This Month’s Featured Organization: Handmade Especially for You

Handmade Especially for You is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that I’ve featured twice before in the charity spotlight series. Handmade Especially for You collects handmade comfort scarves for distribution to dozens of women’s shelters for domestic violence survivors in California. As of this writing, they have distributed over 180,000 scarves!

You can find the parameters for donation, printable gift tags to attach to your scarf donations, free crochet and knitting patterns, the shipping address, and more on the Handmade Especially for You website.

Tips for Comfort Skinny Scarves for Donation

As most parts of California do not experience harsh winters, the comfort scarves for Handmade Especially for You are meant to be fun to wear, skinny scarves with a touch of fun. Using novelty yarns such as fur yarns, glitter yarns, and so on is highly recommended! The recommended size is 4″ (10 cm) to 4.5″ (11.5 cm) wide x 60″ (152.5 cm) long.

About the Celeste Skinny Scarf

This skinny scarf crochet pattern combines 3 really fun yarns from King Cole! King Cole yarns are available at your local yarn shop. Glitz DK is an acrylic yarn with a touch of glittery polyester. Glitz DK is available online at LoveCrafts | Wool Warehouse UK. Galaxy DK is a wool and acrylic blend with a touch of payette. This yarn has lovely sequins that add so much sparkle to your finished project. Galaxy DK is available online at LoveCrafts | Wool Warehouse UK. Both Glitz DK and Galaxy DK are light (#3/double knitting/DK) weight yarns. Cosmos is a glitter and payette yarn that is much thinner lace (#0/fingering) weight yarn. Cosmos is available online at LoveCrafts | Wool Warehouse UK. For this pattern, I used one strand of each yarn held together throughout, making something that glitters and shimmers in the light. The pattern is just a simple one-row repeat, and if you need help, I’ve included a video tutorial for the stitch pattern.
