#ScarfUp and keep out the cold, is the message from Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust official charity CW+ and a group of prolific artists, who have turned their hand to scarf design.
As we approach the colder winter months and a second wave of COVID-19, nine artists have designed scarves to help patients with respiratory illnesses prevent COPD, asthma, and COVID-19-related attacks. Each artist donated a unique scarf pattern, reflecting their personal artistic styles, which are now available as knitting patterns. The patterns can be downloaded for free on the CW+ website.
We need volunteer community knitters to make and donate these scarves to the hospital, so that patients can receive them when returning for follow-up appointments. The #ScarfUp project features patterns from: A Space Between, Annie Morris, Bryony Phipps-Wardle, Caragh Thuring, Charlotte Cranidge, Denzil Forrester, Michael Landy, Supermundane, and Victoria Delphine Moore
To get involved download the pattern of your choice and get knitting! To donate a scarf you have knitted for patients, please post it to the following address: CW+, Unit 4 Verney House, 1B Hollywood Road, London, SW10 9HS.

The CW+ #ScarfUp project is inspired by the Asthma UK #Scarfie campaign, which encourages asthmatics to wear scarves around their mouths and noses to help prevent asthma attacks. #ScarfUp will not replace obligatory face coverings worn to help protect people from catching Coronavirus, but should be used in addition to face masks.
