Special Olympic Scarfs

A friend asked if I would make a couple of scarves for Special Olympics.  Every year they try to get enough scarves made so every participant and coach gets a scarf.  Each year they pick two colors that all the scarves are to be made of.  I didn't keep the labels of the yarn, it was Red Heart yarn, Blue & Teague, I believe.
I thought they came out pretty good.  I chose to crochet them since I can get that done so much faster than knitting.  They have a certain width and length requirement, but other than that you can do whatever you want.  The striped scarf I just made up as I went carrying both strands along trying to make a long striped look.
The curved or wavy one was a design I took from an afghan design, it came out pretty neat too.
I am working on some socks (or a sock) right now, hopefully I will post a pic. this next week!
