Hottest SuperBowl Item for 2012

Posted on February 5, 2012 at 3:10 PM

The buzz around the craft world today is the

2012 Indianapolis Blue & White Volunteer Scarves.

The project was announced in January of 2010 with a goal of 8,000 scarves for each of their volunteers around the stadium. To reach this goal they projected they would need to receive about 12 scarves per day. The Indianapolis Super Bowl Host Committee asked the community to hand knit, crochet, or weave a scarf for each of the volunteers. The completed scarves would be sent to the Indiana Women's Prison to have a unique Official Super Bowl Host Committee patch hand sewn onto each scarf.
