In my last post, Knit Someone a Hug, I introduced a pattern by designer, Yumiko Alexander, who created a scarf pattern to help those devastated by the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.
Yumiko has also created a crochet version of the Dan Doh - Hug for Japan Scarf. In the Japanese culture, handmade gifts are considered precious and valuable. Yumiko has created these scarves as a way to connect with those in her homeland.
How can crocheting a scarf help?
- If you would like to crochet for the survivors in Japan, send your completed projects to Tempe Yarn and Fibre, 1415 E. University Drive #A-102, Tempe, AZ 85281.
- Crochet for those close to home. We all know someone who has been through tragedy. Make them a Crocheted Hug Scarf to let them know you care.
