CURVES

Just one ball of yarn creates this fun scarf/boa approximately 45" long. Make more than one and attach them together for a longer scarf. Design suggestion - use two balls of your favorite eyelash yarn and make a top and bottom for your curvey scarf, stitch together a top and bottom, stuff the tube for a great toy idea.
