Thank you for participating in the Red Scarf Fundraiser by Knitspot, now in its 11th year! Your contribution helps a Foster Care to Success scholarship recipient complete their dreams of a college education. Each designer included in this eBook is allowing us to showcase a pattern to raise money for this charitable cause.
The recipients of this scholarship are high-risk individuals who have aged out of foster care, heading into college life without a support system. We’ve been providing this scholarship since 2011 — usually to design majors, a plus for our knitting community — and have seen first-hand the huge impact it has on our student recipients.
Charity funds are raised through sales of original patterns and a custom-dyed artisan yarn, both created just for this event. During the fundraiser, we offer the designs exclusively through 12/31/2021 and donate 100% of profits to the Foster Care 2 Success Scholarship program.
Samples were knit in Festivus 6.0 Fingering and Festivus 6.0 Worsted in colors Rudolph, Elf, and Abominable.
