autism Awareness Ribbon. There are some out there but they are honestly more complicated than I want. So I stumbled across this blanket. I loved it but REALLY don’t need another blanket project right now. (I have 4 in the works right now!)
Anyway, I decided to make a scarf from this general idea. This is the first one. Kinda a prototype. It must not be too bad. A lady from the Robeson County chapter of Autism Society asked me if I would consider making one for a raffle. And someone else who has an autistic child asked for one for later. So here is my first version. I think I will tweak it a little in the future. But not sure how right now. I honestly just had to get the idea out of my head.
