Care Packages for Deployed U. Is there a pattern for the scarves and hats? There is no specific pattern to follow so feel free to use your own — or you can find some here: We do recommend that you keep them simple and perhaps use slightly larger needles so more can be made!
You may notice that the size guidelines are a bit smaller than in the past. It is still absolutely fine. What yarns and colors should we use?
Any soft yarn is fine and any color will be accepted, but if possible please keep the colors on the subtle side—blues, browns, olives, grays, maroon, and black are all good choices, as well as appropriate for male and female troops!
Stripes using these colors or multi-colored yarn is acceptable. If you could do so for each of your hats and scarves include the fiber content information, too it would be most helpful! Will I get a letter of acknowledgment from Operation Gratitude? Yes, we will keep track of all the scarves and hats you send or deliver to the armory, then send you a thank you letter within 12 weeks.
